Other Faces: Immigrants in Chattanooga
By Michael Edward Miller
Chattanooga, TN – Chattanooga oil painter Courtenay James has a new series of portraits on display at the River Gallery. The series is called Other Faces: Immigrants in Chattanooga. Create Here gave James a grant to help complete the series, which took two years. James says he decided to paint portraits of Chattanooga immigrants because he often sees them in the news, sees them where he lives on the Southside, and his wife is an immigrant. He wanted to portray them, not as a group, but as individuals.
