NEW ART EXHIBIT AT LIBRARY IN COVINGTON, VA.



“Colorful Seasons” art show opens today, August 31, 2017, at the Alleghany Highlands Regional Library 406 W Riverside St, Covington, VA 24426. The art show will celebrate the colors and changes of the seasons in paintings by the Double Line Painters of the Blue Ridge: Mary Anne Meador, Bonnie Mason, Judy Lochbrunner, Linda Schaar, and Sue Furrow.


“The show will include works in oil, acrylic and even mixed media, says member artist Judy Lochbrunner.  “Many of the paintings are inspired by locations in and around our area of Western Virginia.”


The art show will hang from August 31- November 2, 2017.   The art show can be seen during regular library hours (9:30 AM- 5:30 PM Monday, Wednesday, Friday; 9:30 AM -8:30 PM Tuesday and Thursday; 9:30 AM - 2:30 PM Saturday) .  Additional information on the art show can be obtained by calling the library at (540) 962-3321.  



We were delighted to see the bright and beautiful space at the Alleghany Highlands Regional Library in downtown Covington.  Kyle Keyser who coordinates the art show displays made it so easy for us by hanging the artwork.  His expertise with the space really made it look good.  

We invite everyone in and around Covington to come by to see this art show.  And let us know your favorite painting!

A GRAND SATURDAY FOR THE DOUBLE LINE PAINTERS


Hello Friends, We had a fantastic group yesterday for our NO BRUSHES art workshop at the Lynchburg Art Club.  Although they had very different backgrounds in art, their enthusiasm to learn new techniques enabled them to complete a painting in the two hours.


And as the photos show, the results were beautiful and exciting.
WELL DONE !!




We hope to see YOU at the next workshop .

WE ARE STILL AS BUSY AS EVER !!!


Hello Friends,  Just a note from some of the Double Liner's to say we hope you have signed up through the Lynchburg Art Club for the NO BRUSHES WORKSHOP on Aug. 26th.  It will be a lot of fun.  Not your ordinary workshop.


Judy says of her photo at the top, the first on top is finished.  The next is started and the rest are waiting.  Time to get to work.
And Linda sent this photo of her latest work, HOLLYHOCKS, getting ready for a show we will hang at the end of August in Covington.


And Sue is ready for the Covington Show and the LAC workshop so her painting above was painted at South Peak in Roanoke across from Tanglewood Mall on Rt. 419.
She is trying to hone her plein air skills, what little she has.  And those are not tubes of Chapstick in her landscape above, they are water towers !

We wish you a very happy, hot, end of summer week .

THE RECEPTION AT THE LYNCHBURG ART CLUB


Hello Dear Friends,  We were real happy to see some of you at our reception last night in Lynchburg.
I was told we had a record number of people !


We managed to get good photos of everyone except Bonnie.  But got several photos of her beautiful work.  There is the talented Linda with her work.


And one visitor studying our work.  Bonnie's big one shows up nicely over the imaginary couch.


And the talented Gardening Artist Judy with one of her Floral Beauties.


And the OH So talented Mary Anne chatting with the Alcohol Control Lady.


And the SO SO talented Sue with her abstracted Landscape.


One good shot of a few of the attendees.  The Lynchburg Art Club always puts on a delish reception with lots of choices that draw the visitors right in.  We all had to get a taste before starting our perusal of the creative offerings.  I would be willing to bet everyone found something that would match their couch !
This exhibit will be up through the end of August so you have time to go find the beauty that will go with your couch.  Check their website HERE for hours and directions.

We thank You for Your Support.

HANGING THE LAC SHOW "GAURANTEED TO MATCH YOUR COUCH


Hello Dear Friends,  As usual we are some busy artists !  These photos were taken at the Lynchburg Art Clubs Home on Rivermont Ave. in Lynchburg, Va.


Basically we placed all the works where we wanted them to be hung. 


We had to get a few off the floor in the office area so the members could walk.
Bonnie and Judy got it done in short order.


Of course we had our usual moments of merriment and tom-foolery but no photos to prove it.



Back in the office Judy is hanging 2 of Bonnie's Beauties. Bonnie is a gal on fire in the gallery world.  Next thing ya know she will be in New York with Brian Rutenberg!! 
And that is Doni Guggenheim in the gorgeous coral color.


We hope you can come to the reception Friday Evening at the LAC.
The poster is below with times and dates.


Here we are packing up cars Monday night because we wanted to make sure all the big paintings that will match your couch's  would fit !  You gotta come see these BIG'UN'S if nothing else.


And don't forget to sign up for the workshop at the LAC while you are there.
