This summer Mark Keathley has directed our attention to America’s beaches. His next release due in our galleries this month is Twilight Moon. Done as a panoramic, the light house draws us in across gentle tide waters and into the comfortable neighborhood. The peaceful evening soothes as the stars twinkle in a still colorful sky.
Last month Mark presented us with a set: Morning Glories and Evening Glories. These are two views of the same beach but perhaps years apart.
On Saturday, May 7th Infinity Fine Art and Art of the South hosted our very first live webcast event with Mark Keathley. At that event Mark unveiled his newest release, Spring’s Renewal, Seasons of Life II.
Springs Renewal, Seasons of Life II
The webcast was very successful and will be the first of many. I will keep you informed about future events. The original of Springs Renewal can be seen at this gallery, T.K. at the Village in Gatlinburg. If I can answer and questions about this piece or any other Keathley or Kinkade, please visit the contact heading on this blog.
For me the absolute most exciting days at the gallery are when we host an artist reception. The gallery is teeming with people and I get to see the wonder on their faces as they are pulled into the artist process. On May 7th Mark Keathley will be in our gallery and this artist reception will be extra special. He will spend most of the day sketching and signing canvases that have been purchased in advance or are purchased that day. Some folks will come and sit with him as he remarks their canvas; how special is that?
Anyone that purchases one of Mark’s limited edition pieces that day will receive an 18×24″ signed and numbered paper print of Mark’s release: Dance of Grace.
The whole days events will be webcast but between 4 and 5 pm that day Mark will be at our home office here in Gatlinburg and unveil his newest release: Seasons of Life II. In addition during that hour Mark will present 6 small original oils that will be sold to the first caller as each is presented on the web cast.
There will be other activities during the day, drawings, giveaways and such. If you are in Gatlinburg that day we hope you will join us. If not be sure to check out the days activities online. The web cast will be on www.infinityfineart.com; just select the video option.
Art of the South is very proud to announce our first Keathley event of 2011. Mark will be at our T.K. at the Village gallery on May 7th for the entire day!!! Any of Mark’s work that is purchased between now and the day of the event can be remarked and signed by this exceptional artist. If you are able to visit our gallery on the day of the event, you can sit down with Mark as he sketches YOUR canvas.
Mark’s newest piece “Bedtime Stories” will be in our gallery in time for this event, but it will not last long. I hope you will join us for this special day.
