Needle and Thread: New Work by Butch Anthony

Location: 211 East 1st Street, Sanford, FL
Time: Tue-Sat 10am-6pm and Sun 12-5pm
Forever; a work in progress by Butch Anthnoy.

Butch has taken up embroidery floss and a needle to lend new dimension to his Southern-Gothic genre of artwork. Thumbing his nose at reality and tongue planted firmly in cheek, he presents antique and classic images with a quirky twist. Bones and skulls are hand drawn with childlike simplicity over photographs that show their age in tones of sepia. This spectacular show will take your breath away.

Opening Reception: Friday, August 28 from 6 - 9pm, coinciding with Sanford Art Walk.
