New gallery: City Art in Greenville, NC

Beginning this week, you can see three of my paintings at City Art at 511 Red Banks Road in Greenville, North Carolina.  One of them depicts the view from one of the last remaining small ferries in the state.  Parker’s Ferry crosses the Chowan River at the mouth of the Meherrin.  It carries one car at a time, and you have to honk your horn for service. Ferries like this still operate because it is safe to operate them.  They sit well above any tidal zone, and the water is reliably flat.  For the painter, this strong horizontal plane gives both the trees and their reflections something to latch onto when the mist at first light wants to unhinge solid objects and send them hurtling off into space.
