"I started this local gallery after approached with the challenge of creating unique pieces of art on barn board for Shinn Vineyards," said Julia King
, Sales Representative at Shinn Estate Vineyards
. "While working with the barn board I thought, wouldn't it be great if we could offer our space for other local artists to display their works?"
King founded the Pop! Up Art Gallery, a monthly, one night exhibit on a selected Friday, where East End artists can showcase their work. "It gives local artists a really laid back and friendly atmosphere where they can display their most prized pieces or maybe something new they would like to get feed back on," King explained.
The event will include artists that are both well-known and just getting started in the art world. "We encourage each artists to bring the support of their family, friends, and followers to enjoy a fun night of art and wine and celebrate all the local talent we have here on the east end," said King. Artwork shown will be for sale with all proceeds going entirely to the artist.
The next Pop! Up show is Friday May 30, from 5 to 8 p.m. The featured artist will be Scott Leard (www.scottleardsart.com
), who creates unique sci-fi like pieces with ceramics and wood.
