Art Exhibit and Opening Reception at Inn BoonsBoro
March 26 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Make sure to put this one on your calendar! Inn BoonsBoro is proud to feature three brilliant and talented local artists and photographers at an elegant Art Opening. From 1-3 in the afternoon you will have the opportunity to meet the artists, ask questions and discuss their work with them. And to make a delightful afternoon even more perfect, you’ll get to stroll around the elegant common areas of the Inn, mingle with friends and enjoy light refreshments. This is the fun event you’ve been looking for to kick off your spring- grab your husband or mom or bestie and plan an Inn day, and follow it up with a visit to GIB, Turn the Page and dinner at Vesta!
Gary Rudisill was born in Alaska but grew up in Gettysburg PA where he lives with his wife Nicole and three children. He is a multi-talented artist with a thriving screen printing and embroidery business, but what you’ll see at the Inn are his lush, evocative drawings. His ‘Ireland’ series is a best-seller, some even finding their way into Nora Roberts’ personal collection. His ‘Aillidh’, a 12×16 charcoal drawing of the famous Rock of Cashel in Ireland, won the North Light Books Strokes of Genius Award. Aillidh is the Gaelic word for beautiful, and you will feel not only the beauty but the power and mysticism when you stand in front of Gary’s piece.
Cath Howard is a watercolor artist whose work will pour serenity into your soul. We are pleased to present her ocean abstract series, including ‘Serene Energy’ pictured here. Each painting features the four elements of sun, sky, birds and water, which bring movement and energy to the scene as well as their trademark peace. Cath lives with her family in Libertytown MD where she works in her studio the Seven Sisters Gallery, and teaches in several venues including Frederick Community College’s Institute for Learning in Retirement. We could not be happier to welcome Cath to GIB, and to showcase her work at the Inn.
William R. Fox Photography is one of the most popular photographers at GIB. Bill Fox is enamored with history, nature and music, and all of his passions show up in his gorgeous work. His love for Mother Earth is front and center, whether he’s taking pictures of the Antietam Battlefield, incredible wildlife shots or capturing rainbows and full moons. His work will remind you that we all need to slow down, look up and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us every day.
