Operation Fundstorm – Artists Supporting Hurricane Michael Relief

 

We are adding to Operation Fundstorm’s effort to help over 200 artists raise funds for Hurricane Michael relief. This effort was organized as an online auction called Operation Fundstorm and directed by a local Florida non-profit. The initial goal was to raise $20,000 but before check Operation Fundstorm’s auction closes on October 28 over $100,000 was raised! For the auction Kirk McBride, one of our artists, offered Shrimp Shack, a 12×16 he showed with us. We bought the painting for $600, the price he set. In return we want to pay this forward by maximizing Kirk’s donation. From now until November 24 we are taking bids for Shrimp Shack starting at $600. Our hope is to have a successful bidder take Shrimp Shack home with Bishop’s Stock sending another donation to Operation Fundstorm. Stop by to see the painting and place a bid or call or email the gallery.

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.

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.

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.
