He has created paintings using kitchen spatulas and installations/sculptures with chewing gum, wine glasses and silverware.

Kara Sheehan

New Image Gallery Presents: Martyr of Dixie Exhibition featuring Artist Pat Jarrett

A religious zealot who lead an inferior army to victory against the United States, Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson did not live to lose the Civil War. He was martyred by friendly fire while on patrol during the battle of Chancellorsville. Because he died at the height of his career he is remembered more fondly than almost any figure in the Civil War in the South. From the myth that he enjoyed sucking on lemons in battle to the headstone for his amputated left arm Jackson’s legacy lives on today. The Stonewall Brigade Band still plays at the bandstand of the same name in Staunton’s Gypsy Hill Park and hundreds still march to honor the man during Lee-Jackson Day festivities in Lexington every year.

Pat Jarrett is a photographer and digital media specialist with the Virginia Folklife Program, so he typically shoots with one eye toward the past. He uses digital photography and printing to create the photographs. His project about Stonewall Jackson is still in progress.  For more information on the artist, visit his website.

The exhibition runs from September 8, 2014 until October 10, 2014 in the New Image Gallery.  The opening reception is in New Image on September 8, 2014 from 5-7pm.
