Florida artist Doug Bloodworth specializes in photorealistic pop art oil paintings and his work evokes nostalgia with its iconic images of comic books, games and snack foods. His paintings will be displayed through September at the Thomas Lee Gallery, 20 S. First St., Ashland.
Bloodworth holds a degree in commercial arts and spent his early career painting caricatures and billboards. He also mentored with Marlboro artist Marv Gunderson, where he developed different fine art techniques.
Gallery hours are 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
