August Persons: Portraits by Blake Hurt


Blake Hurt has long been fascinated by the deconstruction of the portrait in order to re-order it with artifacts and symbols that describe the accomplishments and interests of his subjects. He doesn't choose to portray highly renowned individuals, but rather people who have made some significant impact in our local community, or on a more autobiographical level in his own life.

Officially opening with a Sunday Artist Reception on August 13th, at 3:00 PM. However the work will be up for First Friday with somewhat unpredictable summer hours. Call 434 806-9667

Hurt is showing two bodies of work in the two separate galleries. In the PCA Gallery his large scale Steampunk Ink Collages are featured. While in Chroma, Hurt is presenting his new series of outrageously coronated watercolor portraits "August Persons".
