Troika Gallery in downtown Easton announces the opening of “CONCOURS d’TROIKA: The Finest of Fine Art,” a major show featuring a collection of exciting new works by select artists exclusively represented by Troika. The show opens Friday, July 10 from 5-8pm (Note: due to the July 4th holiday, the opening reception for this show will be held on July 10, the SECOND Friday of July rather than the usual opening during First Friday Gallery Walk.)
By definition, the word concours is a “contest of elegance,” a fitting description as the walls of Troika Gallery display the crème de la crème of the region’s most elite artists. This sophisticated gallery specializes in original, classically-based fine art and offers an unparalleled array of diverse styles and media. Subjects include landscapes, marine, wildlife, still life, figures, florals, fantasy, and figures. Selected artists for CONCOURS d’TROIKA are: Kenn Backhaus, John Ebersberger, Laura Era, Kevin Fitzgerald, David Buckley Good, Andrew Schuler Guerin, John Davis Held, Mark Hiles, Jeanette LeGrue, Raoul Middleman, Terry Miller, Victor Nizovtsev, Gary Robertson, William Storck, Carol Lee Thompson, Paula Waterman, and Jennifer Heyd Wharton. “CONCOURS d’TROIKA” runs through August 25.
Gallery owners Jennifer Heyd Wharton and Laura Era have high expectations for the exhibit. “This is certainly one of the finest shows we have ever curated. We are thrilled to present the masterful work of these exceptional artists to our collectors and clientele. CONCOURS d’TROIKA is destined to be one of our premier shows. We can’t wait to fill our gallery with these awesome paintings!”
