TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A new exhibit by a Thomasville artist at the Tallahassee International Airport gives us a glimpse into the charms of rural life. It's a show worth a visit, even if you aren't catching a flight.

Mixed media drawings using materials like ink, watercolor, pen, pencil, marker, and crayon, Postcards to Nowhere by Rich Curtis at the Artport Gallery is inspired, in part, by vintage postcards.

Curtis illustrates country life by adding natural elements, at times deliberately, staining the paper with rust, wine, flower petals, coffee, and dirt. The stunning exhibit catches the eye of even the most hurried traveler.

"It promotes the art community in Tallahassee and people who are coming to Tallahassee get some insight into the cultural things we have here that are unique and special," said Joan Kanan, Chair of the Art Council at Tallahassee Senior Center. "This is a great opportunity for artists to come see and show their work."

The exhibit is presented by COCA, The Council on Culture and Arts, and runs until June 10.
