The Glencoe Mansion, Museum & Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of its newest gallery show, “Something Old, Something New,” featuring the watercolor and acrylic paintings of Frank Herzog and will celebrate the opening with a reception for Herzog on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.

Frank Herzog, originally from the northeast, now calls Radford his home town. Herzog displayed an interest in art from an early age. As a child, he would handle the long, cold winter days of eastern Pennsylvania by drawing. His teachers and family encouraged him to pursue his artistic interests, a passion that he has to this day. Eventually he found watercolors, teaching himself to manage the flexible and dynamic medium. Family obligations and changing interests made Herzog put his creativity on the proverbial back burner, but for many years now he has painted continuously.

Herzog believes his watercolors are his strongest suit, yet he continues to experiment with other media. Most recently he has been working with acrylic on canvas and board. Frank Herzog has displayed in many local galleries and juried shows. He has even had a work purchased for display at the Lance Corporation headquarters in Charlotte. For his show at the Glencoe Mansion, Herzog chose the name “Something Old, Something New” because it is a showing of older works, some never displayed before, and his newest creations.

Describing his love of painting Herzog says:
“I paint because I love it, the creativity of it, the solitude of me, my brushes and my paints! In a sense, it’s an escape from the information age, the craziness and complications of the fast paced, computer driven world we live in. If you view my paintings, I hope you will see and feel the serenity, peacefulness and solitude I try to create.”

Everyone is welcome to attend the art opening. There is no admission charge.

“Something Old, Something New” will be on display at Glencoe through the end of October.
