ART OPENINGS FRIDAY - Opening reception Friday November 3th from 5-8:30 P.M. for “Enchantment" by Patrice Reese & Kathy Miller, and "Punch of Vigorous Color" by Jesi Pace-Berkeley. The high-level student show "Artétudes: Third Annual" continues through Nov. 25 in the ELM Loft space.


New Exhibits
In November, Uptown Gallery becomes a magical place. In the Main gallery, Featured artists Patrice Reese and Kathy Miller will offer an exhibit called "Enchantment". The two artists are quite different: Reese paints abstractly in mixed media while Miller paints realistically in watercolor. However, both artists are inspired by their enchantment with something: Miller's paintings are inspired by French lifestyles and culture, from cafes to cathedrals; Reese is drawn to the creativity and the originality of children who used rocks, twigs and bark to build fairy gardens in Maine. The result is enchantment for the viewer as well. These two artists will be accompanied by fifteen to twenty other Uptown artists and two Guest artists. Guest artist David Northcott works experimentally, creating colorful, textured abstracts in mixed media, and Ron Holden once again displays his glowing turned wood pieces of domestic and exotic woods; he takes great pleasure in using reclaimed or distressed wood which would otherwise be destroyed.

Also on exhibit, in the Frable Gallery, is Virginia artist Jesi Pace-Berkeley's "Punch of Vigorous Color". Pace-Berkeley, a Professional Fellow of the VMFA, award-winning painter, and teacher, brings a unique style to her watercolors; they are colorful, vigorous and created with a great deal of freedom. The artist is known for her energetic and colorful faces, but will also exhibit landscapes, still-lifes, and non-objective works. The opening reception will be on Friday November 3, from 5 to 8:30 P.M.
The exhibits run from Nov. 1 through Dec. 24, 2017.

"Artétudes Third Annual" Challenges Beliefs About Students

From the Timesdispatch.com:
"Artétudes Third Annual" Challenges Beliefs About Students

Continuing in the Loft space is the annual student exhibit, "Artétude: Third Annual Exhibit & Sale", an excellent show by the very accomplished students of Elizabeth Eubanks, Uptown Gallery's teacher-in-residence. However, "student show" is a misleading term for the work of these students. They are experienced artists with varied interests who continue to grow in their art. Their show of works in in the ELM Loft gallery rivals the other exhibits and continues through Nov. 25th.
