MC Erny Gallery

Renowned artist Virginia Wright-Frierson has an exhibit hanging in WHQR's MC Erny Gallery titled At Home and Abroad: Watercolors, Oils, and Prints. Listen above to hear Virginia's relationship with watercolor and oil-and the biggest problem about being an artist. The prints in the exhibit are lino cuts, old-fashioned cut-out linoleum rolled with ink and set onto paper. Hear about the lino cuts, and Virginia's advice to new artists, below.

About the Artist:

Beginning as an acoustic duo over a decade ago, Mac & Juice now travel the countryside as a quartet (acoustic and electric), playing original music described as “a broad-spectrum, rock & roll mosaic” with a vast stylistic range. Their latest release, Step Into The Light, is a mélange of genres that runs the gamut – from Stevie Wonder to Merle Haggard, with hook-laden songwriting and elements of bluegrass, jazz and Americana throughout.  Every show is a surprise, and this episode of Soup To Nuts Live! will be no different.
