Name: Eclectic Eye presents “#GildTheDelta” by Norwood Creech
Date: February 15, 2019
Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM CST
Event Description:
“#GildTheDelta,” presented by Norwood Creech, was originally developed in 2016.
Each piece is adapted from paint and pastels that incorporate gold and silver gilding,
or metallic effects, as a part of the creation process. Creech utilizes each medium to
depict elements of the Delta’s agricultural landscape, such as crop fields, Native
American burial sites and farmer pivots. When asked to describe this collection, Creech
stated, “In this series of work, #GildTheDelta #ArkansasDeltaArt, I have incorporated
gold and metallics into my plein air and studio landscape paintings. This heightens the
symbolic glorification of and my love for Arkansas’ Delta.”

Norwood Creech resided in Memphis in the early ‘90s and developed a wonderfully
supportive clientele before relocating to Northeast Arkansas. For the last 18 years,
Creech has enjoyed creating pieces of the flat agricultural landscape found in the
Delta, with work featured in parks and the Welcome Center in West Memphis,
Arkansas. Transitioning into a new phase of life back in Memphis, Norwood Creech is
open to what the future might become and is grateful for the opportunity to introduce
“#GildTheDelta” to the community.
