‘Works on Paper’ an annual exhibit of visual arts opens Saturday, April 1 at 10:00 a.m. The exhibit explores works by three artists creating paintings and drawings on a time honored raw product – paper. An unforgiving surface, around for centuries, paper reveals the artist’s proficiency in creating works of visual art.
Artist Paul Noël’s painting ‘Still Life with Onions‘ depicting onions resting on a cloth atop a reflective counter, is impeccably rendered and speaks to the level of detail and amount of time spent creating works featured in the exhibit.
Included in the exhibit are a selection of original paintings and drawings depicting an array of subjects from dramatic still life, to traditional landscapes and figurative studies by artists’ Paul J. Noël – still life and landscape paintings in watercolor, and figurative studies in graphite; Julianne Garvey – landscape paintings in watercolor and mixed media; and Randy Eckard – landscape paintings in watercolor.
The exhibit is open free of charge between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily through April 29, 2017. The public is invited to meet artists Paul J. Noël and Julianne Garvey at a reception at Richard Boyd Art Gallery on Saturday, April 1 between the hours of 12:00 noon and 3:00 p.m.
