Rawls Museum Arts and Bronco Federal Credit Union
A CELEBRATION OF PAINT & MOTION
Artist Gallery Talk - Sunday November 6, 2022
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Free and open to the public
Artist Bio - Eric grew up on a farm in Southampton County, graduated from Southampton High School (Courtland,VA) and received his degree in Fine Arts from Virginia Tech. After graduating, he worked in the commercial art and sign painting industry. Eric is currently employed at CBN (Virginia Beach) in the Scenic Design Dept. Eric’s art has been shown and sold in galleries in Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Richmond. Eric later started building his own tools and machines to manipulate the paint using physics. Eric puts all of the parameters in place, then sets it in motion, calling it controlled chaos!
Artist Statement - “Every artist uses a tool to apply paint and usually that’s a paintbrush.” “To me, each new painting is an adventure!” Where art and motion collide.
