Art Exhibit January 24, through February 28, 2009

A couple of paintings I have in the exhibit of fish, these are both in acrylic.

This is our entertainer at work, Son Thomas' son. He was great!
A few more of my paintings in the exhibit.
We had the opening on January 24, 2009 and it was spectacular! There was delicious food and only in the Delta, can one be serenaded by the son of a Blues Legend like Son Thomas. The music, food and crowd could not have been better. It was a really fun event. The photo above is Son Thomas' son as he sang the blues and kept us entertained! The other shots are of some of my paintings in the show. I am having trouble uploading on this satellite connection so this is all I could wait on today!

I have some of my art in an exhibit in Leland, Mississippi. It is in a gallery called Hobknob, a most unexpected little place in the heart of the Delta. I invite anyone in the area to check it out and experience the joy that the Delta has to offer. Hobknob is on one side an art gallery and on the other side it offers handmade pottery, blown glass, wood turned bowls and carvings. A most interesting place in a most unexpected location, which makes it that much more enjoyable. When you go there step down the street and visit a great coffee house called, Molly's. I am posting a few shots from the opening and the artist statement that I wrote for the exhibit. The artist that I share the venue with is my friend Kathy Davis from Arkansas. To view more of her art and learn about her. We had a really great time and hope you can go visit Leland and check out Hobknob for yourself!

Feathers and Fins, Friends and Friendship the Art of Cathy Hegman and Kathy Davis

Artist Statement

Friendship is sometimes long and winding like the brown dirt roads in rural Mississippi, leading the friends on journeys that are sometimes unpredictable and other times comforting, familiar, and safe. The road is the beginning of new experiences for each traveler. Art, much like the road links people together both visually and mentally. One can attain a glimpse inside the artist’s soul by studying the artist’s work, and perhaps find a piece of them that links them to the artist and the art. Art resonates and touches the emotions without regard to age, gender, race, or religion through the application of pigment to canvas or paper. Art can be the voice that cries out without limits, or sometimes whispers the thoughts of the creator. Art speaks silently, yet conjures up feelings and gives satisfaction that is undeniable, and yet intrinsic. It validates our need to learn about ourselves, and gives us freedom to search for our own identities.
Art brought Kathy and me together as friends. The bond that has incurred is one that is both tight and elastic as it centers on the journey we each travel with our art and where we are on our journey. The road is long and often dusty, but always renewing the spirit with inspiration.
This exhibition is a culmination of the art of two friends, who have only recently met but have a connection that seems to defy the brevity of the time.
I invite you to enjoy the journey of our art.
