Studio Sweep Sale

2011 Studio Sweep Sale

7th Annual Studio Sweep Sale

Each December Bishop’s Stock’s artists clean out their studios to offer art lovers a chance to add to their collections or find the perfect gift 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 December and January 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.

Featured Artist in November – Scot Dolby

img_1104landscape

November is the month Bishop’s Stock celebrates the beginning of a new year on Green Street. It is hard to believe we have been open 13 years and have staged 140 shows and 13 Paint Snow Hill events. Some things have changed. Doug Fisher is our resident artist two days a week and our shelves now stock wine instead of fine craft. What hasn’t changed is the amazing talent we  represent. Our November featured artist has been showing with us from Day 1. Scot Dolby was at that time a favorite teacher for Snow Hill students with many coming to see his work. Fast forward and Scot (and his wife Jean) are retired, enjoying being near their daughters and not being “retiring” at all. Scot’s work is known to fall into two categories – vast landscapes (local and some far away) and fish (a fly fisherman’s dream.) Scot also has a number of collectors of his mixed media paintings on cigar box tops.

                        New Work by Gallery Artists

March is a great time to show new work by our artists. Some of the paintings are fresh off the easel while others were done in recent months. It is always interesting to see what imagery and subjects come off their canvases and paper. Some of our artists stay with the same medium and representational subjects while others explore different techniques and vary what they want to paint. It is always refreshing to see what direction they take. Included in the show are Leslie Belloso, Carole Boggemann Peirson, Scot Dolby, Lynne Lockhart, Kirk McBride, Jim Rehak, Fred Sprock, Roxanne Weidele and Nancy West.
