An art show by longtime McCloud resident Virgil Harton is scheduled for this coming Saturday, Oct. 17, from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Black Bear Building in Mount Shasta.

Virgil Harton Watercolor

You can meet Virgil Harton and see his watercolor paintings featuring scenes from around the world and local McCloud sites. Original watercolors and giclee prints are available at The Gallery and online at: thegalleryinmtshasta.com.

Harton has been an architect and watercolorist. He has painted pictures from his travels around Europe and the United States. He was commissioned to do artwork such as the image of the Lavender Farms found on their product packaging.

He was commissioned by the Hearst Corporation to paint images from Hearst Ranch, a supplier of free-range, all-natural, grass-fed and grass-finished beef.

New prints from Hearst Ranch will be available for purchase at the show, as well as new images that Horton painted of quaint local McCloud scenes.
