Durinda Cheek and Cam Busch showcase views from abroad
A couple of Chattanooga natives, who share a love of art and a passion for travel, have opened an exhibit in town to display their work to the public.
The artists drew their inspiration while traveling aboard through the provinces of Italy and France and other European countries and are giving those of us stuck in the states beautiful insight into European landscapes.
The exhibit, which is titled “Passions and Places,” is an ongoing exhibit that is currently being displayed at the North River Civic Center in Hixson. The artists, painter Durinda Cheek and photographer Cam Busch, have captured iconic scenes on both print and canvas of popular European destinations; such as, Tuscany, Venice, and Paris, along with other unique locations.
Cheek has captured the vibrancy and liveliness of these cities in her paintings as well as invoking a sense of adventure in her viewers. While Busch’s photography shares these similar qualities, they also display a sort of surrealism and vividness.
A viewer can not help but feel as if it were possible to walk trough these frames and immerse themselves in the same settings.
This exhibit will continue to be on display until early October; and will then be followed by a reception hosted by the two artists on October 2nd from 2 to 4 p.m.
