Love Locks (watercolor) by Anne Eberle
From 5:00 to 9:00pm on October 3, many of the River Gallery artist’s will be displaying their work in Antique Alley businesses on the night of the Art Crawl. This “Antique Alley Art Tour” will feature over 20 area artists. The Trenton street shops are staying open until 9:00pm for the art tour.
The River Gallery will have live music for the Gallery Crawl. Award winning musician Amanda McDowell will be playing at the gallery. The featured artist will be watercolorist Anne Eberle. The title for Anne’s exhibit is “European Palette“. During a recent trip Anne was very conscious of the contrast of the very old structures with the faster pace of society today, the permanance versus the changes occurring on the continent. This exhibit represents a personalized view of Europe today. While she also works in acrylic, collage and mixed media, watercolor remains Anne’s favorite medium. Her work has been exhibited and won awards in many regional and national exhibitions, including Masur Museum of Art, Louisiana Watercolor Society, Mid-Southern Watercolorists, Watercolor Oklahoma,Kentucky Watercolor Society and American Watercolor Society.
Barnyard Chatter (watercolor)
Joyce Beauvais is exhibiting her latest paintings in April as the River Gallery’s featured artist. Her collection includes watercolor and oil paintings of both people and animals: two-eyed, two-legged, and four-legged. She has added a lot of color to her subjects, which include chickens, fox, deer, cats, and dogs. For humans, she has included sisters, seniors, and a Mexican-influenced MaDonna. Beauvais has also included her “Best of Show” award from the 1St Annual Union Arts Council Competitive Arts Exhibition in Union Parish, where she resides. This award winning painting “DeLoutre Bottom,” is a watercolor on Yupo paper. The painting “Barnyard Chatter” of chickens won third place in the same art show. Joyce finds that trying different subjects in different media challenges her and keeps [her artwork] fun. She hopes everyone who views her work shares in the fun of her creativity.
