Art Show: Out of the South at artstream

I'm loving these images transferred onto vintage architectural ceiling tiles by Southern artist, Meryl Truett. Truett's work is part of a group show (launching this evening) at artstream gallery in Rochester, NH called Out of the South. The show brings together a disparate yet connected group of artists who hail from the environs known as the American South. Meryl Truett is the magnet that brought this assemblage together - she also has curated the show. While each artist possesses a distinct style and aesthetic, a common thread runs through the intent and content of the work. Truett's work celebrates a vanishing southern landscape in a unique way. By transferring the images to vintage architectural ceiling tiles, she melds the image and the form to create an evocative object. Other artists in the exhibit are Polly Cook, John Dodge Meyer, Dorothy Netherland, Tobia Makover and Marilee Hall.

Out of the South  runs July 15th - September 5th at artstream gallery  located at 56 Main Street in downtown Rochester,  NH.  Check their site for more details and to purchase online.
