Murry Handler Upcoming Exhibit

Summer Landscape by Murry Handler
Murry Handler has exhibited widely- in solo and group shows; national and international juried competitions. His work is in numerous collections both corporate and private around the world.  Murry’s upcoming exhibit is close to home and offers a wonderful opportunity to view and purchase his latest work - a selection of his stunning watercolor paintings.

Rack-em by Murry Handler
Spontaneous and sparkling with lively color, Handler’s watercolors are akin to musical exercises. They keep the artist’s hand fluid, flexible and his mind nimble. Occasionally they become the studies for large canvas paintings. All watercolors are on heavy bonded archival paper. One of these brilliant, fun abstractions is sure to brighten any room.

The opening reception is Thursday, Nov. 6th 2014 at the Bold Building in Governors Village from 5-8 PM. There will be wine, hors d'oeuvres, and live music, good conversation alongside "different people, new people, new art, different art," in the words of Murry himself.

The Bold Building is located in Governor’s Village adjacent to the Governor’s Club at The

Helen Kotsher, Exhibit at Galloway Ridge thru Dec.

You are invited to explore the beautiful paintings of Fearrington Artist, Helen Kotsher...

Artist Statement: “I have tried to find the essence of the subject and explore it to its fullest in color and space. The unusual color combinations I achieve evoke memories and perceptions of time and places. 

To me the negative space is an integral part of the subject matter and I am always looking for innovative ways to integrate the two.  I also believe that less is more. Therefore, what I leave to the viewer’s imagination makes him or her a participant in the creative process,” Helen Kotsher

Kotsher works in oils, pastels and mixed media.  Stop by Galloway Ridge to see her paintings on exhibit now thru Dec. 

She will be participating in the Fearrington Artists Open Studio Tour in April. This is one studio stop you will not want to miss!
