The Fearrington Granary is excited to welcome local artist Shannon Bueker for a reception on Wednesday, January 23rd from 6-8p.m. This reception will kick off the Granary’s presentation of Shannon’s work, which will decorate the eatery through February. Come join us for the reception or stop by any time during February to see these beautiful paintings.
“This group of paintings is from a series I think of as “Trees I Know.” I paint trees more and more these days. I draw all the time and my style is linear; that is, I see lines and contours much more easily than I do lights and shadows. The lines of trees develop easily from my “doodle” lines while sketching,” said Shannon.
“I live at the edge of a forest in Chatham County. I paint what I see in my backyard, and I paint when I travel. I paint outside on my screen porch or in the field. Watercolors are very light and portable. These paintings are just a few of the trees I have painted over the past few years. I currently have several large acrylic on canvas studies of trees going in the studio also.
I am a professional artist and have a BFA in studio art from the University of Texas at Austin. I have lived and worked in Chatham County for 19 years. My studio is open by appointment and for open studio events in the spring and fall.”
