One of the things we like to do at Bishop's Stock is pairing artists together for a featured show. Our Featured Artists in June, Lois Engberg and Carole Boggemann Peirson, were last featured in 2017. Carole showed with Barb Mowery and Lois showed with her daughter, Katie. Since Lois and Carole have traveled together and often find time to paint together, they are a perfect "pairing." Lois is known for her classic "Old Master" still life paintings of seasonal flowers taken right from her garden but she also follows her love of nature's bounty as a plein air and studio artist. Elements of Eastern Shore life fill her paintings. After being an accomplished still life artist Carole was introduced to plein air painting in 2008 and she has not stopped painting the beauty of nature. She is fascinated by light and hidden elements revealed in landscapes, county roads, dunes and marshes. Lois and Carole will fill the gallery with light and color. The opening reception is First Friday, June 7 from 5 until 8. We will offer wines from Spain for tasting.
On First Friday Bryan Coates will be in the gallery signing copies of the Spring 2019 Edition of Ghostlight, The Magazine of Terror. His first published short story, The World's Most Uncomfortable Waiting Room Chair, was published in the annual digest printed by the Great Lakes Association of Horror Writers. The anthology contains 15 horror and dark fiction and 11 poems from new and established authors. Read the review on Amazon to find out more about the publication. Copies will be available for sale.
