I have spent a lot of time on this blog talking of the virtues that Madison Indiana and the surrounding area have been for my photography work and for the great places to see when you visit, but now I would like to talk about a few of my friends who are incredible artist in their own right.
I will try to share few with you every now and then and show you a sample of their work and a link to their sites. There are far too many to share in one post so tonight I will start with one that is a favorite and a good friend as well.
Eric Phagan is a Madison resident who has studied from Paris to North Carolina and is represented by well known galleries and has actually opened his own gallery in Madison named Gallery 115 you can check out the pics and other info from the link I provided.
Here also is his website with his artist statement and biography
I am not a true student of Art but I do know what I like and Eric’s work is definitely a favorite of mine. If you are in the area you should really take the time to visit his gallery on Main Street in Downtown Madison Indiana. It’s a wonderful place to view his beautiful work and they have a great Cafe as well that serve sandwiches and desserts, Eric is always around as well and is very accessible with a great personality.
So here are a few samples of his work starting with his paintings and ending with his sculptures.
