June 20, 2012. Rebecca King’s beautiful oil collection named “There and Back Again” will be presented at Crossnore Fine Arts Gallery from July 3 – July 31, 2012. The show will feature a collection of twenty paintings of the Tuscan Val d’Orcia region of Italy, where artists’ of The Sienese School frequently painted during the Renaissance, in addition to landscapes of the western North Carolina region.
Kings love of landscape painting has taken her across oceans and to her native Appalachian mountains in search of creative ways of painting and is portrayed in her unique art. Rebecca also worked as part of the understudy team for Ben Long’s rendering of the fresco, Suffer the Little Children, completed in 2006 and located in the E.H. Sloop Chapel. Please join us for a reception to honor Rebecca July 28 at the gallery from 11 a.m.- 3 p.m., during the Avery Tour de Art.
