From Staff Reports
Eugene Horne has been making art for more than 40 years. He grew up in Augusta, Ga. where he first was exposed to art making in high school. He later earned a BFA in studio arts from the University of Georgia and then an MFA in painting from the University of South Carolina. His work has been featured in both private and public collections throughout the United States. He has shown in New York, Martha’s Vineyard, Savannah, North Carolina, and now is represented in Charleston by Fabulon Gallery, located in Wet Ashley.
“My work is about memory, color, and light and comes from multiple sources, which reflects an authentic approach to painting that represents multiple points of view and multiple sources of inspiration from actual events to imagination and automatic response,” says Horne. “I want to redefine how we perceive painting creating another point of view. I like to think of the paintings as a physical and subjective lyrical narrative about my thoughts and feelings in relation to chosen motifs and the natural world. I’ve always lived in the borderland.”
Fabulon presents Deep In The Forest, an exhibit featuring recent works by Horne, on display in the gallery at Avondale Therapy, located at 815 Savannah Hwy., suite #101. The exhibit officially opened on Sept. 20 and will run through Dec. 20. The artist reception will be held from 6-8 p.m. this Friday, Oct 6. The exhibit is part of the as part of the Charleston Gallery Association Art Walk.
