February 24, 2015—(Solvang, Calif.) – What season could be better than Spring to take in the freshness of new works of art at Solvang Antiques Fine Art Gallery. The local hillsides are covered with the richness of color from flowers and grasses, and the artists are full of inspiration to make that beauty come alive in their paintings. The artists of Judith Hale Gallery represented here in Solvang Antiques have produced wonderful selections for your viewing. New acquisitions in our antique collection will also be presented.
Our Spring Art Show is featuring works by renowned artist Betty Carr. She has most recently been selected as a Master Artist in the American Impressionist Society (AISM signature). With confident strokes and a brilliantly executed composition, Carr applies her oils to canvas. Her magnificent painting “Evening Bouquet” will be shown along with other new works.
Carr received her Masters in Fine Art from San Jose State University and has taught painting and sculpture for many years. As a professional artist throughout her distinguished career she has traveled extensively gathering inspirational subject matter through her plein air painting experiences. Her painting, “Autumn Vineyards” won the prestigious award at the Sedona Plein Air Festival, as winning label for Alcantara Vineyard’s new Spring blend wine label. Her Painting “Morning at Jerome” will be the cover of a new book on Arizona and Arizona artists.
Along with Carr, new paintings will be presented by Nancy Phelps and Nancy Davidson. Phelps is locally well known for her oil and watercolor works, and has completed many of the murals of Lompoc. Davidson is an award winning Santa Barbara artist, whose works have been selected for Museum and other fine art showings. An avid horse lover, many of her paintings feature equine themes. Other artists include Marty Goldstein, Dirk Foslien and Vic Riesau.
Our Spring Art Show will open Saturday, March 21st and run through May. Please join us for this “Spring celebration of antique and fine art”!
