About Local Color – A Sense of Place
Barrow states, “‘Local Color’ is a romantic look at the sublime, picturesque and beautiful landscapes across Tennessee, inspired by early American painters from the 19th century to the abstract expressionists of the mid-20th century. These refuges are my sanctuary, where I can hear the voice of a higher intelligence in a gentle breeze or the echo of thunder rolling through a valley, and feel the passing of that power’s hand in the clouds drifting by or the sunlight wandering across an open field. The value of these places, and so many others in Tennessee and across this incredible nation, are simply beyond priceless and we as a people must continue to preserve them for ourselves and future generations.”
