DON MUNSON
JULY 19 - SEPTEMBER 13

We are pleased to present Make Your Mark, a two-person exhibition

exploring the traces and the threads 

of our eldest and youngest generation.

Drawing a line between a 50 year-generational gap,

Don Munson and Erin Reid each exhibit their freshest marks to-date.

DON MUNSON, MAPLE, 2022

I planned to break from painting. Not long after I accepted to put down the brush, 

I began a new cycle

during the peak of a lunar journey

and at the end of one very personal.

I sat for days watching the strawberry moon rise from behind the hazy blues of the Appalachian Mountains.

I couldn't believe how fast she rose,

and ran for a sketchbook.

DON MUNSON, FEATHER & STICK, 2022

     Last year creating fifty paintings culminating 

with Hanover Oak.  Setting the stage for 2022.

     Moving forward, I re-emerge.  New abstract visions.   
Made of multiple juxtaposed elements.  A cohesive integration of

graphic and organic forms with illusion of realistic elements.

                Color is always paramount.  Videre, yes I see.
