A Focus on Bullard Artists – Portraits and Representative Works

Opening Reception

The opening reception for A Focus on Bullard Artists – Portraits and Representative Works was held on Friday, October 14, at M6 Winery. The combination of art, live music, wine from M6 Winery, and a full house made for a fun evening.

The exhibit will be open at M6 Winery through Saturday, October 29. Check m6winery.com for hours.

The exhibit consists of nine photographic portraits by Mike Provencher and Don Bristow, and a representative artwork by each of the nine Bullard artists.

The gallery below includes the portraits by Don Bristow. The artists are Dana Adams (oil on canvas), Greta Faulkinberry (collage), Jeff Kuchinsky (watercolor), Myranda George (usable art), and Billy Joe Tarrant (wooden bowl).

Each of these artists has been touched in some way along the path from preparation to opening reception. Dana Adams was a guest and co-host of Art Connection East Texas, a radio program that airs on KTBB Saturday mornings at 8AM. Greta Faulkinberry received prayer for healing from Sandy Bristow. The happiest moment for me was seeing Greta enter the winery – proof that God answers prayer! Jeff Kuchinsky received some well-deserved praise for his award-winning watercolor. Myranda George was the art director for the show, as well as an exhibitor. Her vision guided the challenging installation. Myranda also designed the postcard. Billy Joe Tarrant is now represented by Valerosa Gallery and has a half-dozen bowls on display there.
