New Exhibit in Rotunda Gallery at the Historic Jackson County Courthouse beginning this Friday

Spica

A new exhibit will be on view at the Rotunda Gallery at the Historic Jackson County Courthouse beginning this Friday, February 15, 2013 running through March 6, 2013. Sylva artist, Greg McPherson will be exhibiting a series of paintings called Furrow. Each piece is named for a star in the constellation of Virgo. Virgo traditionally represents fertility and is the sign of my muse. The landscapes represented are Sylvan, impacted by towering mountains and a sliver of sky.

In the end, this work is about many intersecting forms of love. List of titles for Furrow:

Spica

Auva

Zavijava

Porrima

Heze

Vindenmiatrix

Symra

Rijl al Awwa
