A New Leaf Gallery will showcase Phillip Ramsey and George Mcdonald as the March and April Guest Artists. The Guest exhibit begins Friday, March 1st. The normal First Friday Guest reception will be held the following month on April 5th.
Philip Ramseyhas been painting professionally since 1991. He began as a muralist in Virginia and North Carolina and continued with that pursuit for 18 years, then shifted his focus to the fine art of original impressionist oil paintings of landscapes, cityscapes, figurative, and still life. Private Collectors from the United States, Canada, Thailand, and Malawi own commissioned pieces of Ramsey originals in addition to purchased works from several fine art galleries.
George Mcdonald is a man of the woods. He began turning wood in 2014 after retiring from carpentry contracting. He trained with Morris Schlesinger, a world class wood turner who taught him the skill of turning bowls in trade for George’s home grown and foraged mushrooms. George dedicates his winters to turning fine woods into useable items that are sold from Spring to Fall at festivals and farmers markets - along with his mushrooms!
