The Art Cellar Gallery is hosting their annual “Cocktails and Conversation” with William Dunlap, part of the Afternoons with the Artist Series, on Sunday, August 12th from 2 to 4pm. Dunlap’s stories, artworks and lively conversation will fill the gallery. 

William Dunlap has strong connections to the High Country from his years teaching at Appalachian State University early in his career. Though he left teaching to focus solely on his art career he has remained strongly tied to the area and many images from across the mountain region appear in his paintings. Dunlap describes his work as hypothetical realism; places and things that may not be real, but could be. He might place a North Carolina barn on an open stretch of road from a drive through Virginia or include signs and mile markers from other travels. All woven with his keen eye for detail, artistic expression of color and visual engagement.

William Dunlap’s paintings capture his personal history, the southern landscape, and much more through his unique style, rich color and distinct perspectives that are common lines through his work.  The Mississippi native is full of Southern Charm, balanced with quick wit and a bold, outspoken nature ready to discuss art, life, and beyond. “Cocktails and Conversation”  Sunday event will be an opportunity to talk with the artist surrounded by his most recent works on paper, he will discuss his artwork and will also read a short excerpt or two from his most recent book. “Short Mean Fiction”  was inspired by the artist’s journals and features rich stories of fiction and sketches; a small glimpse into the mind of William Dunlap. Everyone is encourage to attend this free gallery event  and to come see and speak with the artist.
