Artist Carol Northington is no stranger to the New Tampa Regional Library.

Her creations have graced its walls off and on at 1001 Cross Creek Blvd. since August 2007.

A sampling of her most recent artworks will be on display through the end of September.

For the fourth time, Northington has been selected as the North Tampa Arts League’s Artist of the Month and has been granted an exhibition at the library.

Acrylic paint is her medium of choice and bright colors and texture are commonplace in most of her pieces.

“I try to incorporate all three elements of design, color and texture in my paintings,” Northington said.

On the other hand, some of her works are created in black and white, and she prefers to use charcoal when painting portraits.

Northington is a native of Dallas, Texas, and she studied art and design at the University of North Texas and the University of Texas in Austin. She holds a bachelor’s degree in business management from Rutgers University.

Her artwork has also been shown at the Carrollwood Cultural Center, Hunter’s Green Country Club, and the Jimmie B. Keel Regional Library.

Northington is a founding member and past president of the North Tampa Art League, whose membership is composed of some 60 artists and friends.
