WALK of ART spring event will be held May 5-6 at the Hoover MET

I'm honored to be a participating artist at a local event this spring. It will be my first art exhibit in Birmingham since relocating from Kentucky 18 months ago. It is time!  

The WALK of ART will be held at the Hoover MET on May 5-6, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sponsors are: The Central Alabama Art Guild, the Hoover Arts Alliance and Alphagraphics, Inc

This event is benefitting The Wellhouse, (a ministry that brings awareness to human trafficking occurring in our city) and the Hoover Scholarship Fund.

I've painted several new paintings, created many small gift items that I call "functional art" ... all perfect for "Mother's Day, graduation gifts, birthdays, etc. Most of my paintings are inspired by either flowers from my garden or those of my gardening friends. The fairies and humming birds are from my imagination.

This morning, I was honored to be one of the Central Alabama Art Guild members meeting with Mike of "Absolutely Alabama" to help promote our upcoming Walk of Art event held at the HOOVER MET, next Friday and Saturday from 9-4. Shown is work from Jinger Crouch Glasgow – CCAG president,Lisa Walker, Daphne Kelly and Portia Williams. The CAAG Art Show will be posted on WBRC's webpage next Monday. 

My new work features spring flowers ... mostly irises and lilies, butterflies and birds of all kinds ... humming birds, blue birds, even tropical birds. I'm also introducing my "hidden fairy" artwork. I look forward in seeing you at the first ever "WALK of ART.
