SOMETHING TO CROW ABOUT

PULASKI — While the sound of a crowing rooster at sunrise might inspire some to wake from their slumbers, it inspired one local artist to awaken his creative muscles.
Ryan McCardle, an artist and employee at the Fine Arts Center for the New River Valley, recently took to his paintbrushes to create a painting measuring more than six feet in length that features a colorful crowing rooster.
However, this rooster isn’t just your average barnyard creature.
It is also the mascot and logo (originally designed by B.J. Angle from The Southwest Times) for this year’s New River Valley Fair, cleverly titled “Something to Crow About.”
McCardle’s painting, which he noted took about 40 hours to complete free-handed, has now found a home at the New River Valley Fairgrounds in Dublin and will be on display throughout the entire week of the NRV Fair, which is set for July 21-26.
McCardle, who is a graduate of Pulaski County High School, is a rising sophomore at Savannah College of Art and Design, where he is majoring in illustration and minoring in graphic design.
He said he began interning at the FACNRV about two and a half years ago and continues to work there during his extended breaks from school.
He has also worked with Burgess Realty Co. Inc. in Dublin in creating a painting for their business and would like to do similar work with local businesses or individuals in the future.
