Song of the [new] South

If you're near Atlanta, check out new work by Richard Russell
@ Gallery Stokes November 28 - Dec. 20th.

"This was made using a maple cutting board, part of a minstrel show poster from the 1890's, and a Mexican miniature portrait painted in the mid 1800's. The edges are covered with handwritten lines from a play that sounds like the dialogue in the original Brer Rabbit stories, but not nearly as polite. And of course there's the ubiquitous bluebird of happiness. It hangs from a cheap brass plate-hanger clip."
