Shain Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Darren Young

Shain Gallery in Charlotte, NC, will present the exhibit, Fresh Tonal Paintings by Darren Young, on view from Oct. 7 - 31, 2011. A reception will be held on Oct. 7, from 6-9pm.

Young began his formal art studies at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Painting. In 1998 Young was the recipient of a Graduate Scholarship to Indiana University at Bloomington, earning his Master’s Degree.

Young’s emphasis on painterly brushstroke and strong shifts from tonality to a dramatic juxtaposition of warm and cool tones combine to create imaginary landscapes with an ethereal quality.

For several years, Young has taught art and design at universities and campuses across the United States in: Indiana, Colorado, and North and South Carolina. He has also worked as a painting instructor in France.

Located in beautiful Myers Park, Shain Gallery has been on the forefront of the North Carolina art scene since 1998. The gallery represents many leading national and regional artists, and was recently voted yet again the “Best of the Best” for best Charlotte gallery.
