The Presence of Water ~ Watercolor Paintings by Thelma Blake
The Gallery @ Barr Photographics, 10:00 AM-6:00 PM
The Gallery @ Barr Photographics announces the summer installment of the CornerGallery’s 2019 exhibition series with a collection of watercolor floral and still life works entitled "Presence of Water” by Abingdon, Virginia artist, Thelma Blake.
In her artist’s statement, Thelma reveals, “I am drawn to the media of watercolor for its fluidity on paper and the magical presence as it moves about on paper. Sometimes I force the paint to do what I want and can see in my mind and other times, I allow it to do what it wants to do, always watching for those “happy accidents” to develop.”
"Presence of Water” will be celebrated with a reception and demonstration of technique by Thelma Blake, to which the public is cordially invited, on Friday, 14 June from 7 - 9:00 PM in The Gallery @ Barr Photographics, 152 E. Main Street, Abingdon, Virginia. "Progression!” will hang, and be offered for sale, 01 June through 31, July 2019. The Gallery @ Barr Photographics is housed in the Greenway Trigg Building, located in the heart of Abingdon’s main street historic district.
