Rob Shaw Gallery and Framing will be hosting First Friday on State Street with an opening reception for painter George Stone September 6 from 6 – 9 pm.
The gallery is at 324 State Street, West Columbia.
Stone is a representational painter who focuses primarily on landscape and still life subject matter using oil paints and watercolors. He paints extensively from life (plein air) but also works in the studio using plein air studies, sketches and photographic reference. He has won many local awards and his paintings hang in numerous private collections. Stone attempts to convey the beauty and dignity of everyday scenes. He is especially interested in developing moods in his landscapes by capturing the quality of light present during different times of day, different seasons of the year and different locations.
