Objects Art and More, 4462 Irvington Road, Irvington, will celebrate its fourth anniversary on Memorial Day weekend. Several events are planned at the gallery.
Objects will host a celebration party from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, May 26, reported manager Terri Thaxton. Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served and the public is invited to join in the celebration. Two visiting artists will be in attendance.
David Witbeck, a Rhode Island painter, depicts whimsical, off perspective, fishermen holding their prize fish, said Thaxton. Witbeck will be showing his latest works inspired by his stay in the Northern Neck. He spent the winter painting new pieces including crabs and oysters.
Witbeck will be at the meet and greet celebration and at the gallery on Saturday showing his latest paintings.
Bernie Houston, a sculptor from Maryland, creates delightful creatures, fish and characters out of driftwood, said Thaxton. Houston’s rich imagination guides him as he will see a creature or figure in a single piece of driftwood which he enhances using paint and sculpting tools.
Houston also will be at the meet and greet celebration and at the gallery on Saturday showing his creations.
Refreshments will be served throughout the day Saturday. The public is urged to talk with the artists and view their creations, added Thaxton.
Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
