Art at Lake City Museum Show

Two paintings from my Coffee Series are currently on show in Lake City at the Bean Market Museum. The city is having their Heritage Music and Art Festival all week.

These were favorites from the solo shows I had at The Richland County Public Library and at Gotham on Main in 2010. This painting is "Visual Passion" and the other one on display is it's co-ordinating piece named "In a Stew"(not pictured here) Both pieces are mixed media featuring my watercolor women in a photographic image painting into the mixed media coffee inspired collage on 30x24 museum quality thick sided wall canvas. They will be permanently displayed at a prominent office in Lake City.

In addition to my art, you can see lovely artwork created by other prominent SC artists such as
painter Stephen McCrea, Cigar Box Guitars created by Brandon Cooper, Woodz Art by Ann Page, furniture created using ancient cypress by L. P. Rogers, a huge oil painting of heaven by Adam Dial, paintings by Lynda Engish, Gaye Ham, Jane Jackson, Neil A McClendon, Jr. , interesting sculptures creating fun functional furniture pieces by Alex Palkovich, paintings by Jackie Wukela and a wonderful wood sculpture painting by Tiffany Thomas.

The First Picture (at top) was at the reception held this past Wed. evening Sept. 21, 2011; Tiffany Thomas created a live painting on fellow artist and model Symon Gibson. They had a backdrop canvas which they created a Jackson Pollack meets Van Gogh, with Stephen in front being painted into the picture! It was wonderful to watch.

Yours Truly,
