Mary Draper Ingles Plein Air Art Exhibit

Glencoe Mansion, Museum & Gallery, June 12 - August 3, 2018

Reception June 12, 5:30 - 7:30PM

The Long Way Home, Inc. The Mary Draper Ingles Remembrance Day: Celebrating Heritage, Music and the Arts, and the Radford Heritage Foundation are sponsoring a plein air exhibit at the Glencoe Mansion, Museum & Gallery from June 12 until August 3.

During April and May, 9 local artists visited the Ingles Tavern, the Mary Draper Ingles statue, the Ingles Farm and other locations in the area connected with Mary's story. See their work in watercolor, acrylic, ink, oil and more. My contribution to the show includes 4 watercolors and a block print of the tavern.

Media

Photography

I photograph the telling details of human effort, as shown in built spaces, disused signs, surfaces with history.

Watercolor

My subject is the feel of a place, the vibe of a found still life, the quiet of a place temporarily uninhabited.

Comics

I make comics out of everything. Check out "Life Was Hard," a memoire zine, and "You Can't Do That With Comics," a zine of experimental comics.

Block Prints

I like the simplicity, both in terms of detail and the balance of dark and light.

Collage

The randomness of gelatine plate prints leads me to unusual collages.

Games

Game mechanics and theme design fascinate me.
