After just coming off some great success at the 2016 Jekyll Island Festival Exhibit with a 1st place and a 3rd place in the People category, I am getting ready for a weekend trip to Watkinsville, Georgia, for another exhibit. Beginning Friday, April 1, 2016, from 6 to 9 PM, the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation will kickoff this year’s exhibit, “Southworks 2016”, a national juried exhibition through May 6 at their art center in downtown Watkinsville.
I am fortunate to have a piece in the show entitled, “Jekyll Island Footbridge” a black and white photo collage of a familiar scene on Jekyll Island near the fishing pier and marsh at the north end of the island. The black and white pictures provided more contrast and make the pilings of the bridge standout against the background. I painted around the edges to focus on the bridge and I am very happy with the image.
We hope to see some old friends in the area and hope to meet some new friends as we go up to north Georgia for the celebration.
