On the heels of a hugely successful art workshop with Sterling Edwards, Sunset River Marketplace – the eclectic Calabash, N.C. art gallery – announces a showing of Edwards’ newest abstract pieces at the gallery. It includes two on paper under glass and several large acrylic paintings on canvas.

Originally from St. Louis, Mo., Edwards now resides in Hendersonville, N.C. where he has a commerical gallery/studio  in addition to his home studio.
He began painting at age 12, when his parents noticed his natural ability to draw and enrolled him in an oil painting class. The young artist quickly began experimenting with every medium available to him.

His painting background is mainly in traditional transparent watercolor. Once a student of watercolor master Zoltan Szabo, Edwards developed his own watercolor style and began conducting workshops in 1993. He is also the designer of a signature set of watercolor brushes and palette that are marketed internationally.

He has been a featured artist in Watercolor Magic magazine and was elected in 2008 as a signature member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour. In 2010 he was awarded a signature membership in the esteemed Transparent Watercolor Society of America. His book, “Creating Luminous Watercolor: a Four-Step Process” was published in 2010 by Northlight Books.

According to the artist, he spent years making the transition from a representational painter to an abstract artist. “My abstracts are my personal interpretations of things I have seen and places I have ventured.”

As an abstract expressionist, Edwards relies on expressive brushwork to convey a sense of energy in his paintings. When combined with multiple layers of pigment and rich value contrasts, a thought provoking painting emerges that is a unique interpretation by the artist.

The abstracts by Edwards will be available at the gallery through Sept. 30.

According to gallery owner Ginny Lassiter, “Sunset River will offer another Sterling Edwards Abstract Acrylics workshop April 1 – 5, 2013. This has been one of our most popular, most sought after workshops. I advise anyone who is interested in participating to contact the gallery and register for the class.

Sunset River Marketplace is a 10,000 square-foot gallery featuring fine arts and crafts by North and South Carolina artists. The gallery feature community programs, art and pottery classes, and custom on-site framing. The gallery is located at 10283 Beach Drive SW (Hwy. 179) in Calabash, N.C. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information call 910-575-5999 or visit the website: http://www.sunsetrivermarketplace.com. Sunset River Marketplace also has a Facebook page and posts daily updates about new art, programs and events.

Artist Melanie Walter will conduct a workshop titled Pine Needle Basketry at Sunset River Marketplace art gallery in Calabash, N.C. on July 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. During the four-hour session, students will learn how to create their own pine needle basket focusing on how to start, coil and shape the basket.

Walter will also discuss how to locate long leaf pine needles, prepare them for use and how to seal the finished basket. One small project will be completed during the class.

According to Walter, she discovered the lost art of pine needle basketry in the early 1990s, when she purchased a home that had over 100 long leaf pine trees on the property. She soon developed her own basket making style, incorporating many natural materials into her work, including walnuts, hickory nuts and bamboo.

In 2001 she created her own business, Pine Garden Baskets. Since 2006, Walter has been adding clay components to her pine needle baskets, taking her work in a new direction.  She won two Regional Artist Grants from the Cumberland County/ Fayetteville Arts Council in 2009 and 2011, was featured in Our State magazine’s Oct. 2009 story entitled, “The Beauty of the Pines,” by Liz Biro. She also is a recent winner of a Merit Award from the Buyers Market of American Craft, and a Finalist for the prominent Niche Award in February 2011. She exhibits locally at Sunset River Marketplace.

The fee for the workshop is $65 and includes all materials. For more information, or to register, call the gallery at 910-575-5999. Visit the website at: http://www.sunsetrivermarketplace.com. Sunset River is located at 10283 Beach Dr. (Hwy. 179) in Calabash, N.C.
