Painter Joseph Cave presents at Art Cellar Coffee Talk

'Mountain Farm No. 3' by Joseph Cave

Highly collected and widely admired painter Joseph Cave will celebrate the Fourth of July weekend at The Art Cellar Gallery in Banner Elk.

His work is featured along with painter Richard Oversmith’s in the gallery’s newest exhibition, “Two Views,” which opened July 2 and runs through July 26.

On Saturday, July 5, Cave will be at the gallery for a Saturday Coffee Talk, from 10 a.m. to noon. This casual event includes a short talk by the artist and an opportunity to ask questions, purchase his new book and learn more about his inspiration and technique, while enjoying morning refreshments.

The “Two Views” exhibit features the landscapes of Cave and Oversmith. Both acclaimed artists work in oils, but each brings a very distinctive style of working and interpreting the landscape.

An opening reception with the artists will take place Friday, July 11, from 4 to 6 p.m.

According to The Art Cellar, “Pastoral views, open vistas and waterways will fill the gallery, as these accomplished, mature artists transport us through their approach to interpreting and capturing the world around us.”

Oversmith will discuss his work and present a demonstration Saturday, July 12, from 10 a.m. to noon.

The Art Cellar is celebrating its 22nd year in the High Country, and, according to gallery assistant Sarah Myers, 2014 marks another season filled with some of the finest artists from throughout the Southeast, with feature exhibitions and engaging shared gallery installations throughout its three floors of exhibition space.

Along with six feature exhibitions this summer, the gallery has expanded its Saturday Coffee Talks to every Saturday in June, July and August, so visitors can join different gallery artists each Saturday, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Furthermore, the gallery’s staff is always available to assist collectors looking for special artwork, whether it’s for a single piece or in building an entire collection. The gallery also houses an onsite frame studio, providing a multitude of framing services, from custom conservation framing to mirrors.

The Art Cellar Gallery is located in Banner Elk on N.C. 184 and is open Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit, or call (828) 898-5175.
