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.

Studio Sweep Sale

2011 Studio Sweep Sale

7th Annual Studio Sweep Sale

Each December Bishop’s Stock’s artists clean out their studios to offer art lovers a chance to add to their collections or find the perfect gift at great savings. For the artists this gives a chance to sell older work, the last of a series or paintings that just need to go! For those who appreciate local talent this means a great selection of oils, acrylics, watercolors and pastels – large and small. Most work is unframed but there is a small selection of paintings ready to hang plus a few frames to purchase.  The sale continues through December and January so there is plenty of time to leisurely search for that perfect find. During this time newer work by gallery artists is also displayed but not at reduced prices.

Each year the gallery schedule includes featured shows of new work by artists who have been with us since we opened in 2003. In September we will have new work by Jim Rehak. He is one of our artists whose work is constantly improving because his enthusiasm  for plein air painting has him finding interesting landscapes and seascapes as he travels around the area. Each new season and changing light are always his focus which he interprets with a bold, colorful  palette.

Plein Air Seascapes by Jim Rehak Featured in June

Jim Rehak has been showing with Bishop’s Stock since we opened on 2003. We show his work regularly but this is his second featured exhibit. Jim, a 10 year veteran of Paint Snow Hill, is almost exclusively a plein air painter. His palette is very bold and colorful. This show includes new paintings with a focus on seascapes along the coast. He has captured the changing sky and seasonal colors in the dunes and water. Jim is also a caricature artist known to summer visitors. The opening reception for Jim’s show is Friday, June 7 from 5-8. The work will be exhibited until July 2.
