“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. You must see the NEW Gallery 20 East which is currently featuring the amazing WASHS Student Arts Show. 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 May continues with yet another special edition of “Wine Down Friday!” This Friday will be a special reception for acclaimed Baltimore artist, David Buckley Good. Come meet Mr. Good, view some of his work, try the wine and snacks, meet friends, view the art and enjoy the music!
This week, Baltimore-based artist, David Buckley Good, comes to Gallery 50 for a special reception. After beginning his career as a surrealist painter, Good gradually transitioned into the realm of traditional realism. He now teaches at The Schuler School of Fine Arts and The Mitchell School of Fine Arts in Baltimore, but from 5:00 to 8:00 on Friday night, he’ll be visiting with fellow artists and other members of the community in downtown Waynesboro. Wine and light refreshments will be served.
The duo of Pat McNamee and Erin Regan will be providing a soundtrack for the reception. Regan’s vocals and piano skills combined with McNamee’s flute and saxophone had entertained audiences during the initial “Destination ARTS!” initiative last summer. Both currently teach at the Cumberland Valley School of Music.
Over at the Artists Co-Op, “Wine Down Fridays” continue with the music of Patric Schlee beginning at 5:00.
David Buckley Good returns to Gallery 50 on Saturday to present a free demonstration of his oil painting techniques. Between the hours of 1:00 and 3:00 p.m., visitors will be able to witness the artist in action and ask him questions about his paint subjects, which range from European and American landscapes to still-life and the figure.
