About the Artist:
Matt Gentry is a Blacksburg native and member of the Virginia Master Naturalists New River Valley Chapter, as well as the NRV Bird Club, Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club and Blacksburg Regional Art Association.
In 2015, he completed a three decade long section hike of the entire Appalachian Trail, during which he carried a 6×9 inch sketch book with removable pages earning the the trail name “Sharpie.”
He has been a photojournalist in Virginia for more than 40 years, 20 years of that time with The Roanoke Times. Matt has a passion for the visual arts and plein air painting, mostly with pencil and watercolor.
“The thing I like most about making art outdoors is the feeling of time slowing down and experiencing a deeper connection with the landscape and its inhabitants. Often, birds and mammals will appear while quietly observing and creating. My artistic goal is not to render exactly what I see, but to be inspired by what I see.”
