Carlton Gallery hosts 28th Autumn Exhibition

"October Reflections" by Ray Byram

Carlton Gallery hosts its 28th Autumn Exhibition on Sunday, Oct. 10, with an opening reception from 2 to 5 p.m.

"As Mother Nature presents her splendid palette, Carlton Gallery is also filled with the colorful art of the talented artists whose work in all mediums reflects the beauty and introspection of this time of year," a gallery spokesperson said.

The 28th Autumn Opening Reception allows visitors to meet the standing gallery artists attending and enjoy light hors d'oeuvres, including the traditional hot apple cider.

The colors of autumn are found at Carlton Gallery in the new work by artists Holt McLain, Roy Nichols, Jossie Fox Nichols, Andrew Braitman, Kevin Beck, Vae Hamilton, Warren Dennis, Toni Carlton, Brian Carney, Rainelle Meridith, Egi Antonaccio and Freeman Beard.

New gallery artist Ray Byram offers his oils of realistic autumn landscapes and reflections created with palette knifes.

The exhibition also features paintings of traditional and abstract landscapes, non-objective abstracts, figurative, still life, visionary, mixed media, water color and wildlife; three dimensional works in glass, clay, wood, fiber art, along with exquisite jewelry in 14-22K gold and sterling silver.

Carlton Gallery's expanded photography exhibit features the work of local artists Maria Lloyd and Terri Latta.

Lloyd's photographs include portraits and still lifes stylized in a particular era, consisting of a painter's quality. Latta is a nature photographer whose subject matter is wildlife, waterfalls, old barns, and mountain landscapes.

These new gallery artists, along with the four season landscapes of Lynne Townsend and Jack Stoddart's silver gelatin black-and-white traditional photography documenting the simple country life of the past, bring an added dimension to the gallery's collection of fine art.

Carlton Gallery's 28th Autumn Exhibition runs through Nov. 15. The gallery is located 10 miles south of Boone and 7 miles north of Linville on N.C. 105 in the Grandfather Community, with hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
