Our featured artist for Last Saturday Gallery Night in June will be local artist James Stewart. James is a retired architectural designer in the commercial real estate development business who has had a passion for painting since the late 1950's. A native born Texan from Lubbock James graduated from McMurray University as an art major and became a muralist, 'plein air 'and studio painter working in all mediums. His mural 'Texas Under Six Flags still remains in the J. Rollins Library at McMurry University. After retirement, James' kept his interest in painting by producing commission works and golf related illustrations which took a back seat to his many sports interests. In addition to being a competitive golfer he reignited his passion for painting in 2010 and received Best of Show in his first Juried event. He has been painting professionally since 2011 and has been accepted and often awarded in 57 juried invitational, regional, national and international exhibitions. For the last 5 years his works have been on display and sold at the five star restaurant: Eighteen Nighty in Granbury. He is a traditional "Texas Western Landscape Painter" who is rigid in conforming to the 'fundamental principles of art' and believes the success of a painting is found in its composition, accuracy, dramatic impact, collective presentation and most importantly public appreciation. We are please to have such an accomplished artist at D'Vine Wine. Jim will be demonstrating his technique and answering questions during the evening. We hope you stop by and meet James Stewart, enjoy live music by Tina Lawrence. D'Vine Wine will be serving local wine, appetizers and Frozen Wine-a-Rita's While you are in Granbury don't forget to visit all the Galleries of Granbury at Your Private Collection, LGAA Shanley House, St. Helen's on Granbury Square, Lake View Inn and the Dora Lee Langdon Center. Each locations will have a different featured artist.
