My Studio: Enter At Your Own Risk
Group Show

Artist Demos/Gallery Talks TBA

Sunset River Marketplace celebrates art and artists with ‘My Studio: Enter At Your Own Risk’ group show


Sunset River Marketplace art gallery in Calabash, NC is presenting a group exhibition, My Studio: Enter At Your Own Risk, from May 5 through June 5. According to gallery owner Ginny Lassiter, “Art studios can be chaotic, energetic, emotional places! We’ve invited several of our own artists to share their working studios with us in oil, acrylic, collage and other media. This is going to be a fun and insightful look into the life of an artist! We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we are!”


Participating artists include Ortrud Tyler, acrylics; Sherry Godfrey, pottery and acrylics; Vicki Neilon, acrylics; Ruth Cox, oils; Roseann Bellinger, acrylics; Ginny Lassiter, acrylics; Adrienne Watts, watercolor monoprint and acrylics; Diane Larson, oils; Carol Iglesias, oils; Jenny McKinnon Wright, oils; Rachel Sunnell, acrylics; and Linda Young, mixed media.


Lassiter says, “I’ve always been curious about how other artists work, whether it’s in a dedicated studio or in a corner of the kitchen. Some, like our oil instructor, Ruth Cox, work in a studio overflowing with memories, materials, and inspiration. Others like Roseann Bellinger prefer a simpler atmosphere, with everything in its place. I’m somewhere in the middle!”


Throughout the month-long show, Lassiter says, there will be pop up painting demos and short gallery talks by some of the artists. They will be announced on the gallery’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
