      Here is the arts exhibit for Feb 07-Mar 02

      NWG New Window Gallery presents:

      Acrylic Paintings by Cathy Vaughan

      About the artists:


      Cathy Vaughan,originally from Hudson, is coming back to New Window Gallery/Play It Again Records in Valdese NC for her third art showing from February 7 to March 2 2020. This year she has expanded her subject matter as well as her techniques for an even broader collection than ever before. She experiments with a wide range of tools and methods for different effects. Her collection includes water colors, acrylics, spray paints and sometimes pastels. If what she did yesterday is not your cup of tea, just wait and see what she does next. Subject matter can range from nature to fantasy to the abstract according to her mood at the moment, sometimes fun and sometimes somber but always changing. Even Cathy doesn't always know what her next painting will be until she is finished. She would like to extend thanks to her former art teacher Margaret Martine for improving her techniques and to David Mench for encouraging her to let others see her work.

      There is one strange phenomenon about Cathy's paintings. Many tend to have faces hidden in them that were not part of her plan and were not put there on purpose. Friends have made a game of seeing how many faces they can find in her paintings. One example is the painting of an old church entitled; Forget Me Not. People found faces in the windows that were not intentionally painted. Ghost Story has multiple faces hidden in it. That one is on display and for sale in a cbd store in Elkin NC. You can look them up on Facebook and see how many faces you can find.


      Rodger Revlon is widely known as a cutting edge rock musician but also enjoys creating exciting art. In the early 1980's Rodger was co-founder along with Gyn Cameron of the Dayton Ohio industrial and performance art band; "Dementia Precox". His principal role in the band was providing a factory assembly line type sound by hitting various found metal objects with hammers. He also sang and played sax some. He continues to this day releasing music under his given name David Mench. His newest cd ep; "Juice Juice" is available at Play It Again Records in Valdese NC. The title song was recorded in W. Negril Jamaica at Chop Chop Productions. The other songs recorded in Long View NC at Terry Eckard's Diamond Feather studios. Aside from recording Terry also provided guitar and other instruments.

      Rodger does not feel confined to any artistic style. His collage paintings are created on scrap paper then attached to a canvas. He enjoys accidental methods. Channeling energy from forces in the universe is essential to the creation! The artwork has no up or down viewing position and affects each viewer's interpretation in a different way.

      Rodger also enjoys using the computer scanner as a camera and manipulating his images with the computer to obtain a infinite kaleidoscope effect. The images are then printed on paper and coffee mugs.
