“First Impressions” – Guest Show by Blaine Johnson
September 9 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm FREE
- This collection of paintings represent Blaine’s first impression of the epic landscape, culture and tradition that is SCOTLAND! Traveling for two weeks this past summer – paints and brushes in tow – he experienced for the first time (but not for the last) the land of his ancestors and it reawakened his spirit.
- Cozy cottages, colossal castles, jaw-dropping vistas and intimate encounters with beasts and legends, he sought to convey his first impressions via pigment and bristle. Blaine says, “it was the single grandest adventure of my life. Atmosphere, weather and terrain presented interesting challenges as I painted in plein air – bugs, rain, and wind my constant companions.” Many paintings were done on location, while others were completed in his studio as he recreated his grand adventure over and over again.
- Blaine invites you “to experience my impressions of magic, myth and majesty – Scottish Style!”
- The exhibit opens Wednesday, August 30th and ends Saturday, September 30, 2017. The public is invited to a reception with complimentary refreshments and wine on Saturday, September 9th from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
