Providence Gallery in historic Myers Park will present a solo exhibition of impressionistic paintings by Charlotte's clothier and artist Paul Simon during April.
Anthology: 2001-2011 will showcase Simon's use of vibrant color in his interpretations of the landscapes of the Provence region of France and Sicily and Tuscany in Italy, as well as the mountains of North and South Carolina. Figurative and floral still-life works also are featured in this show. Simon's Anthology series celebrates the 10th anniversary of his painting career and will be his third solo show at Providence Gallery. Both of Simon's previous Providence Gallery solo shows sold out.
