"Little Washington's" Lone Leaf ....not so Lonely, or little!
Meredith and Neil Loughlin invite you to explore the best of the Inner Banks.
The Loughlin's are not of your average Inner Banks variety, neither are the Artist's that they represent. Among the list you find wood turners, knife makers, printers, fiber artist, stained glass and jewelry. Right in the midst of all the savory collection you find the designs of Meredith and the modest photography of Neil. The couple are far from self promotion as they lift local artist on their shoulders promoting the artistic economy within the gallery entitled "Lone Leaf".
"Love" - scanogram by Meredith Loughlin
Meredith appears to have more facets then a precious diamond and her varied skills have produced a shimmer rarely seen. - admittedly Meredith confides: "My artwork is about identifying that which is unseen.
When the boundaries between material reality and the spiritual realm merge, a sanctuary is created. Within, there is no longer a desire for anything except to be connected to infinity and eternity and the unlimited reaches of the universe.
The medium of photo-based collage helps me visualize and illuminate each of my individual concepts. Whether the subject is an interpretive portrait; an artificially created vignette of nature; or a landscape where the inner and outer spirit meet; my objective is to create a rare glimpse into an unexpected dimension"
Neil's work is very rare, yet familiar to us all. It is that particular time that anchored itself firmly in the fissures of our brain... Neil, somehow found it and mounted as though it is a trophy. Neil shares: "I create each of my photographs as though a painter with a brush. Transforming the world as we know it into one full of mystery and splendor. A place where the imagination becomes lost in the enchanting bokeh floating across the image's horizon. Though each photograph is unique and original in form and process, it feels as if it were an obscure memory created in the mind of the viewer."
In 2008, Tyrrell County sculptor Tom Kilian created the IBXarts.org Web site to support and highlight the work of artists living in the Inner Banks—the region east of North Carolina's Interstate 95 and west of the Outer Banks. IBXarts.org includes links to nearly 100 artists in 22 Eastern North Carolina counties as well as links to artist operated galleries, local arts council galleries and Inner Banks art schools. . click to view
