Artist Bob Privett will be in the DAC Gallery window painting and working on one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces.

Prsvett’s  jewelry is made of a special clay mixture that he makes and sculpts into beautiful jewelry. Each bead and center pieces are hand-painted. Bob guarantees the jewelry for the life of the artist and re-pairs the jewelry for free when and if it needs repair. He also resizes the jewelry to specifically fit the owner.

Privett makes use of bold colors in his paintings to entice people to walk down a side street they would normally ignore, to visit a place, stay a while, and enjoy the moment of being one with the art. His mediums include acrylic, oil, and graphite.

He is basically self-taught. He-learned some basics in his high school art class. At college he attended several classes. He particularly enjoyed the class taught by Olen Bryant at APSU.

Privett has been recognized internationally, nationally, and locally for his works of art. His paintings have been published in several art magazines. Additionally, he has donated many pieces of art for charitable purposes.

“When I work on a piece of art, my process and vision for each work is deeply personal. Sometimes I struggle even to find the right words to describe my work when it is completed because I have my own personal and intimate connection with the piece just as each viewer of the work will have their own personal connection. I feel that art is truly in the eye of the beholder because of the emotions and feelings that connect a person to a particular work of art.” — Bob Privett

His passion for drawing and painting was best expressed by Pablo Picasso when he said, “The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.”

Bob will also be featured at the Athletic Club during the month of August.
