On view through December 30 at Les Yeux du Monde, is Florilegia, a gathering of floral paintings by two extremely talented Lynchburg, Virginia artists, Anne Adams Robertson Massie and her daughter Annie Harris Massie. Robertson Massie is well known for her exquisite watercolor paintings, which have received many prestigious awards, including the American Watercolor Society Gold Medal of Honor and the VA Watercolor Society Best in Show award twice. Annie Harris Massie, who has exhibited with Les Yeux du Monde since 2003, is featured in many major public and private collections, including most recently the new Martha Jefferson Hospital and the Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center in Charlottesville. Her exquisite oils capture the moments when light and object seem to merge in an ethereal continuum. She and her brother William McKinnon Massie, Jr. also co-founded McKinnon and Harris in Richmond, which produces fine hand-crafted, Virginia-made garden furniture that has been featured in architectural and design publications such as the New York Times Style Magazine, Architectural Digest, Southern Accents, and Town & Country. This rare opportunity to see paintings by mother and daughter exhibited together should not be missed.
The gallery is open Thursday through Sunday 1 pm - 5 pm and will continue to feature artistic alternatives for gifts through Sunday, December 23 and any day with an appointment.
