Randy Emmons and his award-winning watercolors will be at Penn Cove Gallery from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, August 8th, where he will demonstrate his way with watercolor.
Randy paints local scenes in his own special style. To make his paintings sparkle, he lays the paint down clean and crisp, with the whites intact. Some viewers say his paintings make them happy, and that, he says, is what he wants his paintings to do—make people feel good.
Wood sculptor Pat Collins will be at the Gallery to discuss the inspiration and woodworking methods behind his wood sculptures.
Collins has been sculpting wood for over 30 years. Working in the genre of stylized sculpture, he approaches his work with two goals. First he strives to showcase the beauty and natural figure of fine hardwoods, without being tied to the restrictions of realism. Then, to add a measure of ambiguity, he attempts to draw viewers into the creations, allowing them the opportunity to interpret and ponder what they’re seeing.
In the words of Vincent Van Gogh, “Leave the obvious vague and exaggerate the essential.” For Collins, “the essential” is the wood itself.
