"Reprise

by

Frank Herzog

  The Gallery @ Barr Photographics announces the inaugural installment of the Corner Gallery’s 2019 exhibition series with the return of Radford, Virginia artist Frank Herzog. Frank is exhibiting a collection of watercolor or acrylic paintings entitled “Reprise”.

In his artist statement, Frank reveals, “I have not often been asked what drives me to paint, but it’s not complicated.   I paint because I love it, the creativity of it, the solitude of me, my brushes and my paints!  In a sense, it’s an escape from the information age, the craziness and complications of the fast paced, computer driven world we live in.   If you view my paintings, I hope you will see and feel the serenity, peacefulness and solitude I try to create”.

Reprise” will be celebrated with an opening reception and art talk by Frank Herzog, to which the public is cordially, invited, on Friday, 22 February from 7 - 9:00 PM, in The Gallery @ Barr Photographics, 152 E. Main Street, Abingdon, Virginia.  “Reprise” will hang, and be offered for sale, through 31, March 2019.   The Gallery @ Barr Photographics is housed in the Greenway Trigg Building, located in the heart of Abingdon’s main street historic district.  Please call 276- 628-1486  for further information. 

Artist's Statement

“Painting fulfills my desire to be creative and a need to occasionally escape the craziness of the fast-paced and hectic world we live in.   My style varies and both the watercolors and acrylics are expressive, full of vivid colors and painted in layers, which sometimes makes them appear to be another medium.  They can be realistic, impressionistic, and occasionally abstract”.  Frank also reveals, in response to an interview / jury question, “I have not often been asked what drives me to paint, but it’s not complicated.  I paint because I love it, the creativity of it, the solitude of me, my brushes and my paints!   When you view my paintings, I hope you will see and feel the serenity, peacefulness and solitude I try to create.  Finally, let me say that I am a self taught watercolorist. Yes, I have attended classes and seminars and have read books and articles on painting. But, like most artists, my works express feelings that migrate from somewhere deep inside my psyche. I don't think it's something you can be taught, rather the talent and creativity is just there to be expressed.”
