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.

Featured in July – Reflections on Water by Nancy Richards West

July 16-1 36x48

There is no better month than July to show the work of Nancy Richards West whose local seascapes and imagery say “Eastern Shore summer.” Nancy, a long time resident of Chincoteague, grew up in Western Pennsylvania in a creative family with art always a part of her life. Her passion for drawing and painting is reflected in her figurative work, wildlife art and plein air landscapes. In this show, Reflections on Water, Nancy has one of the largest paintings she has completed in her studio. Big Wave (36’x48′) is an amazing example of how Nancy “reads” the motion and energy of the breaking surf. Also included in the show are Sumi-e paintings which are done in the traditional Chinese brush stroke technique. Check Nancy West for Nancy’s background and artist statement.
