“Destination ARTS!” activities continue in Waynesboro with live music every weekend and events and artist demonstrations scheduled at Gallery 50 and 42 West ARTS Co-Op. The Ceramic Arts Center of Waynesboro and The Contemporary School of the Arts & Gallery will also be open with art and pottery for sale and art classes available. All galleries are open each week from Thursday through Sunday.
The month of February closes with a very special edition of “Wine Down Friday,” when a new, internationally-themed art show opens at Gallery 50, as paintings and photographs depicting scenes from countries such as Germany, Iceland and the Czech Republic are unveiled. Friday night is the Opening Reception!
Singer-guitarist Jon Ingels will provide music for the occasion.Jon performs a mixture of Bluegrass, Country and Rock for your enjoyment from 5 – 8 pm.
The new show, titled “Travel ~ Through the Artist’s Eye,” is highlighted by the work of South African painter, Eric Holsmann. Known throughout the world for his illustrations of cityscapes in Pretoria, Holsmann has been honored by that city’s art museum with a retrospective exhibition spanning 25 years. Impressed by the photos his Pennsylvania-born wife took of Waynesboro, he was inspired to capture the charm of our Main Street’s buildings on canvas. These original oil paintings are at Gallery 50 for viewing and sale beginning February 28.
On the afternoon of Saturday, March 1, artist Tom Tholen will demonstrate the drawing of a costumed model on toned paper from 2:00 – 4:00 at 42 West ARTS Co-Op. A former resident of Salt Lake City, UT, Tholen has carved out a successful career of more than 25 years, with combined experience in storyboard, layout and concept work. He now lives in Chambersburg.
