Rick Anderson: 50th Anniversary Gallery #2

Image
  Morning Moon by Rick Anderson Mixed Media on gallery wrap canvas 24” x 30” $1600 "The overall work has a soft and warm feeling although the subtle moon seems to float in a cool sky. The warm trees appear to have a transparent glow which allows the subtle tree branches to quietly show through.  The applied textured lines weave through the landscape creating movement that the eyes follow back and forth, left to right and back, occasionally pausing at the geometric shapes juxtaposed underneath the lines. At the bottom third of the painting, with very wet paint, I painted vertical lines with flowing drips with darker values. I created this painting for the 50th Attic Gallery celebration because of the overall warm, bright feeling that I get when I think about the Attic Gallery, and what the gallery and Lesley Silver has meant to me throughout the years, and what she has done to help everyday artists." - Rick Anderson   ---------------------------------------------------------

  50th Anniversary Artist Gallery #1 Dale Rayburn & Mamie Joe   Autumn Memories - Dale Rayburn Monotype on paper 18" x 18" $750 Autumn Memories by Dale Rayburn "Throughout my career, I have had a propensity toward painting older people. They tend to show life experiences on their faces and they have great stories to tell, as well. As I have grown older myself, I have painted several self-portraits. This piece was inspired by the fact that I am so grateful for being able to do what I love. Making art as your vocation, in my opinion, has to be one of the most rewarding endeavors anyone could possibly wish for."     Show of Grace - Mamie Joe Acrylic on paper 15" x 15" $550  SHOW OF GRACE mixed media on paper by Mamie Joe "My 103 year old mother fell three times several months ago, and by some miracle, she did not break any bones.

  It’s Here: 50 Years! The Attic Gallery. A place. A story. A life. In October, 1971 Lesley Silver cleared out a space in her husband’s gift shop attic in downtown Vicksburg, and hung up a couple dozen original prints she had gotten as the result of a California trip. The Attic Gallery was born; and now, hundreds of artists and thousands of artworks later, it is time to celebrate the journey that has lasted 50 years (so far). In early October we hope to gather for a big party and art show, but until then we are planning a series of celebratory events, both here and online, where we will spotlight some of the many artists we have worked with over the years. We are asking them to create new work, and from time to time we will feature an original piece in a virtual Anniversary Gallery along with a look at the artist and their relationship with the Attic. They will be presented more or less in the order they started working with the gallery. In this way we will tell the story of the Attic
