Waterworks ~ Plein Aire oil or acrylic paintings by Brett LaGue

The Gallery @ Barr Photographics, 10:00 AM-6:00 PM

The Gallery @ Barr Photographics announces the fall installment of the Corner Gallery’s 2019 exhibition series with a collection of plein aire oil or acrylic works entitled "Waterworks” by Fincastle, Virginia, artist, Bret LaGue.

In his artist’s statement, Bret reveals, “Each of my paintings I desire to be a combination, of its creative record, the story of its visual content and an interaction between both of these elements and the viewer. Understanding that individuals viewing an artwork – no matter how specific in detail – will reinterpret the artist’s intention as they feel it, I strive to invite that reinterpretation to make them a part of the work itself. This exhibit, “Waterworks”is a selection, primarily, of paintings done along rivers, streams, lakes and in the rain. The motion of water is always fascinating – to view and to paint.”

"Waterworks” will be celebrated with a reception for Bret LaGue, to which the public is cordially invited, on Friday, 25 October from 7 - 9:00 PM in The Gallery @ Barr Photographics, 152 E. Main Street, Abingdon, Virginia. " Waterworks” will hang, and be offered for sale, 01 October through 30, November 2019.   The Gallery @ Barr Photographics is housed in the Greenway Trigg Building, located in the heart of Abingdon’s main street historic district.
