ARTISTS STEPHEN MOORE AND LAURA POSS
WILL HAVE THEIR ART ON DISPLAY
FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST
For the month of August, the Village Gallery has invited two artists as guest Artists of the Month. Stephen Moore, acrylic artist, and Laura Poss, watercolorist, will be in attendance at a reception to be held Saturday, August 3rd from 2:00 until 5:00 PM at the Gallery at 300 Hodges Street in Oriental. Both artists are multiple award winners for their work.
Poss, a Greensboro native and former resident of Oriental, has spent the last 11 years developing her career as a watercolor artist, book illustrator, and teacher. Laura has enjoyed drawing and creating since she was a child, but it was while living in Oriental that she fell in love with watercolors from the area and became inspired to learn to use them herself. She began painting sailboats, but now paints many subjects including birds, landscapes, and people in action. She also enjoys painting city-scapes, often depicting rainy days, enjoying the reflections of these watery scenes.
Moore, a native of North Carolina, graduated from UNC and has retired from a 34 year career in family medicine. He too began his interest in art as a child and has been painting and showing art since 1980. Known for the color and light qualities in his paintings, he moves from landscape painting to figurative, portrait and still life works. He works from his studio in Pine Knoll Shores.
The Village Gallery is a cooperative gallery showing the works of more than 35 local and regional artists.
