Probably the loudest commentary from passersby was that heard around the booth of Artist Michael Brown. People would pass by, stop, back up and take a second, third and fourth look and then go to all the works on exhibit by Brown. Brown, a photographer, has used an old technique in a new way to make a photo reflect two seasons from different angles. His website has an example of this work, at right, showing winter and spring.
Brown takes a photo using a tripod from the exact position a second time, in a different season.
Another artist worth mentioning is Katherine Allen Coleman who has a studio in Georgia. She takes the dresses of children, or ladies' gloves from yesteryears and using an acrylic method, layers them onto canvases. Sometimes she uses old patterns or buttons, but her works combine a sense of fashion and dimension as well as paint. Women of all ages seemed drawn to her booth.
