COVER: George Hunt / Memphis / September 2015

KINDHEARTED REVEAL: Kindhearted Woman an acrylic and collage on canvas work by George Hunt is featured on the cover of the September 2015 issue of Memphis magazine. The publication writes: “George Hunt is one of the most noted black artists in the [American] South, focusing on blues music images, civil rights, and traditional African Women. His painting America Cares/Little Rock Nine was featured on a U.S. postage stamp in 2005, after the original painting had hung in the Clinton White House for almost five years. He is recognized locally having created  25 original paintings used as posters for the Beale Street Music Festival. Hunt was named the official artist for The Year of the Blues in 2003, resulting in a national exhibit tour, and he was the first artist commissioned to paint an original image for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”
