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 Lynne Lockhart & Kirk McBride

 

 

Lynne Lockhart and Kirk McBride filled the gallery with new work each April. They show images from their travels and from everyday walks on the beach. This provides a great opportunity to see the largest selection these talented artists show in one space. Come visit at the reception to hear about their travels to Cuba and Texas.

March is a month that makes the change of season a reality. Daylight Savings Time returns March 11 and the Vernal Equinox on March 20 lets us welcome Spring. At Bishop’s Stock our March show reveals what gallery artists have created during winter hibernation.

March Feature – New Work by Gallery Artists

March is a month that makes the change of season a reality. Daylight Savings Time returns March 11 and the Vernal Equinox on March 20 lets us welcome Spring. At Bishop’s Stock our March show reveals what gallery artists have created during winter hibernation. Themes in their new work range from unique still life subjects to interesting travel destinations. The landscape shown below, Bunatrahir Bay Study, is by Christie Taylor done during her 5 week fellowship in Ballycastle, Mayo County, Ireland. Other artists – Petra Bernstein, Scot Dolby, Lois Engberg, Linda Epstein, Jim Rehak, Fred Sprock, Nancy Richards West – will be showing with Lynne Lockhart and Kirk McBride offering a sneak peak of their April show. Erick Sahler will be here for the opening with his work. Rule #1 (No Ketchup) is a new take on Thrashers French Fries.

November Featured Artists – Lois & Kathryn Engberg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many of our patrons will remember the first time we showed Katie Engberg along with her mother, Lois, and her grandmother, Barbara Beauchamp in 2013. Katie was then in her second year at Grand Central Academy in New York. Since graduating in 2016 she is now an instructor at this renown atelier school continuing to teach the classical traditions she learned under her mentor, Jacob Collins. In November Katie and Lois will be featured once again. This fall they returned from a stay in Lucca, Italy where Katie taught two drawing workshops and Lois enjoyed painting the beauty of the area.

This show will reinforce the influence art has on both mother and daughter. Katie will show her development as a talented figure artist and Lois will offer images from her stay in Italy along with her classic still life paintings.

October’s Featured Artist – Carroll Klingelhofer

Bishop’s Stock is often a place that draws artists as they visit the area. Several years ago Carroll Klingelhofer stopped by with the hope of meeting my husband. You see, they are both graduates of Washington & Lee University and fraternity brothers with just a few years between their time in Lexington, Virginia. Introduction made then our conversation moved to Carroll’s work as a representational painter. Shortly after this visit Carroll returned with paintings for us to display and we started talking about a featured show. That show will open on October 6. Included in the show will be landscapes from throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Carroll is a practicing attorney, but he finds himself at his easel almost everyday. His profession does not limit his commitment and time devoted to study, visits to museums and shows, talking with other artists and taking workshops. This is how he has become a quality artist with a talent for capturing the realism nature offers. The show includes changes of season and nocturnal settings.
