Fine Artist Bruce Couch Final Friday Reception @ Studio 180 Salon
Jul 25 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us for this upcoming Cary Art Loop Final Friday art crawl July 25th as we host fine artist Bruce Couch for his second engagement – “Cars were an accident”.

From Au Courant Magazine:

“I’ve lived 17 places in four years… always one step ahead of the bulldozer,” Bruce says. I can already tell that I’m gonna like this guy. As a young man living in Virginia (near Lynchburg), Bruce liked to spend his time along the James River, among warehouses and railroad tracks. He couldn’t resist trips downtown to Pete’s News Stand looking for the latest issue of Mad Magazine.

As a high school student, Bruce knew he was interested in art, but with an art teacher who had no faith in him and a father who was convinced that you couldn’t make a living as an artist, Bruce soon found himself in the armed forces. After joining the Army, it wasn’t long before he was fighting a war in South Korea. Bruce had a restless feeling that he just couldn’t shake. He soon attended Richmond Professional Institute, now known as Virginia Commonwealth University, to follow his calling. At the time, the school was in transitioning from a fine arts college to more of a commercial art school which happened to be just what he needed, though he couldn’t have known that at the time.

After graduation, and a successful career as an art director in Rocky Mount for four years, Bruce was thrilled to win the Addy Award for a billboard he had painted for ‘Sports World’. Remember, this was a time when roller skating rinks were the place to be on a Friday night—billboards were still hand painted.**

Though he is extremely accomplished at commercial art and can hand paint a door sign like nobody’s business, his heart lies in depicting people, especially blues musicians. He prefers working on large scale pieces, working with charcoal and integrating color pastels. He likes to work quickly, with as few lines as possible, for fear of forgetting an important detail or overthinking the whole thing. He doesn’t want his art to become “labor”, preferring to just drop what he’s doing and get the creation out of his head as quickly as possible before it has the chance to be tarnished—one piece at a time.”

Bruce is currently displaying at Studio 180 Salon beginning in June through August.

Please join us this month for our final Friday art show featuring the Watercolors of
Rocky Alexander and a special introduction to the work of the Cary Visual Arts organization.

You will not want to miss this good evening!

Last month’s open house was such fun, over 300 guest came and we had as usual music, food, wine, laughter, art, conversation and such a wonderful evening of relationships. In the spirit of our desire to promote beauty in our town we have invited our resident artist Rocky Alexander to showcase some of her very recent and amazing transparent watercolors. They are so nice that artists in our gallery are buying them!

In addition, we are promoting this month the Cary Visual Arts! The mission of this fantastic organization is to promote, inspire, encourage, and support visual arts for the uplifting of the human spirit in the Cary community. Stop by the Waverly Artists Group Gallery on July 25th, 6 to 9pm,  to meet these wonderful people and hear more about what they are doing to add beauty to our town.
