Megan Caldwell and Everyone Else at Longbranch

Leave a comment

 

For a long time now, the only painting by Megan Caldwell in the collection has been this little painting on a tiny block of wood in the kitchen.  We fixed that.

Sad to miss the opening due to Indiana, though we got a preview of the show before everyone invaded.  What a fantastic collection of work, not just Megan’s but also great stuff from Winslow McCagg, Anna Billman (whose photography is excellent) and Leigh Henry.

So now we have some Megan in the house.  Or we will.  Or something.

This one depicts a local stretch of the river very close to home.

Same spot, different time of day.

Because Eli and Romey insisted, the upper left painting now belongs to me. The water is magical.

This is a study for the painting I purchased. Had to get it too.

Winslow and Anna’s work was in another room.  The pairings were perfect.  An incredibly well-designed show.

Nice to see such great work at Longbranch.  Clarke County’s art scene is top notch.  (The show will be up through May 8, 2022.)

 

 

Great Advice

Dear Winslow,

You are correct. I’m pretty sure we should deliver this now.

Thank you.

My band the Bitter Liberals just played a house concert in a barn decorated with original paintings by Winslow McCagg. In true cross pollination, the show was put on by the proprietors of the Duvall Gallery where Winslow is showing. Living in a county where artists support each other like this is a joy.
