Fleet-Plummer is opening the Greensboro Artists Gallery Sat., June 9
GREENSBORO, NC (June 1, 2018) – Fleet-Plummer, one of the Triad’s oldest retail stores, will celebrate the debut of its Greensboro Artists Gallery with a free opening party on Sat., June 9, from 11am – 3pm.
The gallery opening will highlight the works of five local artists including Jerry Pifer, whose airy watercolors evoke natural scenery and local architecture; AIU graduate Jess White, who uses mixed media to create geometric works with texture and depth; Judy Lomax, who expresses the beauty she sees around her in wonderful oil paintings full of life and color; Bethany Johnson, who paints bold and vibrant abstracts intended to evoke deep feelings; and Jo Ann Smith, who uses oils to recreate gorgeous travel and still life images like those she sees around her.
This inaugural roster of artists will be available to discuss their work during the opening, and hors-d’oeuvres will be served.
“We thrilled to celebrate the work of these amazing local artists, and make their originals available to our customers in a relaxed atmosphere.” said Fleet-Plummer vice-president Reid Plummer. “We’re excited to invite other local, emerging artists to showcase with us as well.”
