Artist Bio:
Evelyn LeNoir Chandler loves to explore the outdoors. She has summited Mt. Whitney thirty times and trekked many other mountain ranges. Her hiking gear always includes pens, pencils, and watercolors. 
An East Tennessee native, Evelyn sold her first painting as a college student and spent three years as the artist for the Emory and Henry College library in Virginia. After studying oil painting in San Francisco, she continued her explorations to Los Angeles, New York, New Jersey, and Dallas.
Evelyn has been a docent at Cheekwood Museum of Arts for several years, and is a member of the Friends of Radnor Lake. She has shown in several venues in the Nashville area and holds two blue ribbons in watercolor from the Tennessee State Fair Fine Arts Competitions, as well as other awards.
Evelyn holds a B.S. degree in Chemistry and Math and a B.A. in Philosophy and Religion.
Presented by The Friends of The Brentwood Library:
Each month, The Brentwood Library hosts two local artists on the Friends of the Brentwood Library (FOBL) Gallery Wall and Showcase Display. Please take a few extra moments the next time you visit to pause and savor these artists' creations.
Each artist who displays their collection on the FOBL Gallery Wall contributes one piece to the our Art Lending Library. With over 230 pieces to choose from, patrons are able to check them out for ninety days. This artwork is a beautiful addition to the library that includes original artwork in acrylics, oils, pen and ink, pastels, photographs, and water colors. A full, detailed description of most items can be found in the Digital Collection on the library’s website.
