Here are the upcoming events at Shuptrine’s Gold Leaf Designs:

New Artist Spotlight: Karen K. Brown
February - March: Come to the gallery to view just finished works by one of Shuptrine's painters, Karen K. Brown.  Ms. Brown is an oil and acrylic artist from Asheville, N.C., and her work reflects her passion for painting as she conveys on canvas the beauty of the ever changing ethereal landscapes of the Smokey and Blue Ridge mountains.  Ms. Brown’s style is loose, emotional, and whimsical, full of bright colors and strong movement that provides the viewer a peaceful experience in an atmospheric perspective. Large spatial works and smaller room fillers on view.  The New Artist Spotlight runs until the end of March.   

Pink Open House
Saturday, Feb. 9: 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Open House Saturdays at Shuptrine's.   Enjoy an array of pink treats, browse the galleries and take a private tour with gallery manager, Stephanie Valencia.  Get the inside scoop of all new works, and have a designer digitally mock up favorite works in your personal space for visual reference, a technique for seeing how the artwork works within your home.   

Late Night Thursdays:  Thursday, Feb. 14, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. 
Shuptrine's will be open late night Valentine's Day for those last minute gifters, and for the opportunity to experience a date night activity before dinner plans.  Stop by the gallery and enjoy a romantic ambiance,  smooth jazz,  and a glass of champagne while surrounded by works of art.
