‘Mook in Color’ Watercolor art exhibit at the Salisbury Business Center

Opening reception 6-8 p.m. Nov. 7

The Salisbury Business Center is hosting a new art exhibition featuring original watercolor art by local artist Mark (Mook) Brincefield. The exhibit, ‘Mook in Color’, will run from Nov. 4-Jan. 24 and is available for public viewing weekdays during business hours.

The opening reception for ‘Mook in Color’ is next Thursday at SBC, 301 S. Main St., and is free and open to the public. Live acoustic music provided by Tom Williams.

“Mook” is the nickname painter, sculptor, cartoonist and musician Mark Brincefield has gone by since he was a young adult. Over the past 30 years, Mook is a familiar component of the Salisbury Post newspaper as the Sunday editorial cartoonist. What we don’t see are the countless watercolor paintings, ranging from landscapes to barns to portraits.

When Mook is not drawing, you might find him slinging paint in his studio, listening to his favorite musicians (Bob Dylan,

Tom Waits, Leon Russell, Lou Reed, Ray Charles, and more), many depicted in his larger watercolors, which also include musicians Muddy Waters, Fats Domino, Miles Davis, Chubby Checker and Ray Charles, to name just a few.

Brincefield expanded from cartoonist to watercolorist in 1994. His collection, and this exhibit at the Salisbury Business Center, includes landscapes, barns, portraits and still-life.
