“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 continues with another special edition of “Wine Down Friday!” Our 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 14, 5 – 8 pm
This week, for “Wine Down Friday,” Gallery 50 welcomes the Americana sound of The Rolling Coyotes featuring finely-tuned harmonies, textured instrumentation, good humor and originality. This acoustic-based trio will entertain the audience with a variety of folk, swing, jazz, country and rock songs. The Rolling Coyotes feature Steve Warner on guitar/ukelele/harmonica, Andy Mosholder on bass/cello and Elliot Simon on piano/accordian/bass.
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 Is March’s Second “Featured Artist” at Gallery 50
The colorful, impressionistic paintings of Steven Nevada were featured in last week’s “Meet the Artist” special event at Gallery 50. 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. According to Nevada, “…all life is art.” We looks forward to showing and discussing his work with Gallery 50 visitors.
Along with Holsmann’s and Nevada’s works in Gallery 50, are more than 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. All items offer the opportunity to shop locally for one-of-a-kind, professionally crafted gifts!
