Towns & Cities
Chris Chappell, April 18th – July 31st
Chris Chappell studied art at the American College of the Applied Arts in Atlanta, Georgia, and later established a regimented work ethic of daily painting, concentrating on made up spaces as well as invented landscapes. Over the past few years, his paintings shifted from the mazes of apartment complexes and repeating suburban developments to focus on a new frontier: the human figure. As one of the founding members of the Austin Figurative Project, Chris has studied the human form and continued to make and break rules of painting in an effort to capture the essence of life that only the combination of turpentine and paint can achieve.
For the Love of Glass
Various Artists, May 1st – July 31st
Throughout the months of May and June, come experience “For the Love of Glass” featuring beautiful glass artwork by: Ghost Pepper Glass (Katie Plunkard, Lauren Hunt, and Shara Funari), Three Dimensional Visions (Sally Pennington Moore, Michael Kerry Brown, and Patrick Kerry Brown), Caliente Hot Glass (Glen Andrews II and Ruth Bushman), and Maria Montoya Hohenstein.
Sherry C. Nelson, July 1-31st 2019
Our Lost Pines Art League “Artist of the Month” for July 2019 is Sherry C. Nelson. Sherry is known throughout the United States and across the world for her paintings of realistic birds and other wildlife, which she has taught for over 40 years. Seminars in 46 states and several foreign countries have given her the opportunity to share both her love of birds and her techniques for painting them.
Sherry has been an active member of the National Society of Decorative Painters since its inception. The National Society recognized her painting skill when she was awarded the Master Decorative Artist certification. She is a past-President of the organization and received the prestigious Silver Palette Award in recognition of her promotion of decorative painting worldwide.
She has traveled extensively throughout the world, photographing and painting birds and wildlife. Sherry loves to teach art classes, and share her love for the places she has visited.
In Sherry’s words, “Traveling to observe and photograph birds and other wildlife to create a reference and resource for my painting – that’s what I love most.”
