Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But for an artist it is so much more. Artists copy or borrow from other artists to learn and grow more than to flatter. When local artist Carol Burnett encountered the work of Lynchburg artist Queena Stovall over twenty years ago, she knew that she not only encountered a kindred spirit, but had found a lifelong artistic mentor as well. "I loved her imagination, her compositions and the natural way that she captured life as it was," explain Burnett of her decades long admiration of Stovall's painting.
While these two local treasures never met, they share a similar artistic vision and journey. Like Stovall, Burnett is a self-taught artist who is drawn to depict fond memories, people, place and events in her past. And also like Stovall, Burnett found a primitive painterly style to express herself and tell her stories.

Virginia Dickens, is a photographer, artist, and graphic designer. She creates her art by combining her photographs, paintings and sketches in Photoshop. The mixed media piece is then built up layer-by-layer, adding pieces of her photographs as she goes.
Printing her creations on canvas, metal and watercolor paper in her studio, she assembles the frames and hand stretches her work. Some canvas prints receive another round of painting with acrylics and gel mediums.
In 2009, it was a Near Death Experience which would open up a strong spiritual relationship with nature, human consciousness and her understanding of death. While weed whacking in the yard, she disturbed a yellow jacket nest and was overcome by bee stings. What the artist experienced that day soon became the underpinning of her latest creations.
Please come by 2nd Friday, June 8th from 5 to 8 PM at The Electric Company Art Gallery, 207 E. Depot St., Bedford and enjoy her work as Featured Artist for the month of Ju
