Three Artists-three views at Mint Hill Town Hall

The new Mint Hill Town Hall Exhibit, titled “Three Artists-Three Views,” runs through December. It features the work of Luis Ardila, John Barja, and Sharon Furner – all members of Mint Hill Arts. The artists will be honored at a public reception on Sunday, Nov. 2, 3-6 pm, at the rear of the hall.

A recurring theme in his art is symbolism, which he believes is the key to enlightenment.   He has been influenced by 20th century Expressionism, as well as illuminators and sculptors of the Middle Ages.

John Barja, Sr., a Mint Hill businessman for over 30 years, began painting in high school and continued his study of art in college. He is known for his whimsical, often humorous pieces.  Barja is displaying for the first time ever his collection of paintings that commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I.  They are based on the poetry of Wilfred Owen, a renowned British poet who lost his life just days before the end of “The Great War.”  His moving portrayals of the horrors of war demonstrate the powerful message art can convey.  He hopes his works will provide inspiration to those interested in the arts […]
