The WCAA will host a light lunch reception on August 4th from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM to give the community an opportunity to meet the artist and learn about her beautiful oil paintings. The exhibit is entitled Ponds, Streams, Lakes and Oceans – Wonderful World of Water and will be on display through August 30th. Please RSVP, if you plan to attend the opening.

 

After moving to Alabama in December, 2020, she has become a member of Lewis Smith Lake Artisans Alliance and the Walker County Arts Alliance.

Paula’s career as an artist started nine years ago when a friend invited her to an art class. It didn’t take long to realize she had found her passion. After four years of classes with two different instructors, she struck out on her own. Her education continued through workshops with renowned artists in the Nashville area. Joining the Chestnut Group, Plein Air Painters for the Land and Bugg Hollow Plein Air Painters broadened her experiences. Paula has painted on location in Tennessee, Alabama, Maine, Italy, St Croix and Loreto BCS and has participated in over 20 Tennessee juried art shows. Paula is also a Member Oil Painters of America.

The Walker County Arts Alliance Gallery is delighted to announce a solo exhibition of the paintings of beloved local folk artist Maurice Cook during the month of July. The WCAA will host a light lunch reception on July 7th from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The exhibit will be on display through July 29th.


Maurice Cook, a favorite at the Art in the Park art festival, was born in Carbon Hill, Alabama. He has painted most of his life and has no formal art training. While most of the people in his paintings are black, his work is associated more with the rural South, rather than what is popularly known as “Black Art”. He sometimes paints jazz musicians and scenes with an urban look. Maurice currently lives in Birmingham, Alabama with his wife and daughter, where he paints full-time.


DIRECTIONS: The Walker County Arts Alliance is located on the Bevill State Community College campus at 1411 Indiana Avenue in the building formerly known as the Jesse Student Center across from the Clem Gymnasium. The Arts Alliance is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
