Featured Artist in November – C. Keith Whitelock

To start our 17th year
Bishop’s Stock will feature the work of C. Keith Whitelock in November.
As a native of Somerset County, Whitelock never tires of Eastern Shore
landscapes and his commitment to preserving the area’s culture. Those who know
his work know his favorite subjects are the weathered working boats and
decaying derelicts that so often accent the surrounding marsh and harbors.
Working in watercolors, oils, and occasionally acrylics, Whitelock’s attention
to detail presents a realistic image of a rapidly disappearing lifestyle. His
paintings always have a story that he enjoys sharing

Opening Reception for Beverly Perdue

 

Come meet Beverly Perdue AWS TWSA to hear about the commission she completed for the Franklin Perdue Museum at SSU. Her show, Oil and Water, features paintings from her travels

August Featured Artist – Beverly Perdue AWS TWSA

Our featured artist for August is Beverly Perdue AWS, TWSA, a native of Salisbury who now lives in suburban Richmond, Virginia . Over the years Beverly has been a regular visitor to Bishop’s Stock while her mother, Madeline Perdue was still alive. Mrs. Perdue grew up on a farm outside of Snow Hill and was a contemporary of many in the Snow Hill area. She liked to “catch up” by visiting the gallery. These visits were always enjoyable but they also made me aware of Beverly’s artistic talent. She has shown with us before but now as our featured artist we will see a cross section of her work in watercolor and oil. Beverly is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society and the Transparent Watercolor Society of America and she now works in oil to expand her growth as an artist. In this show titled Oil and Water Beverly will debut a recent oil painting she created of her Grandmother, Pearl Perdue standing in front of a chicken house she helped build in 1920. This iconic scene, created from an old photograph, represents the beginning of Perdue Farms and will be installed in the Franklin Perdue Museum at the Perdue School of Business at Salisbury University in 2020.

Opening Reception for C. Keith Whitelock

 

Our featured artist in June is C. Keith Whitelock. Come visit with him and see his latest work.

June Featured Artist – C. Keith Whitelock

When June arrives we all seem to turn our thoughts to the water that surrounds us so it seems the perfect time to feature the work of  C. Keith Whitelock, a well-known marine artist.  This  Eastern Shore native captures working boats in the open bay, bay side marshes,  and waterfront docks. The fine details in Whitelock’s realistic images  are of a rapidly disappearing lifestyle of working boats, small villages and derelict structures. It is always exciting to see what part of the vanishing landscape he has found to paint. This year he has returned to oil and acrylic for a number of paintings.  The opening reception is Friday, June 2 from 5 until 8. Whitelock will also be our Artist-in-Residence on Saturday, June 17.

April is one of our favorite months at Bishop’s Stock with spring colors, warmer days and best of all, new work by Lynne Lockhart and Kirk McBride.  While we feature Lockhart’s and McBride’s work all year, this is when patrons get to see an extensive show of their latest paintings. The work in the show includes Lynne’s wonderful animals in their natural setting and Kirk’s city and small town architecture, landscapes, and working boats. As our patrons know Lockhart captures animal behaviors and attitudes wherever she catches her subjects. McBride is known for his expertise in using light and shadows to capture atmospheric influences on his subjects. Two of Lockhart’s paintings in the show have been submitted to the Society of Animal Artists for their annual show that tours the country. She is a Signature Member of this international organization. McBride is a Signature Member of the Mid Atlantic Plein Air Painters and also a Signature Member of the American Society of Marine Artists. All paintings in the show may be viewed in albums at http://www.facebook/BishopsStock.
