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.

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.
