Charles David Viera & Eric Rhinehart in Oil & Water

"Oil & Water"
featuring Charles David Viera and Eric Rhinehart
  August 7 - September 1, 2014

Opening Reception: Saturday, August 9, 5-8pm



The relationship between "oil and water" captures the subtle creative tension that artists Charles David Viera and Eric Rhinehart bring to their subjects, so it is a fitting name for their dual show at the Artists Gallery

The aptly named "Oil and Water" exhibition will run from August 7 to September 1 and will feature works in oil ,acrylic and watercolor paints as well as a number of pastels . This is the second time the artists have teamed up for a show.

In this show, Viera will present works primarily in oil and oil pastels. He brings a unique perspective to his colorful images of landscape and nature that are at once common and complex. "I like to think about the action, the tension, that is behind each image," explains Viera. "The viewer is left to wonder what will happen after the captured moment."

"Moments" play a central role in Eric Rhinehart's work also. In some works, time seems to be on pause -- movement halted for a fraction of time -- compelling the viewer to step into the action. "Some of my pieces are more voyeuristic. You feel like you are looking into someone else's life -- someone else's personal reality -- as they enjoy a meal, a swim or simply get on with the work of their lives."

Join the artists at their opening reception Saturday August 9 from 4 to 8 pm. For more information visit the event website or visit the artist's websites at charlesdavidviera.com and rhinehart-art.com.

Note that for the duration of this show -- the month of August -- the gallery will remain open until 9 pm on Saturdays.
