This month Bishop’s Stock is featuring the work by artists who consistently offered new work to the gallery. It is a pleasure to group them together to show the diversity of their work in oil and watercolor. All live within 30 miles of each other but the imagery and subjects they paint are diverse but all with Eastern Shore feeling.

Opening Reception for October’s Featured Artists – Lois Engberg, Lynne Lockhart, Kirk McBride, Nancy Mysak, Nancy West, Keith Whitelock

Our feature in October shows recent work by 6 gallery artists – Lois Engberg, Lynne Lockhart, Kirk McBride, Nancy Mysak, Nancy West, Keith Whitelock. Bishop’s Stock is pleased to have these artists show with us throughout the year but their work deserves to appear more often. We have found a group show gives a wonderful appreciation for the great talent we show. Each artist will have a selection of new work. Included will be a number of small studies by Lynne Lockhart.

Opening Reception for September’s Featured Artists Ann Hayden & Maurice Spector

Meet September’s Featured Artists – Ann Hayden and Maurice Spector – and see how their work blends natural images familiar to life on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. 

September Featured Artists – Ann Hayden & Maurice Spector

In September we are pleased to feature the work of two of our favorite artists from the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Ann Hayden and Maurice Spector are inspired by the simple things that influence the way they live in the Chesapeake Bay region. Instead of representational landscapes one may expect, the show features simple images such as birds and wood forms. Ann likes the sculptural and interactive quality of birds that influence her feelings. Her paintings are mostly large with simple images and often they include subtle messages. Similarly Maurice’s sculptures are simple forms but his ink and watercolor paintings are very detailed. As with their past features, Ann and Maurice will make you think “outside the box” with a smile.

Opening Reception for MFA Colleagues from The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts

Gallery artists, Leslie Belloso, introduced the idea of showing the diverse work of 8-10 artists who were with her in the initial Low Residency MFA program at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Come see the range of work these art professionals have created to meet the credentials for their MFA program.

August Featured Artists – Leslie Belloso, Elizabeth Ayerle, Barbara Diaz-Tapia, Claudia Eckel, Maria Jimenez, Tania O’Donnell, Ilene Spiewak, Tye Powell

Our August feature is a show of work by gallery artist Leslie Belloso and 7 colleagues – Elizabeth Ayerle, Barbara Diaz-Tapia, Claudia Eckel, Maria Jimenez, Tania O’Donnell, Ilene Spiewak, Tye Powell – all members of the inaugural class (2017) of the Low Residency MFA program at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. In order to earn MFA degrees Leslie along with the others spent three “on campus” summer semesters and 4 “off campus” fall and spring semesters as a way of achieving the degree when unable to do a full-time on campus MFA. The artists come from different walks of life and different parts of the US. We will show a selection of their work. Most of them paint but the work is diverse. Several work in mixed media, video and installation art. Check our Facebook page to see their work. These artists are very committed to expanding their professional credentials.

Collage Workshop with Angela Herbert-Hodges

Surrounded by Angela’s recent show you will be working on developing surface variations.

If you have not collaged, we will be gluing different papers on paper & canvas and exploring the difference that happens by adding them to your paintings. We will use several techniques to arrive at finished work by the end of the lesson.

This workshop is for beginners, as well as others who already have developed work. Call Bishop’s Stock to register or contact Angela at alherberthodges@gmail.com. or call Bishop’s Stock at 410-632-3555.

Opening Reception for Maureen Farrell & Angela Herbert-Hodges

Come meet our June artists, Maureen Farrell and Angela Herbert-Hodges, and find out more about their approach to mixed media work. We will be tasting our featured wines from the Columbia Valley, Washington. 

June Feature Artists – Maureen Farrell & Angela Herbert-Hodges

Bishop’s Stock is switching gears in June with a mixed media feature. Maureen Farrell and Angela Herbert-Hodges have shown here at different times but the way    they use mixed media made it compelling to show their work together. Both artists achieve a level of expression using different images, media and found objects to relate emotion about subjects and experiences. They both make it clear that many aspects of their paintings “just happen” since they both use various watermedia. Check both of their websites – Maureen Farrell and Angela Herbert-Hodges – to learn more about their work and their artistic journeys. Their show opens on Friday, June 1 with an Opening Reception from 5 until 8 when we will be tasting Washington State wines.

Opening Reception for Lynn Mehta & Alison Leigh Menke

May’s show features two artists, Lynn Mehta and Alison Leigh Menke who have been participants in Paint Snow Hill. Plein air and studio paintings are included. We will be tasting our featured wines from France.
