Notwithstanding this somewhat reasonable reply and WC's self-righteous bloviating, the news media opened the door on this by reporting anything about it in the first place. The lack of any followup is curious to say the least. Applies to both the "apparent suicide" and the body found behind Dollar General. Not to say it hasn't happened many times in the past, but it is still curious…

They note right up front the murdered couple was Native American, why don't they also note the killer was a Mexican national?

There is no difference! They both enjoy taking money from people who work for it and giving it to the leeches. They also have no problem killing the unborn and selling their body parts. They are both selfish and lazy. Neither has any redeeming value in life. In the old days they would have all starved to death do to their failure to plant or harvest food for the winter.

Actually, Hydro, you don't have "every right" to know who the deceased gentleman is (unless you're his next of kin). You merely paid your taxes; that one (insignificant) fact does not give you the "right" to know any darned thing about the man. (Using your logic, the identities and the home addresses of crime victims would be announced every night on the 10 o'clock news, simply to…

Bittersweet Confections to Host Artwork of John Nelson

11 months, 2 weeks ago by Scott Hardy

John Nelson will be the next featured artist at Bittersweet Gallery, located at 111 Jail Alley in Quincy. The exhibition entitled Co-Exist will run from August 15 through September 13, with an opening reception with Chef Michael’s culinary fare and drinks on Friday, August 15 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Nelson, who graduated with an MFA from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, has been working as an artist and living in Quincy for the past 20 years. He came to Quincy with his wife Julie who just retired as Executive Art Director of the Quincy Art Center. “Not many people have noticed John as such an accomplished artist”, states Bittersweet curator Nadine Mitchell, “because he has had to show outside of Quincy to not create a conflict of interest for his wife’s career at the Art Center.” Perhaps now that his wife is retiring, Nelson will start to exhibit locally and continue to “show his feathers”.

Nelson’s work is very postmodern, mixing minimalism with portraiture without constraints to traditional formats. Most of his paintings are acrylic on linen with several layers of thinned out paint and layered images; many times using several panels to create one piece. His paintings explore issues of style, perception, and narrative. Nelson explains, “I am usually interested in comparing ‘this to that’. The impulse is to always have one thing with another - an attempt to have a minimalist composition co exist with subject matter.” What comes together is a compelling and mysterious bridge between human form and geometric landscapes.

Connect to Bittersweet Confections' website at www.ruggedtruffles.com for their hours of operation to view the show until September 13.
