“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 March begins with a very special edition of “Wine Down Friday!” A new, internationally-themed art show has opened at Gallery 50, as paintings and photographs depicting scenes from countries such as Germany, Iceland and the Czech Republic are on display. You can meet friends and enjoy the music as well!
Friday, March 7, 5 – 8 pm
– Tim Franklin (vocals and guitar) is a nomadic singer/songwriter/guitarist and frontman for the Seattle chamber rock band Pillow Army. His songs are eclectic, but anchored in rock music; particularly leaning toward the folk-alternative rock sound. As a solo performer, he utilizes effects, looping, and percussive strumming techniques to create a surprisingly full sound.
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.
Steven Nevada Provides March’s “Meet the Artist” Opportunity at Gallery 50
The colorful, impressionistic paintings of Steven Nevada will be featured in a “Meet the Artist” special event at Gallery 50, located at 50 West Main Street in Waynesboro from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 8. Nevada, who hails from Berkeley, CA, now has a home and studio in New Oxford. His original paintings are displayed in many galleries throughout the United States, including Gallery 50. Nevada is best known for his dreamy, romantic landscapes, magnificent florals and garden scenes that are reminiscent of the works done by French Impressionists. For the “Meet the Artist” occasion, he will offer six additional paintings available for sale that day only at Gallery 50. According to Nevada, “…all life is art.” He looks forward to meeting and discussing his work with Gallery 50 visitors on March 8.
Along with Nevada’s works in Gallery 50, are more 200 paintings, prints and photographs, as well as more than 600 unique gift items, including autographed children’s books, signed books of non-fiction and historical fiction, sculptures, pottery and hand-crafted jewelry.
