Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts will feature a new body of work called “Just Maybe…” by Huntsville artist, Eric Bagwell January 8 – February 9. The new work is a series of contemplative abstracts centered in spiritual meditations of hope, grace, and longing. As the new year begins, this series of vibrant yet quiet visual relationships challenge the viewer while putting them at ease in consciously designed spaces.
“Using abstract form, color, and texture I try to capture the holy moments found in everyday life. I most often work in oil – occasionally in encaustic, watercolor, or even sculpt in clay or stone. If we are indeed made in the image of the one who created everything, then creating is an elemental part of what we are meant to do. I believe creating art connects us to our elemental human identity,” Bagwell says.
Bagwell is a former Methodist minister and graphic designer. He has created several series that have been presented in art festivals across the state, including Arts Alive. To learn more about Eric Bagwell’s artwork visit ericbagwellart.com
