July Featured Artist – Maurice Sevigny

To bring summer colors to Bishop’s Stock we are featuring paintings and jewelry by Maurice Sevigny in July. Maurice is retired from his distinguished career in fine arts education (The University of Arizona, University of Texas at Austin, Bowling Green University and Western Kentucky University) but retirement has given him more time to maintain his active visual arts and jewelry studios in both Tucson, Arizona (November to June) and at his summer/fall residence in Salisbury. Travel inspires his work. He is known for his very colorful mixed media adaptations of figurative and landscape images. His art inspires his “one-of-a-kind” jewelry designs that mix beading materials from multiple cultures. At the opening on July 6, Maurice will have a lovely selection of his unique designs as he will on Saturday, July 21 as our Artist-in-Residence. Our First Friday reception is from 5 until 8 with tastings of wine from South Africa. Check Maurice’s website to find out more about his work in fine arts.

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 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.

April is “Lynne Lockhart and Kirk McBride Month” at Bishop’s Stock. There is no better way to welcome the change of season than paintings coming out of Lynne’s and Kirk’s studios. Their show always features scenes from their travels which recently included Cuba and Texas. Lynne is also showing a selection of Assateague ponies, farm and woodland animals. Kirk takes our patrons to New York and Havana finding classic cars in his travels. View the paintings on www.facebook.com/BishopsStock. The opening reception is Friday, April 6 from 5 until 8 when we will be tasting California wines.

Opening Reception for Stan Sperlak

 

Pastel Artist, Stan Sperlak, will be featured in the front gallery at Bishop’s Stock during December and January.

 

December Featured Artist – Stan Sperlak

 

 

 

 

 

Marshes and beaches along the Atlantic coast consistently appear in Stan’s pastels. In this show he uses both brilliant and tonal saturated color for both plein air and studio paintings. Stan captures the pureness of nature’s color values by layering intensely pigmented pastels. He achieves texture from both the paper he selects and the way he uses the pastels. You see movement of the wind in short energetic strokes. Tranquility of the ocean you see in long horizontal bands of color. The atmospheric relationship between land or sea and sky is predominant in all of Stan’s work. Undoubtedly, Stan’s pastels clearly represent his emotional connection to the beauty of this region. Everyday Stan lives his love of the outdoors through his painting, a busy landscape business in Cape May Court House, NJ and life on Crow Creek Farm. As a master teacher, Stan shares his artistic vision and skills in workshops all over the world.
