/' _J 144 - CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, September I - Monday, September 4, 2006 Detail Art Gallery to showcase folk art Rehoboth Beach: Detail Art Gallery will hold a special art show and artist reception, featur- ing the works of folk artist, Demarquis Lamar Johnson, with an opening reception set for 4 to 8 p.m., Sept. 2. Folk art is unique to this area and Detail Gallery is excited to bring this first class show to the Mid-Atlantic region. "Raw talent like this is hard to come by and we are very excited to have him and his artwork in Rehoboth" said Michael Muller, co-owner of Detail Gallery. Demarquis Lamar Johnson is an up-coming artist on the American Folk art scene. Johnson's artwork is now on exhibit in galleries in Washington, D.C. and he is frequently men- tioned in gallery talks-iia New- York City, Philadelphia and D.C. The goal for his work is to inspire people across the country to go after their dreams and grab hold to those special moments in their lives. Traditional folk art often draws upon the artist's pure and creative impulses. Johnson's work draws upon his own cultural experiences and is presented in a very raw and emotion driven interpretation. His work draws us into his own worldview as folkart at its best is meant to do. • The show will continue through the end of September. Detail Art Gallery is located at the intersec- tion of Rehoboth Avenue and Church Street, across from the Crystal Restaurant in Rehoboth. The gallery is open six days a week.
