Fred Stonehouse was raised in an atmosphere of stories and these memories of extended family members weaving tales during his childhood continue to inform his paintings and drawings today. Like the mythic legends told from his grandparent's couch-the spiritual, the presence of good & evil and other paranormal phenomena-rule his work.
A "deacon seat" is a bench made of split logs extending along the front of the bunks in a lumberjack's bunkhouse from which a storyteller would entertain the loggers.
The exhibit will be on display February 26 through April 5.
Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
