HARRY UNDERWOOD Escape Your Kind: New Paintings OPENING RECEPTION FOR THE ARTIST Saturday, September 8 7 - 9 PM
Harry Underwood is a self taught painter living in Nashville, Tennessee. Born and raised in Florida, his early adulthood included short stints in New Orleans and Austin before he eventually settled in Nashville. His paintings feature nostalgic characters and a soft, muted palette that remind one of old postcards and advertising. They also incorporate pencil-written musings that range from quaint, ideosyncratic homespun musings to sharp and outspoken political and social commentary. The idea is to grab the viewer at a distance then pull them in to examine the details up close.
