Introducing This Month's Jones House Artists:
IN MAZIE JONES GALLERY
Eric Plaag is a darkroom photographer, writer, and historian who resides in Boone, NC. He holds a doctorate in history from the University of South Carolina and an MFA in fiction writing from George Mason University. He also majored in Philosophy and Religion at the College of William and Mary. His photography has been exhibited throughout the south (the Carolinas, Virginia, and Louisiana) since 2007, and his images documenting the disappearance of Louisiana’s coastline were part of a Turchin Center exhibition in 2008. Originally from Virginia, he endured nearly nine years of soul misery in various New England towns before returning to the South in 2002. He is delighted daily to be back in a land where his soul can sing. Odd circumstances and a serendipitous encounter with Doc Watson in 2011 brought Eric and his wife Teresa permanently to Boone that year, where they are presently building a forever home for themselves and their regal Maine Coon, Miss Cleo.
Eric can be contacted at email@example.com or (828) 773-6525.

Chris Winsor would like to give thanks to the Appalachian State University’s Extended Studies Program that sparked his love of photography. He was blessed to be able to study Digital Photography, Black and White Photography, and have the opportunity to work in their darkroom. Chris attended the Music Program at Naropa University in Boulder, CO where he took a Photography for Social Change class which continues to inspire him. He met Boubacar Diebate while at Naropa who provided the opportunity to study abroad in Senegal. That trip provided some of the images for this show entitled “Reflections.” Chris has lived in Boone for the better portion of 43 years. Generous people are drawn to Boone including Teresa Cerda-Armas who provided the frames/assembly assistance, and Jeremy Fowler who helped with the installation.
IN UPSTAIRS GALLERY TWO
Bob Reneau first came to Boone in 1985 as a summer visitor while his son was ASU. Having purchased a mountain home for his son and other ASU atheletes to share, he and his late wife Dottie fell in love with the area and decided to move here permanently in 1997. Bob was fascinated with art and began to dabble in acrylics. Having been given some lessons and encouragement in oils, he switched mediums about three years ago. Bob is a highly decorated combat pilot with twenty five years of service in the United States Air Force. Bob is a member at Boone United Methodist Church and has volunteered at the Watauga Medical center for the last eleven years. Although fairly new to painting, he has already sold several paintings and is participating in this exhibit at the encouragement of several friends and his significant other.
