Show Opening, DOUBLE VISION: Plein Air Perspectives of Fearrington Village

The Roost at Fearrington Village, 7x9½" watercolor (SOLD)
If you haven’t visited my Carolina Watercolors show on view at The Granary Restaurant Gallery in Fearrington Village, I encourage you to stop by. When I’m not painting with plein air painting buddy Robert Rigsby, my ideal afternoon at Fearrington includes a stop outside the white fences to paint “the Belties,” the Village’s beloved mascot cows, lunch (or at minimum a chai latte) at The Goat, a friendly, casual coffee and wine shop, then an hour or more of shopping Dovecote, a lovely upscale home and garden shop whose buyer’s taste is incomparable. Either lunch or dinner at The Granary Restaurant is worth the drive itself.
This Thursday, June 6, the watercolors come down and that evening at 6:00, Robert Rigsby and I will be there to open our exhibition, DOUBLE VISION: Plein Air Perspectives of Fearrington Village. Since last fall, the two of us have made many trips to the quaint Village to paint views of the landscape. Painting at our easels in oils, and standing side by side at times, we’ve come away with eleven sets of plein air paintings. The show focuses not only on Fearrington Village, it’s about how differently two artists might interpret the same view.
