McDunn Gallery in Greenville, NC, Features Works by Mark Flowers

McDunn Craft and Art Gallery in Greenville, NC, is presenting the exhibit, Story Boards, featuring mixed media paintings by Mark Flowers, on view through Sept. 1, 2011. A reception will be held on Aug. 6, from 6-9pm.

Flowers grew up in Greenville, SC, and attended the University of South Carolina where he received his BFA in Studio Arts. After that he went on to Western Michigan University where he earned his MFA in painting. He and his artist/wife, Kristy Higby settled on the coast of South Carolina in Bluffton, SC, where they lived for 11 years. There he established his art career, taught art, and served his community well by being a volunteer firefighter and Town Councilman.

Since 1991, Flowers and his wife have made art and taught at the prestigious Mercersburg Academy, a private boarding school in south-central Pennsylvania. During the past 20 years, he has maintained strong ties in the Southeast with his art. Flowers’s work can be found in 26 public and over 300 private collections across the region.

Flowers says, “As my life evolves and my work develops, I visually report my experiences as an artist, teacher, husband, and father. My paintings are journals where I think, reflect, and then react. Lately, I am intrigued by the relationship of images and how they can narrate a story. When Images as single thoughts are connected, become more complicated and narrate a story. Years ago, work was simple in form, and now the panels are shaped, the content layered, and more complex.”

McDunn Craft and Art Gallery showcases original works by over thirty artists of South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and the surrounding southeast region. You will find ceramics, paintings, printmaking, basketweaving, woodturning, sculpture, textiles, blacksmithing, studio furniture, and more.
