Nestled along the northern edge of Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina you’ll find the quaint town of Blowing Rock, the home of Blowing Rock Frameworks & Gallery, which will soon host an exhibition of new works by Jason Drake.
On view August 14-26, “Close to Home” is a fantastic exhibition featuring both figurative and landscape paintings by artist Jason Drake. Although the painter will present watercolor, oil, and egg tempera work, Drake’s characteristic technique — with crisp, tightly rendered subjects — can be seen in each.
Via the gallery, “[Drake] is a penetrating observer of the quiet, simple framework that makes up life in this region, and his compositions evoke the emotion he suffuses into each painting. A reception will be held on Saturday, August 19 from 5 to 8 p.m. where you can meet the artist.”
