Back in the summer of 2016, we exhibited the beautiful paintings of Frances McEwan Monfort, the sister and protege of local artist Michael McEwan. Since we loved her work so much, it only made sense that we would look for more of Michael’s students to display here at Argo’s–which brings us to the wonderful paintings of John Wilson. John’s impressionistic landscapes are truly charming and bring warmth to our store.
