An Opening in Charlotte
McColl has specialized in fine American and European paintings, with a primary focus on select works from the 19th and early 20th Centuries. They are now expanding into what they describe as "classical contemporary."
In celebration, they are launching a new gallery space in Charlotte, at 126 Cottage Street, with a Grand Opening reception this Thursday, March 29th, from 6-8 p.m. The reception is by invitation, but do call the gallery at 704-333-5983 if you'd like to attend.
I'm very pleased to be included among the McColl artists, both the quick and the dead---among them many of my heroes.
One wonders---- when the lights are turned off, the doors locked, and the staff departed, what Inness, Ryder, Hawthorne and their friends will have to say to each other about the young whippersnappers now sharing their space at McColl.
I hope they'll be kind, and remember that Ruysdael, Van Goyen, and Claude, in their turn, probably had some things to say about those raucous 19th- and early 20th-century youngsters, too.
