PAINT OUT EXHIBITION
MAY 13 – JUNE 17
The weather held and the Plein Air painters came out to paint in and around Burnsville during the annual event, May 13. Painters ventured out — some stayed in town and others went off the beaten path in search of that perfect barn, field or back porch. And all captured the beauty and timelessness of this region on canvas, panel, and paper now showcased in the gallery
First place award went to Jeremy Sams for his acrylic, Home Away From Home, second to Waiting for the Sun, an oil by Kathie Wheeler and third place to Mike Alonzo’s Colonial Inn. This year’s Honorable Mention was garnered by Brian Koontz’ Along the Cane River. Returning juror John Mac Kah again reiterated his teaching tenet in his Asheville classes—the 4 P’s—Placement, Proportion, Plane, and Perspective Keeping that in mind, Charlotte Thomason, Claire Thomason, and Ana Wassinger all won student awards for their efforts. Check out the winning paintings on the Paint Out Event page.
Be sure to stop by the gallery and see how others view Yancey County—all in brilliant oranges and pinks, subtle greens and browns, and vibrant blues.
