While busy with commissions before Christmas, I have also been busy with art shows. Here’s a quick recap of the Mountain Brook Art Association Holiday Show.

Birmingham area locals, come out to Parkside Bar in downtown Birmingham next Friday, October 19 for this great one night art show, featuring new works by Mary Liz Ingram, Dariana Dervis, Cecily Hill Lowe, Erin Hardin and Chi Roach. Our different subjects, styles and media will be unified by cool colors…the colors of calm: blues, greens, grays, purples. It will be a fun night, so bring your friends! Eclectic Cool: The Colors of Calm October 19 from 4:30-9:00pm Parkside Cafe & Bar, upstairs 4036 5th Avenue South Birmingham, AL 35222
The Old Water Tower, 15X21 Soft Pastel on card…Here’s a peek into some of the new work for our show.
About a week ago, on that unusually cold Southern Spring weekend, I participated in the first Village Art Festival at Brookwood Mall in Birmingham, Alabama. Wonderfully organized by the Birmingham Art Association and the mall, for me the show was a success. My booth was full of art and placed outside, across from restaurants and a flowing fountain.
As “supervisor” of the Kids Zone, I have to brag on the organizers whose creativity and forethought set up the best and smoothest kid’s art area I have ever seen. The families who participated had a blast, and were very excited to take home their own art supplies!
My large pastel “Shepherd’s Hut” finally found a home, and I made lots of great connections to other artists and art lovers.
I also acquired a sample of pastel cloth to experiment with, courtesy of a new friend whose art will be highlighted in a post to come!
A second show is being planned for next year…I recommend participation to artists and the public!
