RockStar Gallery – Guest Artist Ron Collins

Guest Artist: Ron Collins at RockStar Gallery talks about his art piece called “Selma”

The Art of Ron Collins blends wood carving and painting into a deeply moving visual experience. Ron feels a spiritual responsibility to speak against hatred and hopes to continue his campaign to eliminate the word “hate” from our vocabulary. He has discovered a very interesting teaching tool to share his beliefs. The tool is wood from the bark of a cotton wood tree from Georgia O’Keeffe’s Ghost Ranch outside of Abiquiu, New Mexico. The wood is carved into the shape of a heart with a drop of “blood” (red paint) signifying a bleeding heart. Thus it is deemed the “Heart of Compassion.”
