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 August Bishop’s Stock will feature Maurice Sevigny. Maurice is one of a very few of our artists who paint as well as create 3-dimensional work. The show will feature colorful paintings and creative jewelry. His current body of work has been inspired by international travel and has grown out of digital experimentation using the computer software as a color enhancement and design distortion tool. Maurice is recognized for his very colorful adaptations of figurative, floral, abstract and landscape images which are his unique combinations of mixed media. His “One of a Kind” jewelry designs incorporate his keen sense of color and texture and represent unique combinations of beading that use multicultural beading sources. Check his website to learn more about his career in fine arts education.
