Opening Reception for December Featured Artist Helene English

 

During December Helene English will be featured in our front gallery. Her paintings are so lively it is hard not to smile and chuckle about what story Helene is “telling.” She paints with very clean lines capturing things she captures in the world around her – pets, boats and even manhole covers! She will be here to tell her tales!

Opening Reception for November Featured Artist Scot Dolby

 

Our featured artist in November has been with us for 15 years. Scot Dolby continues to find memorable landscapes wherever he travels but particularly when he is looking for the perfect fishing stream. Come see his most recent work. We will be tasting wines from Bolivia.

November Featured Artist – Scot Dolby

 

Our featured artist in November has been with us for 15 years. Scot Dolby continues to find memorable landscapes wherever he travels but particularly when he is looking for the perfect fishing stream. His show, A View from a Stream, is inspired by great fly-fishing areas from Montana, Maine, Vermont to the Eastern Shore. As he finds a perfect stream Scot does not forget the beauty of the surrounding landscape. He actually carries that memory back home to his studio. His tonal style makes these discovered landscapes so serene. They seem to carry forth a surrounding calm that attracts the fish and the fisherman. The opening reception is First Friday, November 2 from 5 until 8.

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.
