The public is invited to the gallery opening reception from 6 until 8 p.m. Thursday. The Southern Expressionists Exhibit will close on October 1. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. “In the South, we have often only considered art that reflects our culture and way of life in a realistic manor,” Owen said. “We have typically looked upon art as a reflection that we find easy to understand. Expressionist art conveys emotion and learning rather than reality. This show will consist of art and artists that are willing to bring a new approach to how we view our ‘southerness.’”  Published 5:23 pm Wednesday, September 9, 2020 Casey and Owen invite everyone to come to the Southern Expressionists Exhibit and see what energy mixed with talent and a need for self-expression look and feel like Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Casey said Owen is multi-talented and does amazing work.“Scott Owen is multi-talented and does amazing artwork,” Casey said. “He is an expressionist and some of his work is precise cubism. He works in most mediums.  He is a well-known sign painter and will be doing murals. What people say about Scott is ‘if you don’t like Scott Vaughn Owen then you don’t like anyone.’ He’s a man of peace and equality.”center_img Casey said, early in her life as a painter, she felt she was to do realism.“The professor of my college clay class said to me, ‘a camera does realism and showed me work by Warhol,” Casey said. He challenged me to think differently about how I looked at reality. I didn’t get it then. The same professor told me I couldn’t be an artist and have two children…I didn’t tell him I was pregnant with my third. So, I studied English, but art continue to churn in my spirit.“I listen now to how I feel about a subject and most of what I paint is soul birthed. Expressionism is emotion and meaning rather than reality. Art is stepping over fear and society’s expectations and letting the work birth itself.  I work primarily with acrylics on canvas but love experimenting with found objects, nature and other mediums.” Book Nook to reopen You Might Like Skip Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By Jaine Treadwell Print Article Business owners team up to send relief to Louisiana On August 27, Hurricane Laura struck Louisiana as one of the most powerful storms in U.S. history, with early reports… read more Sponsored Content Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingWomen Only: Stretch This Muscle to Stop Bladder Leakage (Watch)Patriot Health ZoneHave an Enlarged Prostate?
