New Watercolors by W.F. Stone, Jr. -"Mostly Italian" at CAA in September


The Carmel Art Association will present a show of recent watercolor paintings by W. F. Stone, Jr., most of which were painted as a result of a July trip to the hillside towns of Umbria, Italy. The display will be in the Beardsley Room beginning Thursday, September 2, through Wednesday, October 6th, 1999. The public is invited to an opening reception and 70th birthday celebration of the artist on Saturday, September 11 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Carmel Art Association Galleries on Dolores between 5th and 6th.

W.F. Stone, Jr. has been painting for 40 years; he has been a member of the Carmel Art Association for 27 years. He paints in a distinctive stylized realism with emphasis on color and design in his works. The current show focuses on the hillside towns of Umbria in central Italy and captures the feeling of the tile rooftops and stone buildings so prevalent in the area. Whether it is the coastal fishing villages of Britain and New England, or the timeworn villages of Portugal, Stone's paintings capture the essence of the land and infuse it with a burst of color and detail.
