Zan Thompson Meet the Artist Reception

During the months of September and October, the Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center’s Lucas Mansion Gallery will feature an exhibit by Catawba County artist, Zan Thompsan.

A Meet the Artist Reception will be held for Thompson in the Lucas Mansion Gallery on October 13th from 12:00noon until 2:00pm. The exhibit and reception are free to visit and enjoy.

The Lucas Mansion Gallery is located at 316 Hiddenite Church Road in Alexander County and is open to the public Monday – Friday from 10am – 4:30pm and on Saturday from 10am – 3pm.

In an artist’s statement, Thompson explains, “I paint many subjects that engage me, but regardless of the subject, what captivates me and encourages investigation is light and shadow. In my art I exploit this light and dark by exaggerating the contrast. By doing so the subject is more dramatic and color appears more vivid. I have achieved my goal if the color and contrast embrace the viewer leaving them entertained.”
