M. Stephen Doherty. You have heard his name, now see his art!

IMG_8549.jpg

The Cabell Gallery is especially excited to be able to bring you the work of an old friend, Steve Doherty. Does the name sound familiar? If you have read about art in the past 30 years you have probably read his work. Steve has been in the center of American art and artists for decades. His story goes like this...He majored in art at Knox College in Galesburg, IL and graduated summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa. He then earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in printmaking from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY; taught art in public schools, a community college, and at Knox; worked in the marketing department of a company that manufactured screen printing art supplies; and then moved to a suburb of New York City.

For 31 years, he was the editor of American Artist magazine and launched three other art magazines: Watercolor, Drawing, and Workshop. In 2011, he became Editor-in-Chief of PleinAir magazine and moved to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He continues to edit PleinAir, participate in plein air events, judge art shows, teach workshops, exhibit paintings, and give lectures. I hesitate to say that Steve "wrote the book" on painting...but he kinda did! He has recently had a book published, "The Art of Plein Air Painting: An Essential Guide to Materials, Concepts, and Techniques for Painting Outdoors."

Stephen will be the featured artist for August with his opening reception (coinciding with the First Friday Art Walk) from 5:00-7:30pm on Friday August 3rd at the Cabell Gallery in downtown Lexington. Everyone is invited! If you aren't able to join us on 8/3, make sure you come by the gallery at some point in August. His work will be featured through the end of the month.

New artist show opening July 3 featuring Tom Tartaglino

 

Tom Tartaglino: Currently I paint real images. For the most part, they are from real life. I love real life. These works are observances of life. One gets to be a pretty good observer when holding a paint brush. There is a realism about today that I am trying to achieve in my paintings. It is not just the image but the psychology of the image. Good painting should hit you on levels beyond the image. That is my goal.

New Artists show July 3, Featuring Amy Donahue

 

Amy Donahue:  “Everywhere I travel scenes beg to be painted. Light and vivid color captivate me. Of course God creates the most vibrant and dynamic colors and patterns–even so, I enjoy paying homage to His designs by rendering 2D versions of what I see. I love to paint the details of what I see: the contrasts in the lights and darks and the vibrancy of the world. The heavens truly tell the glory of God (Psalm 19:1) much more effectually than my paint. They are a marvelous mystery, but still I am constantly compelled to capture them on canvas.”

Introducing Curney Nuffer: Our Artist of the Month for February

Introducing Curney Nuffer: Our Artist of the Month for February

On February 6th, during the Lexington Gallery Walk, Curney Nuffer will be doing a live demonstration of a still life oil painting. The event itself runs from 5pm until around 7pm, and Curney's demonstration will begin at 6pm. What will make this event unique, is Curney's single use of the palette knife to create the painting.

After this event, Curney's paintings will remain on "show" through the month of February. Bring out your partners, bring out your friends... and enjoy a winter evening out surrounded by incredible art.

A bit about Curney Nuffer...

Curney Nuffer was born in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in 1951. He was educated at East Tennessee University and later relocated to Richmond where he began his art education initially through the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Studio School and Virginia Commonwealth University.

His studio is located at The Fulton Hill Studios in Richmond and he also teaches classes locally. His art workshops in England, Italy and Portugal are popular travel-and-paint experiences for artists who want to enjoy plein air as well as still life painting in an art-rich environment.
