Free art shows in Blowing Rock! Meet different High Country artists each week and buy original art directly. This week: Randy Blake Clontz, Oil Portraits, Landscapes, and Still Life.
Randy was born in Hickory, NC and showed uncommon artistic ability even as a youth. At the age of 12, he honed his basic art and design skills with a correspondence course through the Famous Artist School for Talented Young People. After pursuing art education in Detroit and work opportunities in Chicago, Randy relocated back home to Hickory in 2002 to create beautiful oil landscapes of the North Carolina mountains. Randy’s commissioned oil portraits appear in private, corporate, and public collections in Chicago, Michigan, California, & North Carolina. If you’ve ever considered commissioning an oil painting, come meet Randy this week at Edgewood Cottage in Blowing Rock.
