The Gallery at NHG has come a long way since opening in December of 2014. With a reception or open house event nearly every month and shows changing every two months, it has brought us many new friends and contacts and certainly kept us busy.
This Friday from 4:30-6pm, we have a free, casual wine & cheese reception open to all who can stop by NHG. Here are two new artists we're particularly excited to show and who will be with us to visit with guests and interpret their works during the reception:
Lori Cusick is a Dallas artist who describes herself as "first and foremost" a plein air painter. We discovered her work after hosting tour materials for the North Dallas Artist Studio Tour and were in awe of her bold brush strokes and sense of color and light. In her own words, "I have always been an artist. As far back as my memory serves, creating art has liberated me from life’s daily struggles. The concept of time passing becomes an abstraction when I am immersed in creating." Lori's works represent a variety of subjects, from florals and landscapes to domestic pets and humans, too. You can see several galleries of her paintings and read more about Lori at her web site, here.
Steven Gordon Linebaugh is a Rowlett, Texas artist whose works evoke a deep appreciation for the natural beauty of both Texas and Oklahoma. An avid outdoorsman, Steve finds much of his inspiration from hiking and fishing trips with his son, and his subtle renderings of sunsets, misty skies, and light through water reflect this:

In addition to these two new artists, you can enjoy a summertime-fun casual collection of student works in a variety of styles and skill levels. These students are mostly retirees, many of whom dreamed of beginning painting but who waited until after their professional careers to pursue it. They're planning to be here, and they're excited to show off their hard work.
Also here on Friday we're featuring new works by Dallas artists Yvette Myers-Thompson & Jim Tompkins as well as a collection of works by Dallas photographer Jennifer Mohon-Sturch. We hope you can join us!
Remember, too, that we welcome submissions from state and local artists who are interesting in selling their works through the Gallery at NHG. Our goal is to feature works that reflect an appreciation for nature and/or gardening through subject, composition, media or function. Please email email@example.com for more information and to submit photos and links to online portfolios.
See you this Friday at NHG!
