Some of the art works on display during the Paul C. Rhyne Art Exhibition at the Lincoln Cultural Center are available for sale. The competition, sponsored by the Arts Council of Lincoln County, began with a reception and awards Friday evening (Oct. 21st).

Prizes were awarded for first, second and third place ($300, $200 and $100) as well as honorable mentions ($25 each).

Winners named Friday evening were:

  • First Place: "Dragon Flower" by Trey Mayhew
  • Second Place: "Second Wave" by Robert Gray Cooper
  • Third Place: "I Am Free" by Jane Mitchell
  • Honorable Mention: "Ag & Wes" by Kae B. Wright
  • Honorable Mention: "Cabellero" by Trey Mayhew
  • Honorable Mention: "Port Royal" by Beverly Putnam (not pictured)

The exhibition is named for the late Paul Conrad Rhyne, Jr., who died in February 2007 at age 89. He was a graduate of Lincolnton High School, attended Roanoke College and graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in architecture; served in the US Navy aboard the USS North Carolina during World War II. He was an executive of Rhyne Mills. At his church, Emmanuel Lutheran, he was active on the church council, served as superintendent of the Sunday school and was a member of the choir.

As a patron of the arts, Mr. Rhyne was a co-founder of the Lincoln Arts Council (as it was called in those days--now the Arts Council of Lincoln County). He served on the board of directors of Opera Carolina and on the planning committee and board of the Lincoln Cultural Center. He helped plan the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center in Charlotte and was a trustee of the Lincoln County chapter of the North Carolina Symphony.

He loved to paint and his work was displayed at the Mint Museum of Art in Charlotte. He also won literary awards for his poetry.

He was active in many charitable and civic enterprises--a member of the Kiwanis Club and served in leadership positions with the United Way, the Heart Fund and the American Cancer Society. He chaired the committee that worked for passage of the bond referendum to build the Citizens Center. In 1979, he was named Lincoln County's Man of the Year.

The annual art competition was named for him because of his lifelong contributions to the arts--as an artist, as a benefactor, and as a worker.

You can view this year's exhibition through Thanksgiving week at the Lincoln Cultural Center, 403 East Main Street in Lincolnton during regular hours. Admission is free.
