New Artist Spotlight:  Karen K. Brown

March-April 5: 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 first week of April.

Saturday, March 16: 10 a.m.-4 p.m.  - The Gilded Arts Workshop 

Using the art of sgrafitto, which means "to scratch the surface," participants will transfer creativity to the surface of a water gilded 22Kt gold leaf panel.  Joshua Terney, an artisan of Shuptrine's Gold Leaf Designs who was trained by owner Alan Shuptrine, will give step-by-step instructions to learn etching,  burnishing, and finishing techniques on a provided water gilded 22Kt gold leaf 5 x 5 inch panel. The workshop includes a finished panel to take home, as well as a 30 minute water gilding class. Participants may bring their own design, or one will be provided.  There is a limit of 12 spaces. Deadline for participation is Friday, March 8. Cost is $200 per person. Contact Stephanie Valencia at Shuptrine's Gold Leaf for more details.
