I wish I could take credit for this compelling idea, but it was Michele Fletcher who brought the idea to us. Michele is a local photographer and a longtime friend of Cabell Gallery. Her work is remarkable, I will say that I have a piece or two adorning my own walls at home. But when she suggested this exhibit, we just couldn’t say “no.”
The idea was to get two different artists perspective on the same view. In fact, we would have a painter work directly from Michele’s photographs to create her own work. How fascinating to see a photograph and a painting of the same view! Michele enlisted her friend Tammy Hinkle, a well regarded artist out of Richmond, to take up the challenge.
How fascinating it was to see these works side-by-side.
The exhibit was in place throughout March 2019 and was extremely popular. I honestly can’t say that I’ve ever heard more “I heard about this from so-and-so and had to come see it.” Although Michele and Tammy were both guest artists at Cabell Gallery, we continue to get questions on their work. If you have any interest in owning a piece of either of these talented ladies’ art, just give us a ring or shoot us an email at Cabell Gallery and we will be happy to facilitate that for you.
