(L) Jan Chenoweth: 'Graves on a hill', Acrylic on canvas, 24" by 24" (R) Roger Halligan: 'Fortune Flowers I', 11" x 4.5" x 4.5"
When I was in Chattanooga last weekend, I visited a number of artists' studios on the south side, an area that has been transformed in recent years by the arrival of painters, sculptors, glass artists, furniture makers, and other creative people. The two artists who impressed me the most were painter Janet Chenoweth and sculptor Roger Halligan, who have a building near Main Street that combines a large workshop and studio area at the back with a beautiful gallery area at the front. They were kind enough to agree to a joint interview, and I began by asking them to talk about their work.
