“A Watchful Eye” by Bonnie Davis

Art Expressions, an exhibition of works by members of the Shoals Artists Guild, will be on display at Kennedy-Douglass Center of the Arts in Florence from October 1 through November 8. Join the artists for an opening reception Sunday, October 1 at 1:00 p.m. The exhibit will also be open the weekend of the Alabama Renaissance Faire, October 28 and 29, during the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.

This group of nearly thirty artists was founded in 1952 and includes members who work in a wide variety of media and with many different styles and techniques. The exhibit will include paintings in oil, watercolor, pastel, acrylic, and mixed media. This year’s judge will chose nine pieces as award winners – 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place, three honorable mentions, and three Merit Awards.

The guild meets the third Friday of each month at the arts center for demonstrations of new art techniques and discussions of current trends in the art world. Members are welcome to stay after meetings to sketch or paint. The Guild maintains a permanent gallery of original paintings and prints on the second floor of the arts center and displays work at several other area locations. New members are always welcome.
