Artist Brad Stroman at Morning Star Gallery
Morning Star Gallery invites the public to a reception honoring artist Brad Stroman on Friday, Sept. 10, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
Stroman will be on hand to show his acrylic paintings for which he has gained considerable acclaim.
As an artist-activist, Brad Stroman combines his passion for creating art with his concerns for the environment. His paintings have won honors and awards from environmentalists, as well as art enthusiasts.
Stroman's art is included in nearly one hundred private and corporate collections, and, most recently, two of his paintings were selected by the Hudson River Museum in New York for its exhibition, Paintbox Leaves.
Visitors to Morning Star Gallery will see examples of Stroman's paintbox leaves, as well as oil paintings and sculpture by Greg Osterhaus, Linda Leeger Stokes, Trena McNabb, Rod Shaw and Nan Jacobsohn.
The gallery's focus on fine American crafts includes large blown glass vessels, works in wood, ceramics and pottery, and artisan jewelry. The current jewelry collection features Katya's dichroic glass Trunk Show.
Morning Star Gallery is located at 257 Sunset Drive in Blowing Rock, next door to Crippen's Restaurant and Country Inn.
This event is a part of Sunset Stroll on Sunset Drive. For more information, call (828) 295-6991.
