The Blank Canvas Art of Vaughn Raughn Appearing in Forestville

“The Blank Canvas Art of Vaughn Raughn,” a new art exhibit by famed Forestville artist Vaughn Raughn will appear at the Art Gallery of Forestville, from Friday, when it opens with an opening reception from 5:30 to 8:30., until July 29. Mr. Raughn died in 2010. https://alanboardman.wordpress.com/category/vaughn-raughn/

The exhibit will be a collection of paintings that Raughn never started. Organizers say it is expected to draw crowds of people.

In addition, the gallery upstairs will announce the winners of the “How Art Helped Me Despite All the Problems I Have in my Life as a Result of the Stress I Impose Upon Myself Contest.”

Tragedy struck Forestville’s art community today when local artist Vaughn Raughn accidentally wedged his hand in a can of paint and drowned.  Police at the scene remarked how tastefully he had died, creating wonderful arcing streaks of Prussian blue across the blank canvas of his taupe floor.  Funny but true.
