Timberlake painting at Art Cellar
As the High Country welcomes November and the changing of the seasons, The Art Cellar Gallery presents a glimpse of winter through the eyes of acclaimed artist Bob Timberlake.
"Grandfather Mountain" is the title of his new watercolor painting, which depicts this beautiful landmark blanketed in an early season snow. This painting also celebrates Timberlake's 40th anniversary as a professional artist.
Timberlake admirers will have a rare chance to see this original work currently being shown through November. Timberlake is an internationally known realist artist and designer, famous for his realistic watercolors of simple living in his native North Carolina. Many people are also familiar with his line of best selling home furnishings, rugs and other home accessories.
Timberlake began his professional art career more than 40 years ago at the urging of well-known artist Andrew Wyeth.
Timberlake has held art exhibitions all over the United States at venues like Hammer Galleries in New York City, the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., and the Frye Museum in Seattle, Wash.
Over the years, Timberlake's work has been featured in scores of magazines and newspapers and three hardcover art books.
The Art Cellar Gallery is also taking orders on giclee's of this new work. This limited time edition will be available to order only through Nov. 27. These reproductions of the original work are each hand signed by Timberlake and have the same hand-deckled edges as the original. The Art Cellar is also offering framing options.
The Art Cellar Gallery offers a wide selection of artwork by local and regional artists.
"There are many smaller artworks exhibited that are perfect for that special gift and the gallery is also preparing for a busy season of holiday framing," a gallery spokesperson said.
The Art Cellar is located at 920 Shawneehaw Ave. in Banner Elk and is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call (828) 898-5175.
