Welcoming New Guests Artists for the Spring

We are happy to announce that we have some new talent here in the Rosemont Art Gallery!  This quarter we are welcoming a new full time artist – Andrea Burke – and also featuring three new Guest Artists – Linda Garden, Ron Griggs and Dee Holland!  Their artwork will be on display throughout the Winery until the end of Summer, so be sure to visit the Gallery the next time you’re in!

Burke   This month we welcome Andrea Burke of Clarksville as a new member to the Rosemont Artist Family. Art has always been a part of Andrea’s life in one way or another with many types of venues from piano, violin, and oboe; to clay, bread dough, tole painting; and lots of sewing.  She took her first watercolor class at the San Diego Art Museum in 2000, and has been hooked ever since with the variety of textures, the movement of the paint in the water, the array of techniques, and the endless potential for continuous growth!

Andrea has been blessed with many teachers and mentors since then.  She has studied with nationally known artists:  Lynn Ferris; Laurie Goldstein-Warren; Sterling Edwards; Laurie Humble; and Karlyn Holman.  Her latest teacher is Susan Harrison-Tustain of New Zealand!  Her technique and style are changing the way she thinks about subjects to paint – looking for the story, the relationship, and the feelings.  Andrea has been accepted as a Signature Member of the West Virginia Watercolor Society since 2013.  Andrea and her husband, Jim, moved to Clarksville, VA in September of 2013.  Andrea is very happy to be the newest artist represented by the Rosemont Art Gallery!

GardenOur new hanging also features Linda Garden as a guest artist. Linda is a representational artist who is inspired by the intimacy of portrait and figurative painting and experiments with color and composition in still life and landscapes. She works mostly in oil and pastel.   She is a published poet who delights in the connection between painting and poetry. Each requires balance and the creation of poignant moments in time. She has shifted her focus to painting because of the visual impact art has made in her life.

“I like to remind people of the beauty surrounding us and that a painting can strike a chord of well-being in anyone.” – Linda Garden

GriggsOur second guest Artist is Ron Griggs from South Hill, Virginia.  In Ron’s own words: “I like to think that I am a “glass half full” sort of person.  I look for the beauty and wonder in the everyday scenes around me, including the small and ordinary items we often overlook. I have pursued photography as a hobby for many.  Having always enjoyed drawing, I decided a few years ago to make the leap into oil painting because photography, while challenging and satisfying, captures reality; and composition and imagination are somewhat limited. The camera “sees” exactly what it there.  With painting one can explore what the mind “sees” and the opportunities exist for expanding beyond the reality of what is.  Painting allows exploring composition of scenes as an expression of what you feel as well as what you actually see. I have never had the opportunity to have any formal art training so I am largely self-taught”.

HollandAnd our final guest Artist this season is Dee Holland-Brock.  Dee is an award winning Photographer from La Crosse, VA and the Owner of “Dee Holland Photography”.  Dee has been shooting landscape photography for over 30 years, most recently including event and wedding photography in her schedule when time permits.  Rarely is Dee without a camera or two in tow. Over the last few years, Dee’s participation and unique style of photography have garnered her “Best in Show, 2012” at the Fayetteville Dogwood Festival, Fayetteville, NC and several 2nd/ 3rd place finishes for 2 Dimensional Work at Autumn with Topsail, Topsail Island, NC.  Dee was also selected as a “Virginian Artist” in 2013 and was part of a month long exhibit at the Virginia General Assembly in Richmond, Virginia.  Dee has prided herself over the years using only external filters as well as relying on camera settings to create unique photographs from her different/ angled perspective and not using computer technology to enhance her images.   Earlene Lampman, Artist Liaison for the Seawall Art Show, once wrote about Dee saying, “Dee’s strength in photography is her use of lighting and filters to enhance her unique style.   She is a true purist and my favorite shots are her works in black & white along with her “Wandering Fishing Boot” series, still life featuring a pair of old fishing boots that most often travel with her along with Virginia and North Carolina coasts”.
