Scarritt Bennett Center
Thu, Jul 11 4:30 pm
"Local Color: A Sense of Place is a romantic look at the picturesque landscapes across Tennessee inspired by American painters of the 19th and mid-20th centuries. These refuges are owned by “we the people” and are my sanctuary. Places I experience my true connection with nature and my complete dependence on its existence. Where I can hear the voice of a higher power in the echoes of thunder rolling through a valley, and feel the passing of their hand in the sunlight wandering across a field. The value of these places are beyond priceless and we must continue to preserve them for future generations." Richard Barrow is a self-taught photographic artist based in Nashville Tenn.
