If you could put sounds to artist Josh Brown’s artwork, you’d hear grunting, squawks and neighs. That being said, it’s no big mystery that Brown mostly paints animals. This includes everything from ordinary creatures found on farms to the more exotic found in zoos. But what stands out about Brown’s paintings is a natural approach to their features and actions. Rather than picture-perfect poses, he paints his animals humorously (zebras baring teeth) and other times placid (dark, fuzzy, long-necked ostriches surrounded by color). A recent graduate of Myers Park High School, Brown is attending Savannah College of Art and Design with a major in industrial design. He’s currently on a donkey and cow kick. “I am always looking to find the next greatest animal expression to portray with my paint,” says Brown. Opening reception on Aug. 2, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
