Woodie Long

Woodrow Wilson Long was born in 1942 and grew up in a large family in Plant City, Florida. His lively paintings recall some of the simple joys of childhood – riding on bikes, flying kites, walking in grandma's garden and picking flowers. Always artistically inclined, as a house painter, he would arrive at his jobs early to paint huge memory scenes on buildings that he knew would be removed or painted over. He began his memory paintings in the 1980's after he picked up his wife Dot’s art brushes and started experimenting. His inventive use of pattern and color creates a feeling of movement which literally infuses each painting with life. He has produced over 31 national magazine or book covers and is in numerous museums and public collections including the House of Blues, the Hunter Museum of Art, Chattanooga, the Strombecker Corp., Chicago, and many private collections including those of Tommy Lee Jones, Dan Akroyd and Helen Hunt. Among his growing list of honors, Woodie was featured in the article, “Folk Art Jubilee” in the Smithsonian, October, 2003 edition, Smithsonian Institution, New York, NY.

It was with great sorrow that we relay the news of Woodie's passing on Monday, October 12, 2009 at the age of 67. Copy and paste the link below to your browser for more information.
