Opening Reception for Lois Engberg & Carole Boggemann Peirson

June’s Featured Artists – Lois Engberg & Carole Boggemann Peirson

One of the things we like to do at Bishop’s Stock is pairing
artists together for a featured show. Our Featured Artists in June, Lois
Engberg
and Carole Boggemann Peirson, were last featured in 2017.
Carole showed with Barb Mowery and Lois showed with her daughter, Katie. Since
Lois and Carole have traveled together and often find time to paint together,
they are a perfect “pairing.” Lois is known for her classic “Old
Master” still life paintings of seasonal flowers taken right from her
garden but she also follows her love of nature’s bounty as a plein air and
studio artist. Elements of Eastern Shore life fill her paintings. After being
an accomplished still life artist Carole was introduced to plein air painting
in 2008 and she has not stopped painting the beauty of nature. She is
fascinated by light and hidden elements revealed in landscapes, county roads,
dunes and marshes. Lois and Carole will fill the gallery with light and color.
The opening reception is First Friday, June 7 from 5 until 8. We will
offer wines from Spain for tasting.

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.

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.

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.

7th Annual Studio Sweep Sale Continues

During January our customers can still find great artwork at wonderful prices. Bishop’s Stock’s artists have cleaned out their studios to offer art lovers a chance to add to their collections 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 the month 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.
