Jerald Melberg Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by William Partridge Burpee & Thomas McNickle

Jerald Melberg Gallery in Charlotte, NC, will present the exhibit, William Partridge Burpee and Thomas McNickle, on view from Jan. 21 through Mar. 10, 2012.

A member of the American and National Watercolor Societies, Thomas McNickle says, “Watercolor has been my most direct and immediate connection to the landscape for over forty years. I use it either in the field or in the studio almost daily. I have filled hundreds of sketchbooks with it and also painted major pieces, but still it remains the most capricious and thrilling of mediums.”

McNickle’s work has been exhibited in over forty museum and gallery exhibitions and can be found in numerous collections including the Butler Institute of American Art, the Hoyt Institute of Fine Art, Vero Beach Center for the Arts and Kansas State University.

Alongside watercolors by McNickle, the gallery is featuring pastels and paintings by William Partridge Burpee (1846-1940), a great American Impressionist landscape painter. Burpee exhibited at such prestigious institutions as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, DC, and his works can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, MA, Cheekwood, TN, the Columbia Museum of Art, the Louisiana State University Museum of Art, the William A. Farnsworth Museum and the Portland Museum of Art.
