|Fireman by Tom Hutchinson|
American Visions Art Gallery commemorates the tenth anniversary of
heroism and loss, with an opportunity on September 11 to meet two
firefighters who are artists - painter Tom Hutchinson and photographer
Paul Ferrin. Both are coming to the gallery's Granite Bay location,
at the Quarry Ponds Plaza, 5540 Douglas Blvd's.
Tom Hutchinson, whose work has been on display at the gallery, and who has been featured in the Sacramento BEE, is an oil painter whose work catches the dangers of firefighting as well as commemorating the tragedy and the bravery of 9/11. Several of his paintings feature Dusty the rescue dog trained by Sacramento Metro Fire Department who spent days working at ground zero, became everyone's mascot, and who rang the bell at the New York Stock Exchange when it reopened. Tom will be available to sign and dedicate his art as well as to talk about his work as a firefighter and paramedic with Metro Fire. "In my art I try to capture the beauty and grace of a moment in the action of doing something with inspiration and passion," he told the BEE.
The newest painting by Tom Hutchinson reflects the symbol of our freedom, the Statue of Liberty with the twin towers reflected from a pilots helmet.
The Painting is stunning and this photograph cannot do it justice.
as it was quickly taken so that we could share it with you now.
The painting is now on display in our Granite Bay gallery
Firefighter and Photographer Paul Ferrin
Photographer Paul Ferrin, whose images capture emergency and firefighting scenes. Ferrin lives and works in the Sacramento area after studying art and photography. Paul has photographed extensively throughout the US, Europe, Mexico, East Africa and underwater while SCUBA diving. His award winning photographs are held in private collections and have been exhibited
throughout a number of galleries and museums.
Join us in paying tribute to September 11 and to their work.
