Before attending UNCG where he received his MFA, Juie Rattley III grew up in Columbus County watching his father restore classic cars. The long hours his dad spent working on his prized 1962 Chevy Impala are images Ratley has channeled into his latest series of paintings:  “Some of my fondest memories of the 1962 Chevy Impala was of my father working on it day and night, the completion of the project, and the weekend cruising.”  Rattley’s vivid palette and method of applying pure pigments directly to the ground celebrates the parallels between his painting process and his father’s passion for cars.  “My love for these classic vehicles continued ...
