Oil Paint

July Exhibit: Fredericksburg-All Around the Town by Kathleen Walsh

Rappahannock-Blue_web PONSHOP studio is pleased to present Fredericksburg-All Around the Town a solo exhibition of works by local artist Kathleen Walsh.  From July 11 – July 31 Walsh’s oil paintings will be on view at PONSHOP studio with an opening reception on July 11 from 6-10 pm.

Walsh’s works reveal a dialogue between an artist and her surroundings. Her instinctual layering of paint and gestural marks portray a poetic back-and-forth with nature. Whether Walsh paints plein air or in-studio, her works emphasize an immediacy or nowness, which furthermore describes her way for life. With this body of work, viewers witness an indulgence of the moment.

Exhibition Dates: July 11-31, 2014

Opening Reception: Friday, July 11 from 6-10pm

Opening Reception: October Group Show

Dueker_webFriday, October 4 was the opening reception of our Group Show featuring the work of Baltimore-based painter, Ashleigh Dueker.  Below are photos from that evening.  Thanks to all our fans who came out for the night and a big "thank you" to Ashleigh and her family for making the trek down from Baltimore.  October's Group show runs through October 27. Ashleigh's "Windows" series reflects upon her experiences over the past years working as a Peace Corps volunteer in Mali, West Africa and her subsequent transition back to life in the United States.  The three works she's contributed to the October show, "An Unfinished Life", "Sojourn", and "Home" explore these recent experiences, touching on themes such as emotional closure, spirituality, and the inherent relationship that we create with our environment.
