In the Apple Gallery - Ken Bridle - "Eyes of an Artist - Vision of a Scientist!"
An opening reception will be held in honor of Ken Bridle on Friday, April 26, 2013 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Apple Gallery at the Stokes County Arts Council, 500 N. Main Street, Danbury, North Carolina. The exhibit will be on display from April 24th through May 28, 2013. A program of music will be provided by Erin Kye. The public is invited to attend this free event.
Bridle is a conservationist by profession as well as an artist by passion. His vision as an artist grows from his experience and feeds his current interests. Admiring the artists that documented the flora, fauna and landscapes of the New World during the exploration and colonial period has been a lifelong interest. In the days before cameras, artistic interpretation of exotic species and locations helped fuel public support for exploration, trade and travel. It was those illustrations that fired the imagination and created the myth of inexhaustible natural resources in the new world.
His interest in arts has focused around the Stokes County Arts Council where he has been an active volunteer, board member and past president, supporter and participant in many programs including being Master of Ceremonies of the Stokes Stomp Festival for many years. He lives in Walnut Cove, North Carolina with his wife, Luann.
The Stokes County Arts Council offices and gallery are open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information about this exhibit or any of the Arts Council’s events, please contact us at (336) 593-8159 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
