Featured in September – From the Shore to the Rockies by Jim Rehak

Jim Rehak has shown his work at Bishop’s Stock since we opened in November 2003. Each month I have depended on Jim to bring 4-5 new paintings. He has had 5 solo shows and has been in every annual show featuring selected gallery artists. This has been an amazing amount of work he has shared with us and his paintings are always well received.

When Jim entered Maryland Institute of College of Art his studies were focused on comic illustration. His interest in oil painting soon emerged. After receiving his BFA his career took him from working in a gallery to being the art director for a commercial sign company. All along this road Jim’s enthusiasm for plein air landscape painting took hold and has since had him capturing every aspect of Delmarva landscape – fields, marshes, farms, beaches, rivers and bays. With growth in plein air events, Jim has found new challenges throughout the Mid-Atlantic landscape and his travels to the Rocky Mountains introduced a new scale to his paintings. Wherever he paints his palette is very bold and colorful capturing changing skies or a simple structure. This show includes paintings from Colorado as well as local images. All of his work is done in oil on panGo to Jim’s website to learn more about his work.

Opening Reception for March Artists

Come visit with Kate Cashman, John Eiseman, Jim Rehak, Fred Sprock and Nancy West and enjoy tastes of Franklin Tate Estates Chardonnay and Shiraz.

Featured Artists in March – Cashman, Eiseman, Rehak, Sprock & West

March gives an opportunity to see what gallery artists have been doing during the winter. This is also a great month to introduce the work of area artists who have not shown with us before. John Eiseman was a Paint Snow Hill participant who showed several paintings with us but he is recently retired and is now devoting his time doing studio and plein air work. He will show his representational landscapes. Kate Cashman was classically trained at Moore College of Art in Philadelphia and spent 20 years in interior design when she decided she wanted to have more time for painting and teaching. Kate’s paintings celebrate nature visually with vivid colors and bold interpretations of the world around her. It was very pleasing to discover she teaches at the Red Doors Community Center near Berlin for adults and children as young as 5 in workshops and series of classes.

To expand the mix of work Nancy Richards West, a regular exhibitor, recently explored figurative images with traditional “sumi-e” painting using a metallic palette. Nancy will show work that illustrates how talented she is with this ink and brush technique. Fred Sprock will show several paintings that gave him artistic satisfaction in trying new techniques and Jim Rehak will share several of his newest work. The opening reception is Friday, March 6, with wines from the Margaret River region in Western Australia.
