November 17, 2016 – The annual “Small Works Show” of the Judith Hale Gallery and Solvang Antiques opens Nov. 27. A reception for the artists is open to the public from 12-4 p.m. on Nov. 28.
Opening the show on Nov. 28 will be Dirk Foslien and Nancy Phelps, two of the gallery’s most popular oil painters, to demonstrate their painting styles. Foslien was trained in the techniques of the Old Masters when he studied at the Muse Academy in Baltimore, MD, then began his career as a fine art painter.
More recently he has undertaken figurative work, which has just begun to be shown. Joining Foslien for the opening is painter Nancy Phelps, a local artist taking a more impressionistic approach. Phelps is widely recognized for the extensive work that she has done on the murals in Lompoc.
The demonstration schedule continues with oil painter Sheryl Knight on Dec. 5, oil and pastel painter Joe Mancuso together with sculptor Dee Prater on Dec. 12, and stone carver Lou Mariani on Dec. 19.
The works of all the gallery artists will be exhibited for this seasonal opening. New works will be on display by Howard Carr, Betty Carr, Vicki Catapano, Vic Fisher and more.
