It is spring break around these parts so Kevin and I headed to the coast. We checked out the Walter Anderson Museum in Ocean Springs.The first exhibit was the Tradition/Innovation which focuses on Contemporary Craft from the South. There were some new (to me) artists....
Shawne Major, Opelousas, LA, Portal to Portal, 2005
Darryl Montana, Mardi Gras Indian Chief Suit, New Orleans, LA, 1997
Old friends.... Mark Peiser, Penland, NC
and Elizabeth Brim!!! Oh Betty- it is a terrible picture but a lovely piece.
The other exhibits focused on Walter Anderson. Here are some drawings that I love (and did a master copy).
Walter Anderson's watercolors are incredibly vibrant and psychedelic. They remind me of Charles Burchfield.
Here is the little room off his studio that he painted a mural. Get ready Kevi Kev- I might get out my paint brush.
