Celebrate the 4th with More Than Fireworks!

I will be out of town this weekend celebrating the 4th in Florida and seeing my new house for the first time but am bummed that I will miss Gallery Hop and all the folks that will be showing their art this weekend.  I’m happy to say that I have featured a couple of these artists, Jes Moore and Christopher Brinkman, on my blog!  Trust me, you will love both of their works so spend part of the weekend checking out the art scene in this great town!

Harry Underwood:Artist’s Reception

Friday July 1st

3- 6 p.m.

lindsay g

Harry Underwood is a painter known for portraying a culture of leisure and conformity that exaggerates life in the American south. Produced with house paint and pencil on wood panels the paintings emphasize evocative colors and bold lines. Each composition is augmented with passages of text that read as monologues or farcical sermons on ethics and behavior.

He was born during 1969 in Miami Florida, and raised in the rural “Redlands” farming area near Homestead. His father was a Carpenter and his mother worked at a Supermarket. He has one sister. With his family he attended the Church of God pentecostal church until 1982. As a teenager he cleaned swimming pools at many of the Motels in the area and bussed tables at the Capri Italian Restaurant in Florida City. Uprooted by Hurricane Andrew in 1992 he lived in New Orleans and Austin, eventually settling in Nashville where he worked in the construction industry until 2005.

Self taught in art, he began painting pictures fifteen years ago while working as a flooring installer. His artwork has since been shown by galleries in United States, France and England.
