Julie Russell is displaying her marquetry art pieces at the Falling Rivers Gallery from August 12 to 23. Marquetry is the art of cutting wood veneer and creating pictures or designs from different woods. These beautifully designed “pictures in wood” would make someone a great Christmas gift; it’s not too early to start your shopping. Julie’s subject choices have varied over the years and have most recently been focused on ocean scenes and birds.
Here is the juror for our current exhibit Paul Keysar, an oil painter of note and art instructor in Charlotte, with the Best of Show. Congrats to the winners and to all who are participating!
