Natural Surroundings in November...

November will feature local Charlotte artist, Holt McLean’s exhibit, Natural Surroundings. Her Mediterranean inspired works will be celebrated in an artist's reception on Friday, November 7 from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. The exhibit will include more than 30 of McLean’s original works featuring the beauty of her recent trip to Greece along with some of her favorite spots that we all know and love, right here in North Carolina!

McLean, a North Carolina native, pulls people into her artwork by creating familiarity for the viewer. When looking at either her overseas work, or the art from right here in our own backyard, it is not uncommon to find yourself saying, "I've been there!". Holt studied at the International School of Painting, Drawing and Sculpture in Italy, and was greatly influenced by the European Masters. She adopted a classic style of her own that incorporates impasto style palette knife techniques which add texture and boldness to her paintings.

In a compliment to McLean’s work, we will also be including artwork done by myself, Carla Garrison, which feature architectural doorways of the past, the present and the imagination. The show will run from November 7-29 - don't miss it - I know I won't
