Pepaw’s Farm: The Works of Andrew Pulskamp Exhibit @ Iredell Museums' Court Street Gallery,
Apr 25 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Please join us at Iredell Museums as we will be featuring work from Spartanburg, SC artist Andrew Pulskamp. Andrew’s art is themed around his love of nature and his family’s farm in Kentucky. He draws inspiration from scenes found on his morning walks with his dog, Lucy. “I try to find the beauty in regular old things that we would normally take for granted,” Pulksamp states. “From these photos I began painting what surrounds me and what influenced who I’ve become.”
Pulskamp received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Arts in Philadelphia, PA. He worked in many different mediums, including sketch, blown glass, and illustration. He was introduced to watercolor paintings when he was a senior in college. His professors encouraged him to continue to work with the medium.
In addition to his paintings, Pulskamp has created hand-painted growth charts for children called “Nana’s Door Jams.” He says that he found the inspiration to create them when his nephew was born and he wanted to create something special for him. Iredell Museums will have some of these growth charts for sale during the exhibition. After rediscovering his love for painting, Pulskamp quit his job and moved back home to hone his craft and build up his portfolio. His painting “Pepaw’s 6’ Ladder” has won numerous awards and is a featured piece of this year’s Art Crawl.
Pulskamp’s art can be found in private collections all over the Southeastern United States. “I love layering lots of paint to build texture within my piece and explore some of my favorite techniques, which consist of dry brush, pointillism, salt, and even cutting and sanding the paper itself,” Pulskamp says. “I like to take simple subject matter and push the boundaries of what people assume you can achieve in a watercolor painting.”
“Pepaw’s Farm” will be on display at Iredell Museums from April 17 until June 5 at the Court Street Gallery. The gallery is open Tuesday-Friday from 10-5 and Saturdays 10-1. Please call or visit https://www.iredellmuseums.org/court-street-gallery.html for more information.
