Spectrum II: Various Imaginings by Drew Edward Hunter
sept 2 – oct 31
Disney’s masterpiece Fantasia ignited Drew Edward Hunter’s imagination at a very young age. With a degree in Fine Arts from Centenary College, Hunter also studied art in Rome. He has worked as an actor, muralist, scenic designer, museum and exhibit designer and, in his present capacity as vice president of creative design for Jacksonville’s Sally Corporation, has designed and art-directed award-winning dark rides for amusement parks worldwide. All the while finding time to fill canvases with his imaginative paintings; many showcased in solo and group exhibits.
“While one painting may soothe,” Hunter explains, “the next may unsettle. One piece may evoke a smile, and the next may cause deep thought. Thus the Spectrum of the title is apt.”
Why Spectrum II? Hunter held a successful exhibition titled Spectrum in his hometown, Shreveport, LA, last year.
Reception: Friday, Sept. 4, 5–8 p.m. Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum, 101 W. 1st St., Springfield, 356-2992.
