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.

Opening Reception for Lynne Lockhart & Kirk McBride

April Featured Artists – Lynne Lockhart & Kirk McBride

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Studio Sweep Sale Continues

sss-2016

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.

Each year the gallery schedule includes featured shows of new work by artists who have been with us since we opened in 2003. In September we will have new work by Jim Rehak. He is one of our artists whose work is constantly improving because his enthusiasm  for plein air painting has him finding interesting landscapes and seascapes as he travels around the area. Each new season and changing light are always his focus which he interprets with a bold, colorful  palette.
