Bold in color, John Feight’s 1975 painting catches a bit of Americana.

Bold in color, John Feight’s 1975 painting catches a bit of Americana.

The painting “Waiting for the Bus” by Big Canoe artist John Feight has taken on a life of its own. John painted the study decades ago and it found a place in the Telfair Museums in Savannah as part of the permanent collection. Telfair Museums was the first public art museum in the southern United States.

The painting was recently chosen to be part of a national touring exhibition titled “Complex Uncertainties: Artists in Postwar America.” The exhibit is organized by Telfair and International Arts and Artists (IA&A) located in Washington, D.C.

“Waiting for the Bus” was painted in 1975 prior to John’s first show in Paris. It is a bold painting and depicts life in America so many years ago.

Congratulations to our hometown guy!
