Four women sat near the front of the theater. The 3-D documentary movie about Egyptian mummies just concluded. The four friends lingered, remarking about the curious red and blue lensed glasses and discussing what was, perhaps, their first experience in a 3-D movie. Carter Stuart is a storyteller. In the straight lines of a soldier's shoulder, a bit of animated gossip between three Greek cooks, wrinkles that mark wisdom and experience in a face, the old crackled keys of a piano that's past it's prime -- she communicates stories in her paintings, drawings and photographs. On Wednesday my husband and I drove to King Family Vineyards. It was a gorgeous drive. for the opening of Carter's solo show featuring a selection of her expressive pen & ink drawings, her beautiful tonal paintings & vibrant photographs. Her pieces will be on display August 1 - September 30 at the King Family Vineyards North Gallery, 6550 Roseland Farm, Crozet, Virginia 22932. I recommend a visit to enjoy a glass of wine, take in the gorgeous landscapes, and "hear" the stories hung on the wall.
