Conversations in Paper & Thread, Carol Retsch-Bogart and Marguerite Jay Gignoux

Saturday, June 24 - Saturday, August 12, 2017
Sunday, June 25, 2 - 4 p.m., Summer Sips and Bites on the Porch Reception (more on this below!)

With color, texture and expression, artists Carol Retsch-Bogart and Marguerite Jay Gignoux collaborate to tell "stories" with visual sentences layered through materials and techniques.  Gignoux's screen printed text can be found embedded in the encaustic paintings of Retsch-Bogart.  "I cannot think well without thread and needle nearby.  There are moments when a vintage map, a neglected piece of sheet music, or maybe an old letter needs to be introduced to a wild drawing or to some fine handmade paper.  Perhaps some silk organza slips in.  Scissors get involved.  Glue and thread meet.  Stories are told."  says Gignoux.   Retsch-Bogart states, "...there is a surprising link between her work as a psychotherapist and as an artist.  Key to both is the appreciation of the many layers of life.  People's lives are textured by their past, present, and future with all the complicated nuances of feelings experiences, hopes and fears."

Judith Reese:  Looking Through My Eyes

Saturday, June 24 - Saturday, August 12, 2017
Sunday, June 25, 2 - 4 p.m., Summer Sips and Bites on the Porch Reception (more on this below!)

Much of the inspiration of Ms. Reese's work is from the ever-changing surroundings of her West Jefferson, NC home studio.  From her mountainside view of the New River, Reese can take nature's direction and successfully meld together unconventional combinations of watercolors and acrylics with previously dormant paper foundations.  The textured effect of her works seems to awaken the lifeless mediums of paint and paper and beckons the observer to "touch" and not just look.

Meredith Parker

Friday, May 26 - Friday, July 21, 2017

From a young age Parker has been fascinated with art.  Born and raised in a small NC town, she dreamed of working in the fashion industry.  After receiving a BFA in Fashion Marketing & Management at Savannah College of Art & Design, Parker embarked on a styling/visual merchandising journey.  Realizing that this was not her dream the door opened for her to leave her job and pursue her real passion, painting.  According to Parker, "Painting is precious to me. It's my worship, quiet time spent in the presence of the Father.  The majority of my pieces are created using only my hands, sponges or a palette knife."

With more than 35 years of internal computer work for Verizon Communications, John Vanderheyden retired to NC from Washington, DC because of the natural beauty of the state.  He was particularly drawn to the Piedmont because of the access to the mountains and the seashore. "As a landscape painter, there is more subject matter than I could possibly paint!"
