hollie chastain & chris bruno
Hollie Chastain is an artist living and working in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Following studies in both fine art and business she spent several years in marketing and design before taking the leap in 2009 to launch a career as an artist and illustrator. Hollie works mainly with paper, mixing vintage and found images with modern colors and compositions to create work full of originality and narrative. As well as various publications you can see her work in galleries and art boutiques both in the US and abroad.
Chris Bruno was raised in the rolling green hills of Southern Virginia by professional artists. His father is a photographer, his mother a painter; thus, he was genetically predisposed to the artist’s life and temperament. He traveled with his parents to the art shows they exhibited in throughout his childhood, developing a strong aesthetic from all the exposure to different art mediums, different artists and being on the road and ‘seeing’. All sorts of experiments and layers of thoughts play into Chris’s paintings. He uses acrylics, graphite and layering with papers, fabrics or sometimes other found objects.
The Arts Company will present a dual exhibition of Chris Bruno and Hollie Chastain's work from November 4 - November 25, with an opening reception on November 4, 2017 from 6-9.
