Road Dreams by Laurie Cameron at Good News Garage

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

girl sucking thumb-smCountry Roads may make for a romantic song about West Virginia, but the “reality” is more varied and pragmatic on the one hand and more strange and surreal on the other. The black and white photographs presented in Road Dreams are a selection from the shots taken by Laurie Cameron in the Eastern highlands between 1964 and 1985. The roads range from major highways to dirt tracks through mountain farms replete with the dogs, cats, cows people and vehicles to be found along the way.

Mr. Cameron will bring his unique perspective to Good News Mountaineer Garage Gallery for a show during ArtWalk on Friday, November 26th from 5 to 8pm.


Clayton Spangler’s Metallic Series at Art Emporium

by Clayton Spangler

Artist Reception Friday, November 26th
at Artwalk 5 to 8 pm

Clayton Spangler’s Photographic Design Metal Series Prints represent a new art medium by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, the archival qualities of this unique process are unparalleled.

Clayton’s new artwork has an additional benefit over gicleé or photographic processes in that they are waterproof and have an ultra-hard scratch resistant coating. You’ve never seen a more brilliant and impressive print! Colors are vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking. Detail and resolution are unsurpassed.

To compliment this unique printing method, a new modern way to hang and display these works of art have been developed using a “floating mount block” that sets the prints ½ inch from the wall for maximum visual impact without the need for a frame. ( A specially designed “floating frame “is available however, for those looking for a slightly more traditional look.)

The artwork created on the proprietary infused aluminum process will last for generations when displayed indoors and out of direct sunlight. Like any fine art print, these should not be exposed to direct sunlight or high outdoor temperatures.

All of Clayton Spangler’s “Charleston Heavy Metal” Collection are printed on White High Gloss Aluminum – a Brilliant high gloss surface that shows every detail for a maximum wow factor.
