Local artist Ron Courtney has one-man show
The Richmond Public Library will host a one-man show of paintings by Urbanna artist Ron Courtney in the Gellman Room at the main library location at 1st and Franklin streets. The show is called “Male Pattern Boldness” and will feature Courtney’s abstract oils and acrylics with two distinct themes: song paintings and nonscapes.
His “Song Paintings” are romantic, richly-colored works inspired by specific lyrics from songwriters such as Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton and others. His “nonscapes” are more formal paintings that are similar to landscapes but are not actual landscapes. Courtney’s work has been exhibited in various juried shows in Richmond and at a number of galleries in the Chesapeake Bay area.
The show runs through April and May during normal library hours. The opening is Friday, April 4, from 6:30-9 p.m.
