Tour 32 Parke County Bridges at the Gallery

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Forget the boots and mittens. See all 32 bridges in the warmth and comfort of the Art Gallery. Through the eyes of Covered Bridge Art Association artist, Bob Foor, each bridge is portrayed in a technique called marquetry. There are no stains, paints or dyes. He relied upon the natural color, figure, grain and texture of the wood to make the skies, bridges, trees, shadows, highlights, etc become an exquisite landscape.

Bob is a native of East Chicago and a graduate in theatre of Indiana University. In retirement, he and his wife chose Parke County because of its natural beauty and the Covered Bridge Art Association. Discovering wood veneer as a potential medium for art; he began using faces, flowers, barns and buildings as subjects for his paintings in wood. He has other pictures which are for sale on display at the Gallery.

There is no fee for this show which runs through the end of February. The Gallery is located on the north side of the Square in Rockville. For more information, call 765-569-9422 or www.coveredbridgeartgallery.com.
