Friday: Rail Walk Studios & Gallery hosting reception for ‘Flowing 2’

Rail Walk Studios & Gallery is hosting “Flowing 2: An Exhibit of Watercolor Art.” Reception for the show will be held Friday, May 11 5:30-7:30 p.m. Light refreshments provided. The public is invited to attend the free event.

Artists in this exhibit were invited by Rail Walk artist Marietta Foster Smith, after they participated in her recent workshop on using watercolor paint with pen & ink. The exhibit will be in the main gallery of Rail Walk Studios & Gallery now through Saturday, May 26. The gallery is free and open to the public Thursdays through Saturdays 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at 409-413 N Lee St.

One wall in the show is a collection of watercolor, pen & ink renderings of chickens painted during the workshop. The artists decided to include the grouping after observing the personal differences in the works though they were painted at the same time from the same demonstration. Smith says of the grouping: “Artists see things differently and create art by adding their own sensibilities even if they aren’t trying to. This is a good example of that concept. Upon inspection, you will see that each artist put themselves into the art and produced their own way of seeing the chickens.”

The other works in this exhibit are by workshop participants working on their own and creating their own works of art. Work by Marietta Smith is included along with Sonja Goodman, Jean Harrington, Deena Lanning, Sandy Miller, Karen Morgan, Jan Pruette, Sue Rink and Pat Wagoner. Studios of all the Rail Walk artists will be available to view during the reception and exhibit. More information is available at www.railwalkgallery.com or by calling 704-469-2781.
