Pastelist Alec Hall at Art League of Henderson County
March 12, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
After many years in the veterinary field, it seemed natural that Alec Hall would choose animals as his primary subject when he took up painting 20 years ago. When he retired from his veterinary practice and turned to art full time, he developed as much of a passion for pastel painting as he has for animals. At the Sunday, March 12, meeting of the Art League of Henderson County, Hall will speak about the history of pastels as an art medium and the similarities and differences between pastels and other fine art media. Many of his paintings will be on display in the Grace Etheredge Gallery, which is the main conference room of the Opportunity House, 1411 Asheville Highway, Hendersonville. Guests are welcome at no charge. A reception will begin about 1:30 p.m.
