Friday, August 7th 5:00-7:00 Linda Hollett Live Demonstration

VMFA Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
Taking advantage of the beautiful weather today in Richmond, artist and VMFA docent Linda Hollett-Bazouzi paints our sculpture garden “en plein air”, a technique of painting outside to capture the natural light and movement of a place as it unfolds before the artist. Popular from the mid-19th century onward by many artists, including painters seen in our collection such as Monet and Pissarro. Where would you set up your easel on a day like today?

On Friday August 7th from 5:00pm - 7:30pm Linda Hollett will be here at the Cabell Gallery of Fine Art doing a live demo and sharing a selection of her recent plein air works! This show is a part of the First Fridays Lexington Downtown show series, so be sure to also visit Artists in Cahoots, Lexington VA and Nelson Gallery as you work your way down Washington St!

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.
