Always Far Away © 2017 John W Wood, mixed media on paper, 48 x 86 inches
"I spent a very productive month in Northern Wyoming, not far from the Montana border, at the Jentel Artist Residency Program enjoying the winter landscape and using the time and experience to explore new images and ideas in my art. The frozen landscape was very compelling and presented such a temptation to paint beautiful, traditional landscapes. At Oakopolis I am working to see how my art will change in response to my time away at Jentel as well as to the new political realities of 2017.
I have set up my “studio” in the Oakopolis Creativity Center Gallery and I welcome you to stop by, see how my work is developing, ask questions, and generally interact with the art making process. I hope you will join me in seeing what will happen next.
My “studio” at Oakopolis will be open:
Art Murmur, the first Friday of March & April, 3/3/17 & 4/7/17, 6-9:00 PM
Most Saturday afternoons in March and April, 1:00-5:00 PM
I will also be working in the studio at other times during the week and you are welcome by appointment."
