Noted plein air painter Valerie Craig is exhibiting at Newman and Saunders Galleries.
Valerie Craig, the noted plein air painter from St. Davids, currently has a solo exhibit at Newman and Saunders Galleries in Wayne. The show, which features oil paintings of landscapes and buildings painted locally, in Maine and in Ireland, runs through Jan. 5. Prices for artwork range from $600 to $3,500. "She's local, popular and really good," said Drew Saunders, owner of the gallery on Bloomingdale Ave. Saunders described Craig's work as "emotional impressionism." "She has such an emotive feeling in her work," he said. Newman and Saunders Galleries has been in Wayne for 32 years. The fine art gallery is one of the few still standing outside of Philadelphia. It is open Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment.
