Stellers Gallery at Ponte Vedra Beach will exhibit the work of nationally recognized painters Erin Gregory and Shawn Meharg with an opening reception on Friday, Oct. 5, from 6 to 9 p.m. at 240 A1A N. in Ponte Vedra Beach. The show will feature a new body of work by each of the two artists.
As a gallery favorite, Gregory’s focus as an artist emphasizes contrast and variety within the composition of each painting. She vividly captures the light and color of her subjects in florals, landscapes and figures. She paints in acrylic and oil with close-up and distant bold colors, and lively layers and washes. Throughout Gregory’s career, she has had numerous one-woman shows and participates in many group exhibitions. Gregory has received numerous awards for her art and has been featured on many blogs and in a variety of magazines.
Meharg has been showing at Stellers Gallery since beginning his fine art career. As another gallery favorite, his work focuses on the making of art, which aids him in recalling forgotten moments of his past. The traces of time represented in the paintings are often occurrences or interactions with people or nature as formative snapshots in an elaborate sequence of events, leading to the present. Meharg worked as a theatrical scenic artist and designer throughout many branches of the entertainment industry and began his journey as an artist in 2001. His work shows a diversity of style and subject, all involving the reflection and absorption of light.
Stellers Gallery at Ponte Vedra is open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, call (904) 273-6065; visit the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/stellersgalleryatpontevedra; visit the Instagram page at www.instagram.com/stellersgallerypontevedra; or visit the website at www.stellersgallery.com.
