Description

Join us for a special lecture with nationally renowned artist, conservationist, educator and award winner, Carol Decker. She has been a self-taught artist since the age of twelve. Over the years, her sensitive use of color and her realistic, finely detailed art have brought her many national awards and noted achievements. Carol Decker’s artwork is well respected in New Jersey as well as nationally and internationally.

Decker has spent countless hours studying birds and animals in the field and a lifetime painting wildlife and its environment. At times she also includes buildings in Sussex County to help preserve or recapture them in art to bring attention to the needs of these historical icons, such as Winding Brook Farm, Lusscroft Farm, and even the lost Kuser Mansion from High Point State Park.

“I have many times utilized my gift to help a cause. It gives gratification and greater meaning to being an artist to use it this way. I feel good when I’m creating, I want people to feel good when they view my work, an emotional contact, a smile, a sense of calm, and to shine a light on the beauty around us, however small, unnoticed and underfoot."

Among many other accomplishments, Decker also had the honor of being chosen by the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area (NJ and PA) to design and paint two ornaments to be displayed on the White House Christmas Tree in the Blue Room honoring our National Parks, and attended the Christmas White House Artist’s Reception.

Surely a lecture not to miss!
