Chip DuPont: Art and Ale Opening Reception
By Patricia Miller
“Art and Ale” is an event featuring the new works of Chip DuPont, a Magenta Gallery artist, and ale by Cervecería Dos Aves.
Chip DuPont- Art and Ale Opening Reception
Sat, Nov 8, 5-8pm
DuPont has been a professional artist for over 25 years. His original oil pastels have been featured in over 100 juried shows across the US. His art is collected in all 50 states as well as in Europe, Asia, and Mexico.
With a combination of acrylic and pastel, DuPont builds color and texture in layers to create his unique drawings. His landscapes may be a combination of two or three different locales, brought together first in his mind and then on the canvas.
His work captures the beauty of the Mexican landscape, the charm of Colonial San Miguel street scenes, and beautiful florals, each piece complete with a handmade frame designed by DuPont specifically for the art it encompasses. He credits his teenage travels to Mexico with influencing the color palette and the sense of structure in his art and the textural context of his completed works.
Cervecería Dos Aves, San Miguel’s premier craft brewery, will be on hand to offer tastings from a selection of their current award-winning ales. Dos Aves recently won the bronze medal at the 2014 Mexico Professional Beer competition for their Belgian Tripel.
Come and join us and enjoy DuPont’s new work and a sampling of Cervecería’s craft ales this Saturday, November 8, from 5-8pm at Magenta Gallery, Zacateros 26.
