Coming June 4th to a Gallery near you!!!

We are delighted to have Isaac Payne as our Featured Artist at Green Rice Gallery in our newest exhibition entitled: Charcoal Cities: Drawings of People and Places, which will be up for month of June.

Isaac gathers his inspiration from childhood memories and photographs taken from his travels and places he has lived, then creates the subject matter using a process of reflection and invention.

Carefully choosen colors amongst a muted color pallette add to the visually alluring images; creating a sense of mystery that can represent scenes everywhere in general yet nowhere specific.

We especially enjoy the larger scale of most of his pieces that create a strong pressence; exciting the viewer. The often imposing angles of the city/landspaces have a dramatic effect, making you feel pulled into each scene in a powerful way. His figuarative drawings remain aloof

Meet Olive!

This is Olive, she is an original metal sculpture by Rich Nossel and currently lives here at Green Rice. However, she is looking for a new home; either indoor OR outdoor works just fine. She is about 5 1/2 feet tall and 5 feet long (including the bicycle). Made entirely of metal, her bike is created from recycled metal parts, and her body is constructed of hundreds of metal washers. She is coated with an olive green paint and she is designed to naturally rust for that aged petina. If you would like to see Olive in person, visit us at Green Rice Gallery or call/e-mail for pricing information at 704.344.0300 or

Seasons Change...

And so does our featured exhibit once a month! This month we are excited to showcase the work of one of our very own resident artists; Holt McLean! It has been almost a full 2 years since her last solo show here, and I can assure you, it was worth the wait. Her palette knife oil paintings of NC treescapes are the featured subject matter this year. Portrayed in winter, spring, summer and fall, her seasonally inspired creations are a beautiful sight to behold. Enticing pathways wind their way through many of her pieces, inviting you to take a leisurely stroll through the forest. Mother Nature can't even compete with the beauty and serenity of Holt's Changing of the Seasons exhibit. Come out tonight and feel the excitement as we celebrate Holt's Opening Meet the Artist Reception from 7-9pm at Green Rice Gallery! The show will run from May 7th - 30th. Don't miss your chance to own an original painting created by Artist Holt McLean!!!
