Giles Art Council opens new art show at New River Grille
Work of Newport artist Lois Stephens will be on display at New River Grille’s Gallery at the Grille in Pembroke.
Stephens said that since she was a little girl and her near-sightedness was corrected, she’s been “gazing at the world.” She remains fascinated by the nuances of light, shadow and color. Stephens works in a variety of media. Her work currently focuses on capturing the beauty of the landscapes in her native Giles County and in the New River Valley area, working mostly in oil and acrylics.
Her paintings have been shown at Virginia Tech’s Corporate Research Center, Mill Mountain Coffee and Tea, Kent Square and at Zeppoli Restaurant in Blacksburg as well as at Giles Arts Council’s annual Art on the Lawn juried show.
Stephens said that her work “is representational.”
“These expressions reflect a love of the outdoors, the natural world and this beautiful home we call the New River Valley,” she said.
She hopes to convey a mood that “connects with the viewer and in a small way, evokes the peacefulness and soul’s nourishment that nature provides.”
Stephens show opened at the Gallery at the Grille on January 2 and will run through March 5. Giles Arts Council invites everyone to stop by New River Grille and to take a few minutes viewing these wonderful paintings.
