"Presence of Water" by Abingdon, Virginia artist Thelma Blake at Barr Gallery

June 2 – September 30, 2019 @ Gallery @ Barr Photographics

ABINGDON, VA — The Gallery @ Barr Photographics announces the summer installment of the Corner Gallery’s 2019 exhibition series with a collection of watercolor floral and still life works entitled "Presence of Water” by Abingdon, Virginia artist Thelma Blake.

In her artist’s statement, Blake says, “I am drawn to the media of watercolor for its fluidity on paper and the magical presence as it moves about on paper. Sometimes I force the paint to do what I want and can see in my mind and other times, I allow it to do what it wants to do, always watching for those “happy accidents” to develop.”

"Presence of Water” is celebrated with a reception and demonstration of technique by Blake, to which the public is invited, Friday, June 14 from 7-9 p.m. in The Gallery @ Barr Photographics, 152 E. Main Street, Abingdon, Virginia. "Progression!” will hang, and be offered for sale, through July 31.

The Gallery @ Barr Photographics is housed in the Greenway Trigg Building, located in the heart of Abingdon’s main street historic district. Call 276-628-1486 or visit http://barrphotographics.com for further information.
