VERO BEACH — Main Street Vero Beach is proud to welcome former resident artist Ned Noland back to historic downtown.
Noland’s reception will be at gallery stroll on First Friday, May 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. His work will be on display at 2036 14th Ave. through May 31.
Born and raised in Shreveport, La., Noland developed a love of outdoors early on in life. He grew up hunting and fishing around the lakes and fields of North Louisiana and never forgot the wonderful sights and sounds of those pristine settings. He later began to appreciate fine art after his father became a collector of many several excellent landscape artists including paintings by Texas artist Dalhart Windberg.
After moving to Florida in 1970, Noland continued to appreciate the natural beauty of the Sunshine State and concurrent with his retirement in 2005, he began to seriously develop his painting skills through workshops and intensive self-study. Helped greatly by his teacher and friend, the late Joan Arnold of Vero Beach, Noland learned to refine his art skills and to continually redefine his artistic goals while capturing on canvas the unique beauty of tropical Florida.
Noland is a member of the Sebastian River Art Club and his work resides in both private and corporate collections in Florida and the U.S. He has exhibited in many group and one man shows, and also produces commissioned paintings. His work has won awards at several local art shows and his “St Johns River” painting won first place at the “Art By The Sea” art show sponsored by the Vero Beach Art Club.
