Reflection Riding Gallery Opens With 70 Oil Paintings

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

This Friday, from 6-8 p.m. marks the grand opening of a new arts gallery at Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center. The Visitors Center Gallery opening, during which guests can enjoy complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres, is for Rena Malone’s “Four Seasons at Reflection Riding.” Malone’s collection encompasses over 65 oil paintings, all inspired by scenes throughout Reflection Riding’s 317 acres of forest, field, and stream.

In this newly designated arts space, Reflection Riding plans to highlight nature-focused creativity of all kinds. Rena Malone, Friday’s featured artist, is a longtime member and supporter of Reflection Riding. About the property, Ms. Malone said, “I feel so good when I’m over here walking on the mountain trails… or past the wildlife and the ponds. It’s just a beautiful place.”

Ms. Malone’s show, previously on display at the Exum Gallery, will be at the Visitors Center Gallery at Reflection Riding until Nov. 15. Visitors can attend the grand opening this Friday or see the collection during Reflection Riding’s public hours.  All paintings will be for sale throughout the exhibit period. The organization’s staff are currently selecting the next exhibit after “Four Seasons at Reflection Riding” concludes.
