Photographer Robert Merhaut is the new artist-in-residence at North Gate Vineyard. He will host a public reception featuring his exhibit, “Here and There, Continuation,” from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 8.
The show features a collection of photographs covering a wide range of subjects. The photographs will be on display through July 3.
Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Merhaut has more than 25 years of experience as an artist, photographer and business person. His passion for photography follows a family tradition inherited from his uncle, a professional photographer.
The North Gate Vineyard Artist-in-Residence program was created by vineyard owners Mark and Vicki Fedor to support area artists by providing a venue to show their artwork in a public, formal setting. The program also provides a facility for the artists to conduct other art-related activities such as educational seminars, instructional classes or in-depth lectures on their artwork or creative process. Displaying their work in such a way provides flexibility for the artist to work at and achieve certain goals they may have in their profession. The vineyard is located at 16031 Hillsboro Road, north of Purcellville.
