Solo Exhibition at Grace Centre Gallery
Skip recently had a solo exhibition of paintings and charcoal/pastel works at the Grace Centre Gallery in Mills River, NC. The paintings included works from several series, including Old Times, Meditation on War, Model in the Studio, the charcoal and pastel New Works, and a few more.
Art in the Asheville Airport
Four of Skip's charcoal and pastel figurative works are in the "Art in the Airport" at the Asheville Regional Airport, along with some really good works by other artists from western North Carolina. They'll be on the walls until August. When you're flying in or out of Asheville, check out the exhibit! Here are two of the artworks, "Emma #8" and "Jazmin #1":
Live Wedding and Event Painting
If you're looking for a unique feature at your wedding, reception, birthday, corporate celebration, or other special event, consider having Skip creates a painting of it, live, as it happens. Guests can watch the painting develop during the course of the event. Afterward, Skip will take it back to the studio to bring it up to his high standards of finish. When delivered, you'll have a high-quality painting that will be a family heirloom for generations. For more information, visit the Asheville Event Paintings site.
"Local HeARTed" Podcast Interview
Skip was interviewed by Meredith Adler for the Local HeARTed podcast. This podcast is a collection of interviews with artists and others in the art world who are based in western North Carolina, especially Asheville. Skip's interview is rather lengthy at 1 hr 20 minutes, but it covers a lot of subjects and provides a lot of insight into what he does and why he does it.

Skip holds life drawing/painting sessions in his studio every Wednesday evening from 7-9 pm. We have a different model each week in a single pose.
