|Henderson County artist Celene Terry’s watercolor titled “Weathered” caught my eye and takes center stage for our lead photo this week. It reminds me of the snow we had here in the region last week as well as the the beauty of winter bare trees and weathered old buildings.
Photographer Hank O’Neal’s eye often goes to worn and abandoned things like that when looking for beauty in the Upper East Side of Texas as well.
I’ve always been drawn to those things too. I want to know their stories. What were they like in their “heyday” and what might they have endured, yet keep on standing?
Nostalgia and melancholy balance well with shiny and new which you’ll also find in this issue as we learn about celebrity Chef Cassy Jones’ new restaurant and lots of colorful art filling galleries around the region. — P.A. Geddie
