“Parting Favor” by Emily LaCour.

Looking for something fun to do?  Enjoy two very special exhibits at Valley House! David A. Dreyer’s: Cold Mountain Observatory and Emily LaCour’s: In the Shade of a Tall Tree will be showcased until April 17.

Both exhibitions are open and have been showcased since March 6. 

Dreyer’s pieces include 18 paintings made from a variety of materials, including charcoal, oil, graphite and chalk on a canvas. He uses blues, whites, yellows and even reds to attract the viewer’s attention to his art. 

Each piece has a name, and description. Dreyer’s paintings are for sale, they range from $4,000-$12,000. There is only 13 paintings left for sale. Many paintings, like “In Cosmic Landscape, Moon Up Rising” the painting can be interpreted both vertically and horizontally. This specific painting shows a face when going horizontally and shows a different perspective when showcased vertically. 

Dreyer’s paintings were supposed to be shown at the Dallas Art Fair, where the Valley House puts up a booth. The fair has been postponed until October due to the pandemic. 

Emily LaCour’s exhibition will also be showcased until mid-April. Her exhibition includes over 40 pieces and contains pieces full of color to those made in black and white. She uses oils, graphite and glue on birch panel or panel to achieve her amazing paintings. 

LaCour’s paintings are for sale, they range between $400-$10,000 depending on the size, materials and the painting. At the moment, there is 34 pieces for sale at the Valley House.

Her paintings borrow from art histories, and she tries to perceives messages through her paintings. In her piece “ Recentering” she portrays people that she has witnessed and places the viewer as the main person looking at the table. 

Both exhibitions are beautiful and offer different stories and perspectives so the viewer can also appreciate the artists feelings.
