Video interview: Charles Lovelace & Walter Coatney at Barnwell: multi-media pieces, paintings and historic Palace Park nightclub

Artists Charles Lovelace and Walter Coatney are proud of the fact that they can see art materials where you and I see the detritus of everyday life.

Their paintings and multi-media pieces document their community and answer questions about what's beautiful and what's do-able.

A brief interview with Lovelace and Coatney is on YouTube.

See their work at Barnwell Art Center. It's adjacent to the Riverview Fountain on the riverfront. They are part of a show called Kindred Spirits. Painter Jane Heggen is the third of the Kindred Spirits on exhibit.

10am - 4:00pm, Tues-Fri

Very nice. I need to check out this show. I've interviewed a handful of people about their memories of Palace Park/Club 66. I also have copies of ads from some shows, mainly 40s/50s jump blues -- Roy Brown, Roy Milton, Eddie Vinson, Johnny Liggins, etc.
