Charles Martin – Now and Then: a 60 year retrospect in art

The exhibition will feature 80+ works in oil, acrylic, collage, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and drawing media. Martin’s earliest work dates back to 1956, a black and white photograph of an old car and spanning to a scratch board work of a wood duck made in 2016. This retrospect reveals the great skill and breadth of one man’s journey through a creative life.
