Friday, March 21, 5 – 8 pm
This week, arts enthusiasts are in for a treat at “Wine Down Friday,” Gallery 50, as the popular trio known as Lucky Punk performs a special “stripped down almost acoustic set,” beginning at 5:00. Guests are invited to come find out why Wayne Driscoll, Brian Foster and Karl Kart have developed quite a following in Franklin County, while also enjoying the wine, light refreshments and artwork that highlight each “Wine Down Friday.”

About the New Show…

Gallery 50 presents 600x350.jpgThe 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 EricBolsmannillustrations 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

Steve NevadaThe 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.
