“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!
This week, Bryan Noll’s Lightbath will be providing music for “Wine Down Friday” at Gallery 50. Originally from Waynesboro, Noll is now a composer, producer and performer based out of Brooklyn. His blend of cosmic and meditative rhythms should serve as the perfect backdrop for an evening of wine, light refreshments and an assortment of impressive artwork. Noll is set to begin the entertainment at 5:00 p.m.

About the New Show…
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!
Patric Schlee returns to 42 West ARTS on Friday night to play flute and drums between the hours of 5:00 and 8:00.
The Co-Op is also excited to announce the addition of its newest member, jewelry artisan, Jennifer Caldwell. In the years since she began creating jewelry as a teenager, Caldwell has developed a passion for transforming silver sheet metal and wire into interesting shapes and designs. She also adds gems and carbochons to her work for the purpose of color and effect.
Anyone visiting 42 West ARTS in the coming weeks is encouraged to look for Caldwell’s collection of pendants, chains, rings, earrings and bracelets.
Live Music at 42 West Arts
42 West Arts member, Tom McFarland will be performing jazz and folk songs while singing and playing the guitar Saturday March 29th from 1:00 – 3:00.
Come in and join us for a relaxing afternoon with music, wine and light refreshments.
Tom is a local teacher and artist who has been playing music for many years. He performs sometimes as a fifth member of the Cumberland Valley School of Music Jazz Quartet.
with Artist Donna Bingaman as the instructor.
Create your own still life oil painting from arranged still life setups, “Grapes and Red Wine,” “Porcelain Dolls,” “Silver Pot and Apples.”
This workshop will use still life as a means to study light, an artist’s greatest gift. Students will paint from “warm” studio light on canvases, with emphasis on composition, drawing and value. The purpose is to understand the difference between the two different temperatures of light and the effect it has on color relationships. Students of all levels will find these studies valuable no matter what subject matter they may ultimately wish to pursue.
