- SUBJECT: Vanishing Florida – a Highwayman Style Exhibition by Lynn Herrick
paintings from Dec. 29th to Jan. 30th at the W. T. Bland Library in Mt. Dora.
Herrick’s work has evolved from charcoals, acrylics, photography, pottery, basketry, fused glass
and, finally, to oils. She has studied these various mediums in Miami, Hendersonville (NC), and
Ocala. She now paints in the traditional Highwaymen style having studied with R. L. Lewis, Jr.,
one of the original Highwaymen, for the past four years. Lynn has lived in Florida for over 50
years and feels that the Florida she captures on her canvases is disappearing exponentially with
rampant “development.” She is dedicated to preserving this vanishing landscape in her own
Herrick’s “Vanishing Florida” series will be exhibited in the Community Room of the library
during regular hours. Please note that our Community Room is heavily used and may not always
be available. Please call (352) 735-7180 option 5 to check on the room availability for viewing.
