I am thrilled to be having a show with another pastel artist who is also a good friend. Common Ground: The Pastel Art of Laurel Vaughan and Diane Artz Furlong, will be on view at the Dolores Sekel Art Atrium at Lord Fairfax Community College in Middletown, Virginia, beginning Saturday, November 24-Friday, January 4, when the show moves to the LFCC campus in Fauquier County.
This past summer I was inspired to do a series of paintings depicting the spectacle of cloudscapes we are privileged to view every day here in Oranda. I will be showing these paintings for the first time.
Laurel Vaughan, a pastel artist from Woodstock, Virginia, is also inspired by the Shenandoah Valley landscape. Although her method and materials differ from mine, we share a “common ground” with our passion for pastels and our Valley muse.
The art atrium is open to the public and the show is on view every day. We hope you get a chance to visit.
