Tenant Artists Show V: Exhibit On View

TenantShowV.Banner1.jpg ClearWater Artist Studios

On View in our Main Gallery! The latest and greatest by our amazingly talented Tenant Artists

Spectacular Raptor Portraits, vibrant children’s book illustrations, large and affecting abstract expressionist pieces, and softly-hued, lovely landscapes are just some of the works on display- not to mention a range of turned-wood and glass pieces.

ClearWater Artist Studios houses the working studios of 12 artists as well as the Southern Piedmont Woodturners’  Association (a Club).  All artists leasing individual studios are juried-in using a range of criteria (currently, the waiting list stands at 14).

Opening Reception is Friday, March 22, 2019 starting at 6:00. Reception will close at 9:00pm.

The tenant artists of ClearWater Artist Studios will gather to welcome the public and discuss their latest work and experiences as working artists, this Friday, March 22, 2019. Some works in the show, ‘Tenant Artists Show V,’ mark key recent developments in the evolution of certain artists’ style, choices and career path; while others exhibit the mastery of techniques and subject matter honed over years.

The Artists will form a Panel Discussion in the middle of the Gallery starting at 7:00 p.m. during the Opening Reception. Guests are welcome to enter after this time, we just ask consideration for those speaking and listening.

Free; free parking; refreshments.

See our FaceBook Event page for photos and updates!
