November Featured Artist, Deon Calloway, Summit Art Exhibit

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Deon Calloway is the Summit guest artist for November 2016. He has installed an exhibit on the 2nd floor gallery featuring over 30 original sketches covering a range of subjects.  As an artist “spotlight”  in the current issue of “Lynchburg Living” magazine,  Deon is making a name for himself around central Virginia. A little over four years ago, Deon’s teacher at Altavista High School , Jess Ward, noticed his natural ability for drawing. Deon is autistic, which makes speaking a challenge,  but Deon is making rapid progress as his art motivates him in the direction of connecting and communicating with people about his work.

On Monday, November 7 at 4 pm, The Summit will host a “meet the artist” reception for Deon in the Summit's Community Room. Summit citizens, family and friends are welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be served.

Deon's artwork will be on display at The Summit Art Gallery through November and is available for purchase. Deon can be reached on his Facebook Page at Art By Deon or by email at ArtByDeon@gmail.com
