Fact?...with some Fiction! Exhibition at Greeneville Gallery10.21.2005
GREENEVILLE, TN — Greeneville's regional art gallery strikes an historic note with Fact?...with some Fiction! — a show combining fine art with themes from the past. The exhibition will be on display through Nov. 23, 2005 at James-Ben: Studio and Gallery. Featured are works by local and regional artists in several different media inspired by historic themes and evocative images from northeast Tennessee.
Newest gallery artist John LeGrand is premiering his work at James-Ben: Studio and Gallery during Fact?... with some Fiction!. LeGrand studied illustration and painting in New York City and began his career as a staff artist at the American Museum of Natural History. Now a resident of Pensacola, FL, he joined the gallery through a contact made recently by gallery patrons, who encouraged him to relocate to this area, escape the hurricanes and, in the artist's own words "get to some place to paint...and smell the mountain laurels." LeGrand's watercolors use strong color and composition to evoke historic themes, such as a Revolutionary War era Native American wearing the coat of a British soldier.
