A talented painter (and a long-time cherished friend of Principle Gallery) with a unique style and a thoughtful and philosophical soul, GC Myers is back in Alexandria this weekend to join us for the opening of “Traveler,” his 15th solo exhibition at the gallery. “Traveler” is a gorgeous collection of works in a wide array of sizes, and we heartily encourage anyone who can to join the artist and the folks at Principle Gallery tonight for the opening reception, beginning at 6:30 PM!
Each of the 58 paintings in the show is unique and beautiful, but we thought we’d take a moment to share a fun fact about one of them: “The Ferryman,” a 9×5 acrylic painting included in this year’s GC Myers exhibition, happens to be the cover of a novel! Author William Thomas Simpson was seeking an image of a ferryman when he discovered Myers’ work, and contacted him to commission the book cover.
