Nelson County, Virginia
Via The Blackburn Gallery
Upon the opening of The Blackburn Gallery, exhibits will highlight the works of twelve regional artists. The gallery will additionally debut art work from students at the Nelson County High School as the gallery’s first guest artist feature. Guest artists will be rotated through the gallery every three months. Kevin Blackburn, the owner of the gallery, has been an artist and photographer for more than 20 years. This is an exciting new venture for Kevin to be able to create a space for emerging and accomplished artists, as well as a space for Kevin to highlight his own personal body of work. The collections that are being shown from Kevin’s personal body of work are from his Impressions limited edition collection. Additionally, Kevin will be exhibiting the William Lee collection, an open edition of prints that are dedicated to his father.
The twelve regional artists whose work is on exhibit in the The Blackburn Gallery are; Mike Zavada, Gina Carroll, Lynn Hilton Conyers, Cara Mischelle Dimassimo, Michael Brookings, Liz McCormack, Troy Argenbright, Tom evans, Jack Kavana, Mike Boyle, Dennis Hippen, Feather Stein, George & Chris Jetter, and Patti Siehien.
A statement from Kevin Blackburn –
“I have known many great artists over the years. Opening The Blackburn Gallery is giving me the opportunity to be inspired daily by many of the great artists.”
