SPRINGFIELD -- The "Artist in
Residence" program at the Vachel Lindsay Home State Historic Site
continues with an exhibit of paintings by Springfield artist Hugh
Moore, whose work will be on display in the home Nov. 17-30.
Visitors can meet the artist at a public reception Saturday from 2
to 4 p.m.
Moore will be presenting art in a variety of media and premiere a
new song, "Rhymes to Be Traded for Bread." The song is in honor of
Vachel Lindsay's birthday.
The reception is free and open to the public.
Moore is an artist, composer, poet and the host of WQNA's
Saturday morning variety show, "Flyover Zone."
His paintings are colorful, dreamlike images. "I call my
stylistic approach 'sur-ruralism,' a combination of empirical
reality and imagination, often placed in a Midwestern rural
backdrop," Moore says.
