Made in America: Marie Hosfield

Neighbors and friends are among a man’s greatest assets in life. Our made in America concept drives us out into our community to make friends with our neighbor’s and through that we discovered a little community in the edge of Blowing Rock called Artist’s Alley, a small community driven around the arts that open their homes/studios once per a year to the world to showcase their talents and wares.

Among the first of the artists we have met there is Marie Hosfield, a artists who works in acrylic paints on canvas. Among the things you will notice with Marie upon first meeting her is a slight mischievous grin of playfulness that translates into her scenes on canvas. Secondly, I found her to have a lot more character and suitability than first met the eye- again I should have looked closer at her art and I would find the same characteristics.

Her art has richness and depth typically found in oils, I in fact at first thought she was painting with oils. In all reality, she uses acrylic paints with finesse and character. She corrected me on my assumption and told me “it’s all in the brush stroke”. Whatever it is, I’m honored to have a friend that is that talented and capable with a brush.

Marie and the Artist Alley gals are scheduled to be here in the shop on the evening of April 15, 2011 for the first Sunset Stroll of Galleries this year during the Blue Ridge Wine and Food Festival. Be sure to come by and visit the ladies and take a bit of  the Pride of Blowing Rock home with you from our local artists this year!
