The Remembrance Art Exhibition
Remembrance is a joint art exhibition of Murfreesboro-based artists Leroy and Barbara Hodges. This art exhibition embraces and showcases the extensive breadth and depth of the Hodges’ diversified artistic works spanning more than 20 years. This exhibit celebrates diverse life experiences and the preservation of cultural heritage, history, and stories. The exhibit offers a medley of things to appreciate and as such, it offers a sampling of art styles that is wide enough to appeal to a diversified group of people.
The artists exude artistic technical mastery, skills, and creativity, thus generating an impressive body of works. These artists incorporates a variety of artistic styles, methods, materials, and influences, thus creating a dynamic, fluid, and thought-provoking show filled with a gamut of textures, colors, vibrancy and collage elements.
One thing ubiquitous about this husband-wife team is that they have painted together, but also they have divergent art styles. Dr. Hodges says “that her style with mixed media incorporates found 2D and 3D objects that are given new life in her work”. As an “Artistic Storyteller”, her works always aim to create a narrative and tell a story. These materials range from bottle caps and papers to pieces of fabric. Leroy’s art typically falls into two categories, including experimentation with cubism and his “Blue Tones”, which are composed of different shades of blue. The Hodges has the uncanny ability to unify numerous modernist stylistic references on canvas.
The artists would like the exhibit to engage, inspire, and empower the art audience to establish a public dialogue and keep up a vibrant ongoing conversation. The art exhibit starts August 31, 2021, at Murfreesboro City Hall Rotunda. The exhibit runs from August 31, 2021, to October 14, 2021. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
