There will be an opening reception, with light refreshments for the artist on Tuesday October 2, from 5:30-7:30pm, all are free to come. Et  began painting later in life when she worked on a degree in painting and printmaking at UNCG in the 1990’s. Her work is an emotional and spiritual response to nature or to imagined or subconscious subjects.  Et’s use of color is intuitive and an integral part of her work in watercolor, oil, and acrylics. Known for her landscapes, she also enjoys painting mindscapes and an occasional abstract. She has been an active member of the Randolph Arts Guild for decades, has served on the board and various committees, and paints on a regular basis with the Monday morning painting group. If you can’t make it out to any of those, the Sara Smith Self Gallery will be open during our normal business hours to look at the show! We are open Monday – Wednesday 10am-5pm, Thursday – Friday 10am-7pm, Saturday 10am-5pm and closed on Sundays.


Marcus Lawson, “Pen and Ink, and Then Some”

Free Opening Reception: Tuesday, November 6, 5:30 pm

Lunch and Learn in the Gallery Wednesday, November 21st, Noon

Marcus Lawson is a  local artist, art teacher and author.  He first found a love of art in his high school art class at Randleman High School, but continued to pursue his craft throughout the years following his education at Appalachian State.  It wasn’t until his work with the Randolph Arts Guild that he thought it would be possible to host his own solo art show.  Marcus gathers inspiration for his pen and inks from his students and the parts of their lives they share with him.  Marcus also enjoys painting with acrylics and drawing with Prismacolor color pencils, and draws inspiration from anything colorful or that has a hidden message.  Much of his inspiration comes from his art students at Uwharrie Ridge 6-12 School.  Marcus currently lives in Asheboro.  He is very blessed with wonderful friends, family, students and coworkers, and thanks them for their continued support!  Stop by the Sarah Smith Self Gallery on Tuesday, November 6th for the opening reception at 5:30 pm.  View the work throughout the month of November, and join Marcus on Wednesday, November 21 at noon to hear about his inspirations.  Bring your own lunch!
