Rethinking Preconceived Notions
During the month of August, the Artists' Place Gallery at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer will be exhibiting the works of Abraham(Abe) Partridge.
In his own words:
This is the ART of ABE PARTRIDGE, from the cultural ghetto of Mobile, Alabama .
I left Mobile when I was 18 in pursuit of a Theological education. I attended 4 bible colleges in 4 years… partly because I couldn’t follow rules, partly because I knew better. I became a pastor of a small Independent Baptist Church in the Appalachians of Eastern Kentucky at 25 years old. When I was 27 years old I became acquainted with a horrible depression. I left the ministry and turned to ART. I have written songs and made paintings like these for years. Only after joining the military and going to war, did I decide to begin sharing my ART with the world. I never took a songwriting class, nor have I ever had an art class. I always just thought I was weird. Rethink preconceived notions. Question Authority. Create new methods of Survival. See beauty. - ABE
The exhibit will be on display from July 28 through September 1 and may be viewed, by appointment, by contacting Rob Bearden at 251-767-8362.
Please join us on Sunday, August 12 from 3:00 until 5:00 for a meet-the-artist reception and viewing in Abe’s honor.
