Alta Vista Gallery hosts new show by award-winning painter Jeremy Sams, hanging now through Sept. 12.

Alta Vista Gallery in Valle Crucis has a new show by award-winning plein air painter Jeremy Sams. “Looking on the Bright Side” is hanging now through September 12, and it can be previewed on the gallery’s Facebook page.

On Saturday, August 25, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the public is invited to drop in at the gallery to enjoy the new show and to hear Sams discuss his art. Refreshments will be served.

As the first-place winner of many juried competitions, art-lovers like to hear from Sams, who is a representational Impressionist chiefly concerned with conveying the light and “striving for a balance, depicting a mood with just a suggestion of detail.”

Sams’ show includes 25 framed acrylics in a variety of sizes (from 8 by 10 inches up to 30 by 40 inches) and a variety of subjects, such as: rivers, sunrises, snow-scenes, rural scenes, and mountain landscapes. 

Meet Sams at reception on Saturday, Aug. 25.
