Barnstone Gallery debuts in First Friday festivities with a gallery opening featuring two local artists on November 4, from 6 to 9 p.m. The show will run through November 30, 2005. Free refreshments and snacks will be served. The public is invited.

Barnstone Gallery, Chester County’s newest art gallery, will make its First Friday debut on November 4, with the opening of a month-long show featuring local artists Mary Ann Weselyk (oil on canvas) and Lisa Muller (clay tile sculpture).

Mary Ann Weselyk is a self-taught still life painter from Chadd’s Ford, PA. Practicing professionally for 16 years, Mary Ann’s interpretational style of still life is influenced by the Old Masters, including Picasso, Matisse, and Van Gogh. Mary Ann works with oil on canvas.

Lisa Muller resides in Phoenixville, PA, and has been a practicing artist for 18 years. Her small-format clay tiles are intimate creations that aspire to capture the vigor and whimsy of life. Her work uses hand-mixed glazes.

In addition to their existing collections at the gallery, this special showing will feature 5 to 6 additional paintings by Mary Ann Weselyk and 18 to 20 additional pieces by Lisa Muller, which will remain for sale at the gallery through the end of November.

The First Friday event will be held in the gallery space Friday, November 4, from 6 to 9 p.m. Both artists will be in attendance.

Barnstone Gallery is located in the upper levels of an historic Chester County barn, and offers contemporary painting, craft, and jewelry from more than 35 nationally-acclaimed artists. With five large exhibit spaces, Barnstone is one of the largest galleries in the region devoted exclusively to contemporary American fine art. In addition to painting and sculpture, Barnstone sells a full complement of original creative arts, including glass, ceramics, and jewelry. Barnstone is the fulfillment of gallery director Lynn Detwiler’s lifelong dream to present fine art in a friendly, down-to-earth setting.

The gallery is open Tuesday through Friday 10 to 6 p.m. and Saturday 12 to 4 p.m.
