Special exhibits are offered regularly throughout the year. These exhibits offer an opportunity for customers to meet the artists and learn about their current bodies of work.
Tim and Lisa are self-taught folk artists who, for nearly 20 years, have shared their Rowan Country farm/studio with their menagerie of pets, family and friends, wild turkeys and owls, and many other plants and creatures. Once a rhododendron farm, the property, now called St. Peter’s Farm, is the setting where recycled materials are upcycled into colorful and whimsical works of art.
The couple began painting collaboratively nearly 15 years ago for a show at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Tim’s forty years of experience as a landscape designer and builder often come in handy. Both have a love for bright colors and often use found and reclaimed materials to create their work. Favorite subjects include cats and dogs, flowers, chickens and mermaids, flags, and the Statue of Liberty. Tim builds and puts together most of the pieces while Lisa creatively adds paint in ways that only she can. Both are always involved with the designs and enjoy the process of collaborating.
Both Tim and Lisa greatly appreciate the support that their customers have given them over the years as well as the camaraderie their fellow artists have provided. As they say, “those have been some interesting times and we’re not done yet.”
