LAYERS: Contemporary Painters Working with Rich SurfacesDestry S. Sparks, Al Montgomery, Emily Rutledge and Anna Marie Troupe collaborate to bring this mixed media exhibit to Art Works. Destry Sparks is the curator as well as one of the exhibiting artists. Art Works met Destry through our monthly call-for-entries for All Media Exhibits. He is from Greenville, North Carolina, and is a contemporary mixed media painter using found objects to create a visceral effect upon the surface of his works. He brings a very tangible element to painting. Sparks exhibits in North Carolina Virginia and southern California has won numerous awards. In February 2011, Destry brought a solo show exhibit of his work to Art Works. At that time he was organizing like-minded artists exhibits and so we offered to curate a show of 4 artists in 2012 at Art Works. Thus LAYERS was planned. Al Montgomery Al has shown around the US but also in Vienna, Emily Rutledge exhibits in Chicago and Anna Marie Troupe at UNC Charlotte, NC.
