"Country Boy" Artist Brad Dorsey, 3-D Art From Nature - TREE DIMENSIONAL Art

Posted on Patch 8/12/2011

"CountryBoy" a name we all have become accustomed to Love.  You can take the Boy out of the Country, but you cannot take the Country out of the Boy---  a phrase we have always heard! Artist Brad Dorsey is just that "CountryBoy".

"CountryBoy", aka Bradford Dorsey, is a native of the beautiful Alpine Village of Helen, Georgia.  "CountryBoy's" creative design ability introduces fresh, exciting expressions, through the use of multi-media, that ranges from water colors, crayons, acrylics, pastels, oils, torn paper, melted candle wax, rocks, broken glass, tin cans and most recently, wood pieces.  Pieces that "CountryBoy" says he borrowed from Nature's Library.  Tree stumps, broken limbs, and other bits of nature that are often overlooked, but are perfectly shaped, are repurposed into a piece of art.

"CountryBoy" is a visionary, using Nature's own to compose those majestic pieces into mind boggling creative works of art which he calls TREE - Not Three - TREE DIMENSIONAL ART. 
Every single piece of artwork has been created from re-cycled forms of some kind and every piece sold, someone else gets blessed.  Churches, schools, colleges, non-profit organizations, are a small list of the groups that benefit from the sale of his art.

You can view "CountryBoy's" art beginning Friday, Aug 12 through Saturday, August 27, at The Little Shop Of Arts And Antiques gallery.

"CountryBoy" is offering a piece for silent auction to benefit the 'Patti-Jo Shapiro Scholarship Fund' created by the Lilburn Womans Club.

Visit this exciting exhibit and see how a "CountryBoy" creates!
Gallery Hours: Thurs and Sat 11 am to 5 pm, Friday 11 am to 8 pm.
