Tuesday, September 19, 2023 – Kristen Peyton

Krisen is a painter of color, light and space. She works from direct observation, imbuing her paintings with sight-specific atmosphere and painterly improvisation. Her paintings are poetic compositions that pay particular attention to the underlying geometry and specificity of color discovered in the commonplace environs of her home and community.

Peyton earned a Master of Arts in Painting from the University of New Hampshire in May 2017 and a Bachelor of Arts from the College of William and Mary in 2012. She worked as Curator of the Flippo Gallery at Randolph-Macon College from 2017 - 2023 and Professor of painting, drawing and printmaking at Randolph-Macon College and the College of William Mary. She was a Four Pillars Resident and Visiting Critic at the Mount Gretna School of Art in Mount Gretna, Pennsylvania in 2020 and a student at Jerusalem Studio School in Civita Castellana, Italy in 2017. Currently, she spends her time painting and caring for her two young daughters.

Tuesday, October 17, 2023 - Daniel Gong, Portrait Artist

Daniel Gong lives in Midlothian with his lovely wife and two sons. As a tent making church pastor, he started his art studio after he and his family moved to Richmond for art teaching and a painting commission.

He received his academic training 35 years ago on various media and styles by a group of professional artists. He studied both Western and Eastern art styles, and taught art in public school in China. Later on, he came to the States for theological education and received three degrees. An area of interest is art and Christianity, especially during the Byzantine time. He published a book in this area in Mainland China in 2011. He continues to learn through reading and visiting the masterpieces in museums. He was influenced by many artists from the Byzantine, the Renaissance and the Impressionism eras, including artists such as Rembrandt, Sargent, El Greco, Renoir, Monet and Kinstler.

When he paints, he favors portrait art. He likes to catch the soul of humans, that is the image of God through creation, and the influence of God’s lifelong grace, and healing.

Tuesday, January 16, 2024 -- Chuck Larivey OPA, Oil Painter

Born in 1941, Chuck resides with his wife, Brenda in Richmond, Virginia, where his studio is located. Larivey is a daily painter and a Signature Member of Oil Painters of America. He returned to oil painting on March 16, 2009, after a long career as a residential and commercial interior designer. Basically a self-taught artist, his lifelong interest in the masters is evident by Larivey’s sensitive approach to light, color, and form which fall somewhere between classical and impressionism. His paintings are typically large scale with a wide subject range. He is known and collected for his Koi and Lily paintings, and Venice and atmospheric seascapes and landscapes.

There are two basic approaches seen in Larivey’s style. When in the mood for detail, a more classical approach emerges. However, the most prevalent is abstract realism. Larivey’s brand is fluid abstract brushwork that develops remarkably realistic/dimensional effects at a distance. Regardless of the technique, his real subjects are color, movement, luminous light effects, reflections, and atmospheric transparency.

Larivey paints in series and rotates his subjects to keep the mind fresh. He feels a good subject or series must develop a storyline with the ability to expand over time. In his experience, there are exploratory paintings, sometimes called studies, that lead to or culminate in one or more major works and then pause. Pauses or subject rotation are a natural and necessary way to keep any subject fresh. He has this belief that a painting should draw you in from a distance and be touchable closeup and personal, and without exception presented properly to the viewing public.

Larivey works under the banner of Swimming-in-Paint at Crossroads Art Center where he can be found weekends mentoring and coaching a group of like-minded artists who are pursuing art as a career move.

Tuesday, February 20, 2024 - Peg Sheridan, Watercolorist

Peg started drawing and painting when she was a little girl. Her Mom was a painter, and Peg has a distinct memory as a small child of sitting next to her and painting while she painted.

Peg started her own business, “Inspirations”, in 1997. She had resigned from a job as a Wildlife Biologist to stay home with her three children, who were all young. She began to paint and teach from home, and loved it. Peg now paints in watercolors mostly. She sells her work, and also does commissions. She also teaches painting and craft classes to adults and children. She feels so lucky and states “I love what I do”! She cannot wait to get up in the morning and start the day.
