Chatham Artist Awarded for her Pastel Paintings
people lay low during these hot and humid Summer days, but not Chatham Artist
Kim Werfel. She has been very busy making a splash in the area arts scene. She
won two awards at the state wide exhibition North Carolina Pastel
Societies at the Hickory Museum of Art. Her best in show pastel, “The Lookout”
depicts a group of deer seeking food in the morning light. Werfel’s “Queen of
Swords” won the Pastel Society of Virginia
Award. It is a haunting portrait of a young girl leaning on fencing
foils. An avid animal-lover, Werfel’s art was featured at the 20th
anniversary of the Cole Park Veterinary Clinic in Chatham County.
