Born in Fairfax Virginia, Henry Schreiber spent his childhood in the suburbs of Washington DC, the mountains of West Virginia, and the gulf coast of Florida. After receiving his MFA from the University of Central Florida, Schreiber established a studio on a family farm in the Appalachian Mountains. Following his two years of learning the ways of the groundhog, he packed up his studio and moved to Charlotte, NC.

Exhibition Statement: "Hollerbound" is an allegorical journey to a small pocket of Appalachia, seen through the eyes of a naive marmot. This series of paintings explores the marmot’s memories and adventures in the Holler, a small valley situated between two hills.

This show portrays ways of being in and of the landscape. Similar to being spellbound, “Hollerbound” reflects a feeling of being both drawn to and trapped in a particular place and time. These paintings are the reflection of a wandering soul inevitably returning to the Holler...

...but really, they are funny paintings of groundhogs.

The opening reception will be held at Modern Eden Gallery on Saturday, March 8th from 6-10pm. Featured solo artist, Henry Schreiber will be in attendance at the reception. The exhibition will be on display through March 22, 2014 and is free and open to the public.
