“Road Trippin'” at the Georgetown Art Center

Georgetown square 1

I wasn’t allowed any captures of the newest exhibit at the Georgetown Art Center, but I’m going to tell you about it, anyway.

The new exhibit is called “Road Trippin‘” and is enjoyable to view and family friendly.  My young artists and I enjoyed all of the travel themed art, including altered suitcases that resemble RV’s, large paintings of local landscapes, mixed-media collage, and several unique and edgy edited photographs of highways and byways.

This colorfully collaged lady resting upon the bench was found casually installed on the east side of the downtown square. No information about her was to be seen, but my kids thought she was….interesting.

I also happened to pick up a new art book they were selling in the Center, featuring the imaginative assemblage work of artist, Scott Rolfe.

The book features Rolfe’s original assemblages illustrating  twelve of Aesop’s Fables.  This book is not only delightful to look through, but my 8 year old son was immediately inspired to begin collecting rusty hinges, doorknobs, metal parts, and all manner of discarded objects, to begin his own assemblage in the garage!  And to my surprise, I opened up to the back cover to find that my very own Uncle Duane, of O Studio Photography, was the art photographer for the issue.  Small world!

Be sure and check out the new exhibit if you have the chance and remember their annual Art Hop competition deadline is fast approaching, August 31st.

Have a great week!

  1. Hi Scarlett – I enjoyed looking at Scott’s work, and then to see your uncle’s studio work … interesting to find out about it all from the book. Fascinating .. and how fun that your son started collecting bits and bobs – glad the garage can be used for the rusty parts!

    I love the lady on the bench .. doesn’t she look just right … glad you had a good time looking round the art centre and being down town – fun day out.

    Cheers Hilary

  2. Scarlett, thanks for checking out the exhibit and for your kind words about my book. I am so excited to hear that your son has become inspired to do assemblage! And talk about small world…your uncle Duane is an amazing person and photographer!
