Opening Reception: December 5 from 6 pm-9 pm
Logan Wagoner is currently living in Baltimore M.D. where he works as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. Originally from the small town of Oriental on the inner coast of the N.C. sound, he received a BFA from East Carolina University in Illustration in 2012. After completing his degree from ECU he decided to enroll in the Savannah College of Art & Design for an MFA in illustration which he will be completing this December. His illustrations are imaginative, colorful, and always carry with them a good sense of humor not to mention as much personality as Logan can fit. His work is line based with a strong emphasis on characters and interaction with a heavy narrative element.
Cost: Free to the public
Twenty-six artists and craftspeople from Virginia to Arkansas will be featured in the biennial exhibition juried by Stefanie Gerber Darr, Gallery Manager of Arrowmont School of the Arts in Tennessee. Darr selected with an eye for both tradition and boundaries-pushing, and noted that theme became how function became the directive to push artists toward inventiveness.
