BRIAN MELTON: VOICES OF APPALACHIA
Dogwood Arts Gallery / 123 W Jackson Ave. November 5, 2021 - December 17, 2021
Join us for the opening of Voices of Appalachia and Selected Works by Brian Melton. Portraits of Appalachian icons like the legendary coach Pat Summitt, the Heartland Series’ Bill Landry, John Henry, Sequoyah, and Davy Crockett hang alongside tropes like the old-timer, volunteer, midwife, coal miner, longhunter, fiddler, farmer, pastor, and teacher.
The exhibition includes 15 wall-mounted cottonwood bark sculptures alongside several large-scale free-standing sculptures, woodblock prints, and a recreation of Melton’s studio.
