Thetford Art Exhibition Open at Dixie Ballroom Gallery Until November 25th

Huntingdon, Tenn.- Stop by the Dixie Ballroom Gallery for the Daryl Thetford Art Exhibition open now until Saturday, November 25th.

Thetford grew up on a hundred-acre farm just down the road in Bradford, Tennessee. His father was a forklift operator who worked in a warehouse, and his mother was a beautician. While they encouraged their son to pursue so-called “practical” avenues of work, they also recognized his early artistic abilities, and enrolled him in oil painting lessons–which he loved–at age nine.

Thetford is an artist working in photography-based digital media and collage. His work has been described as graphic, modern, pop, and contemporary, although what to actually call the process has been a larger source of debate. Thetford’s work has been called photo collage, digital art, and digital mixed media.

FirstBank and the Arts Company in Nashville are sponsoring the event.

To see the art show just stop by the  Dixie Ballroom Gallery open Monday through Friday from 10am to 4pm and during performances.  For information about this and other Ballroom Gallery events, please contact Laura DeVille at ldeville@dixiepac.net.
