Tim Donovan

Tim and Chris Donovan stopped by the gallery Monday evening on their way home to Lovettsville, Virginia returning from Nature Works Fine Art Exhibition in Tulsa Oklahoma. Nature Works is one of the three largest fine art shows in the eastern United States. Tim had an excellent show this year, his sales were outstanding. His work in egg tempera is something you'll want to stop in the gallery to see. He left us three new paintings. "Regal" is an extremely detailed painting of a bobcat. The bobcat has recently become reestablished in Indiana after many years of being extrapated.  Two smaller paintings are of a wolf and a prairie dog. Tim has participated in all of our Miniature Fine Art exhibitions and plans to have miniature work ready for the show this May. Stop in to see these fabulous new paintings before they too are sold.


Awesome Photographs

Friday night, the 12th, the Gallery held a reception for the Indianapolis based Riviera Camera Club Photographers.  The reception found several members present to answer questions.  The photography is just awesome with spectacular landscapes from Italy to Yellowstone in Winter, and wonderful close-ups of Classic Cars, and even some abstracts.  Just a delight!  Plan to see it if  you're able.  It's a great collection of work!


New Work by Luke Buck

Luke dropped by the gallery today to drop off some new art work.  "Two Legends" is a "plein air" piece that he painted down in North Carolina near Mt. Airy outside the town of Mayberry. He titled it "Two Legends" because " Pilot Mountain is a legend, as a matter of fact the Indians called it Pilot Mountain because you could see it from so far away that they  would use it as a beacon to guide them. The tobacco barn is another legend since the demise of the tobacco industry. You used to see these  everywhere,  and most are sitting derelict now and many have been torn down. This particular tobacco barn was a novelty because it was made out of cement blocks, most are usually made out of logs."

Mark Kelso Workshop

We just finished up an intense 2 day workshop with local wildlife artist Mark Kelso. Mark demonstrated a variety of techniques that he uses to create extremely detailed surface textures in his paintings. During the six hour session on Saturday, he took participants through his process from sketching basic geometric forms to creating a photorealistic eye and the fur coat of a wolf. Working in successive layers of thin washes and minute brushstrokes, Mark works from light to dark in a method similar to hatching.
