Nelson Fine Art Center on Facebook
Tuesday, August 4, 2009
Opening First Friday, August 7 is "House Favourites" featuring a sampling of new art by Paul Bishop, Jamie Burns, Charlesey Charleton, Joan Elliott, Jerry Greer, Rick Jelovsek, Alex and Lisa LaPella, Val Lyle, Kate Pierce, Larry Thacker, and Blair White. These artists represent a broad range of media, so expect to see a wide array of art including drawing, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography, and pottery. This group has had ties to Nelson Fine Art for many years in many ways. Paul and Jerry have had gallery spaces in this gallery for more than 7 years and have been in shows here for 8 years. Jamie worked here during the final semester of her BFA at Milligan College and then stayed on for another 2 years till she began her Masters. Charlesey Charleton has been part of several print making shows during her MFA at ETSU. Joan also was exhibited in several painting shows during her BFA career at ETSU as well holding an internship here during that time. Rick Jelovsek has been in several photography shows here over the past 5 years. Alex and Lisa LaPella are newcomers having only been in this gallery for a couple of months. Kate Pierce's photography has been exhibited here for the past 2 years, Val Lyle's pastels, oils, and sculptures have been shown here for 2 years but she is well represented in galleries and exhibits all over. Blair White has worked in this gallery for the past 3+ years and has been showing and selling his wearable jewelry art since his MFA several years ago. Come out from 7-9 p.m. we'll have wine, punch, as well as foods from Earth Fare.
