‘Belvedere Arts’ Exhibit to Feature Chris Pierce, Sandy Applegate

The artworks of Sandy Applegate and Chris Pierce will be featured in a new show at Belvedere Arts. The show will run from Saturday, February 10 until Saturday, April 28.

The opening reception will be held Saturday, February 10 from 3-6 pm. Come and meet these remarkable artists while you enjoy the music of Steve Blechschmidt, tour the gallery and workshop and help yourself to refreshments in a comfortable neighborhood environment.

Chris Pierce will be presenting his turned-wood vessels in a variety of shapes, sizes and wood types. Every piece of Chris’ work comes with an interesting story, both concerning the origin of each piece of wood he creates from and his deep love of the natural material. Chris will be happy to share his stories with you this Saturday.

Sandy Applegate’s painting series “Ravens and Orbs” is based on Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” and includes an array of wonderful images that include both acrylic and mono print works. Sandy will be present to read the poem “The Raven” at the opening…
