July Featured Artist – Maurice Sevigny

To bring summer colors to Bishop’s Stock we are featuring paintings and jewelry by Maurice Sevigny in July. Maurice is retired from his distinguished career in fine arts education (The University of Arizona, University of Texas at Austin, Bowling Green University and Western Kentucky University) but retirement has given him more time to maintain his active visual arts and jewelry studios in both Tucson, Arizona (November to June) and at his summer/fall residence in Salisbury. Travel inspires his work. He is known for his very colorful mixed media adaptations of figurative and landscape images. His art inspires his “one-of-a-kind” jewelry designs that mix beading materials from multiple cultures. At the opening on July 6, Maurice will have a lovely selection of his unique designs as he will on Saturday, July 21 as our Artist-in-Residence. Our First Friday reception is from 5 until 8 with tastings of wine from South Africa. Check Maurice’s website to find out more about his work in fine arts.

February is the perfect time to welcome colorful, bright paintings for our annual show of Winter Abstracts. The positive effect this change of media and painting styles is the perfect cure for cabin fever.

Some works suggest imagery while others are totally non-objective. So far artists included in the show are Petra Bernstein, John Cleary, Abbi Custis, Kathy Daywalt, Scot Dolby, Angela Herbert-Hodges, Anne Holland, Nancy Mysak, and Aina Nergarrd-Nammack.

“Images of Summer Light”

Featured in July

Each summer Bishop’s Stock features artists who do not regularly show throughout the year. Many of these talented artists have connected with us through Paint Snow Hill, our abstract show or just during their stays on the Eastern Shore. In July we are featuring paintings by Jan Crooker. Those who have seen her paintings during Paint Snow Hill will recognize her love of light and color. She is calling her show “Images of Summer Light” with all of the paintings reflecting light we experience during long, lazy summer days.
