The Hold • 425 SW 4th St., Suite E-2 • 4-8pm

Illustration Meets Fine Art

Watercolor florals drawn in pen; rainbow colored acrylics depicting scenes that tell a story: Lovely to view... but is it ART? The Fine Art world considers such works “illustrations” because of the pen and ink defining lines, or due to the narrative quality. Much of Holly Campbell’s work “illustrates” her dreams or visions, AND uses beautiful, skilled technique fitting with “fine art”... along with vibrant colors that can pigeonhole work as “illustrative”. Sharon Rackham King makes bold marks in pen, followed by the gentle flow of watercolor. The two juxtaposing media marry well for contrast, but are considered not quite as, well, FINE, as Fine Art. Join us at The Hold and make the determination for yourself: Illustration, Fine Art, or just something you enjoy viewing?

The Scenic Route

The camera and photography have been my primary means of creative expression in the past 35 years. I photographed extensively all over the world in conjunction with travels required by my careers. I retired in 2000, giving me the time to explore other mediums such as drawing and painting. Today I use oil, watercolor, gouache and ink. My art involves primarily man-made subjects; howeve,r can also include animals, people and landscapes. I have received various awards and display my work in numerous local venues.
