Boardwine, Simmons Featured at 606 Gallery

September 15 – October 15, 2010

Opening Sept. 15: Lisa Boardwine and June Simmons will be the featured artists through Oct. 15. Boardwine from Grundy, Va., works in oils, watercolor, pastel, and mixed media.

She says, "Painting is a reflection of my passion for art and an expression of my soul. Whether portraying the beauty and grace of a ballerina, the delicate personality of a flower, an inspirational landscape, a local landmark or overlapping shapes and handmade papers into a unique collage, I hope to show the viewer a new way of seeing things through my own artistic journey."

Simmons, a native of Bristol, Va., sought work outside our area in the 1960s. When she retired in the 1990s, she began studying oil and pastel painting. She now lives in Telford, Tenn., where she maintains a studio. Her subjects range from flowers to wild animals in the wild.
