Opening reception for Campagna exhibit at Rail Walk tomorrow

During the month of May the Rail Walk Gallery, 409 N. Lee St., will host an exhibit of the Campagna Society of Artists.
The title of the exhibition is “Colore Naturale” and will display works representing the colors of nature.
The name Campagna came from an area where artists worked for years in the mountains and the countryside around Rome. Visitors to almost any museum may find sketches from the 19th century whose subjects contain some element in the Campagna style.

This group was started by Walter Stanford and Lin Barnhardt, and in the words of the artists, “grew out of lone studios into a fellowship of accomplished, working, and exhibiting professional artists — framed with the mutual delights of friendship.
“The Society started with lunch, breaking bread together, and this fellowship continues as the primary focus of the group. In those early lunches, we reflected on the history of art-making in personal terms and shared experience, always searching for new insights.
“Exploratory conversation and communication built confidence and courage to further than lunch. We did not have a particular agenda in image or method, but rather a desire for fellowship. We always shared and exchanged information of technical aspects art-making. As we grew in our exploration we began to reflect on artistic courage, relevance of what we were doing individually and what contribution we could make to the wider world of art-making.”

Artists for Rail Walk include Sharon Forthofer, Walter Stanford, Robert Crum, Regina Burchett, Lin Barnhardt, Marygrace Bianco, Paul Keysar, Mark Stephenson, James Taylor and Todd Baxter.
