Mason House Gallery Art Exhibition
October 1 - October 26
“Through Lens and Paint – A Collection of a Couple’s Artistic Interpretations” is the show set to be displayed in the Mason House Gallery at the General Morgan Inn Oct. 1-26. The show is sponsored by the Greeneville Arts Council and the General Morgan Inn.
This unique show introduces photography by Philip “P.B.” Bachman and artistic renditions of his work by his wife, Amanda Bachman. The couple resides in Johnson City. P.B. Bachman is financial advisor with BCS Wealth Management in Johnson City, and Amanda is with Capital Auto Finance in Kingsport.
According to the Bachmans, “The feature pieces tell the story of different journeys, near and far.” There will be other pieces from each of their portfolios as well.
On Oct. 8 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. the Bachmans and the Greeneville Arts Council invite the public to a meet-and-greet. Guests may enjoy light refreshments and talk with the artists.
This is the first show that the couple has ever offered together. In September 2016, Amanda Bachman did her first art show, “Expressions,” at the Nelson Fine Art Center in Johnson City. She held that show in conjunction with Michael Kaal, a Johnson City photographer.
“At that time,” said Amanda Bachman, “I realized with P.B.’s love of photography, we could do something similar.” As for her art, Bachman says, “My art relaxes me, fulfills me; it is difficult to explain. It’s a gift, and I don’t take it for granted. I cherish my gift.”
This isn’t the couple’s first art project together. They worked together in 2012 when he wrote a book, “Ferrari FXX Inside Out,” and she illustrated it for him.
P.B. Bachman explained that the couple has enjoyed traveling together through their marriage, and these pieces demonstrate that interest and love of traveling.
The works will be on display and may be purchased through Oct. 26. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
