debra gindhart dragoo is a local artist who has shared her love of art, poetry and repurposing with eci and beyond. her artist mantra is re-use, re-claim, re-new and this mantra moves through her art and her poetry. she often paints over, uses journals found at yard sales or resale venues for jotting poetry notes, and saves mural paint leftovers for future use. a collection of three series is an exhibit of her most recent avenue of expression…mixed media and aerosols. yes she is still playing with paint in cans and with nozzles, paying homage to bob ross, and poking playful art fun at paint by numbers.
her series pretty faces, aerosol and old lace and happy waves, a humorous homage to bob ross, comprise the exhibit. a work in progress, paint wrong numbers, will also be represented in this single artist show that runs through september 30th in the main floor and upper studio galleries at the artist within, 313 s. walnut street, downtown muncie.
