Jean Wenner ~ Artist, Art Advocate & Friend will sorely be missed.

Jean Wenner, founder and former Director of the Council for the Arts passed away December 14, 2010. She truly enriched her community and left a positive legacy in her memory. Her impact on Onslow County concerning the Arts is beyond measure as a pioneer with vision for the arts in our community. She was dedicated to her family and extended family of friends and artists. She opened doors and created many opportunities for countless local artists (myself included) who will forever be grateful for her dedication. She was an accomplished artist whose work crowns many collections throughout the country.

The community has lost a great artist and art advocate... Tami, Olivia, and I have lost a great friend. I am so glad that she got to see the "Jean Wenner Art Library and Studio" named in her honor for her many, many contributions to the arts and our community. She can never be replaced but she will always be remembered!
There is a great tribute to Jean in the Daily News paper... Community mourns the loss of Jean Wenner
