John Gascot: Artist MG Stout Paints a Bridge Between Home and Combat Zone
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Award-winning artist MG Stout has spent the last few months collaborating with combat veteran, Jason Conner, to shed some light on the inherent difficulties families and vets experience after the jubilant homecoming. Her upcoming exhibit, After the Parade, illustrates a soldier's transition back into civilian life: a long, hard road that has been traveled for generations. This exhibit opens the door for hope and healing, and features original paintings based on Conner's photographs.
The exhibit, which is free and open to the public at Studio 4 in Old Town, VA, runs from August 1 until September 9. An opening reception, also free and open to the public, is planned for August 10. 30 percent of all exhibition sales will be donated by the artist to the Wounded Warrior Project. This organization is dedicated to raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service members.
