Britton Newland – Emerging Artist

The Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center is thrilled to display works by emerging artist Britton Newland.  Britton has been drawing since she could pick up anything that would make a mark.   Whether it would be on walls, on the pages of books, or in notebooks, she would always find something to draw on.  Britton started to take drawing more seriously when she was in middle school. That was when she decided that art, specifically animation, was her future. As a senior in high school, she thoroughly enjoys her art classes and is grateful for the instruction she has received from her art teachers there. 

Emerging Artist Britton exclaims, “I’ve always had a creative mind. There were so many characters and stories that I thought of and wanted to bring to life; and what better way to bring them to life than to draw them!  There’s not one specific emotion I want people to feel when they see my art. I want people to be able to tell what emotion the characters are feeling in the pieces, even if certain features like mouths cannot be seen on the character.  

I am very honored to have my art showcased here. Never would I have guessed that there would be an opportunity to have my art shown to so many people.”

This free exhibit is now on display through September 2022 on the 3rd floor gallery of the Lucas Mansion at 316 Hiddenite Church Rd, Hiddenite.

The gallery is free and open to the public weekdays from 10:00 am until 4:30 pm and on Saturdays from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.  The Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center’s Lucas Mansion and Educational Complex are handicap accessible.
