Members of the Shoals Artists Guild will be showing their work in Art Expressions at the Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts in Florence.
“The interesting thing to me is to see all the different media,” said Mary Nicely, program coordinator at Kennedy-Douglass. “You’ve got oil, acrylic, pastels, drawings and you’ve got just about every medium you could think of.
“You’ve got lots of different subject matter and lots of different styles.”
Art Expressions is a judged competition with nine pieces chosen as award winners.
This year, Richard Gooch won first place with his work in pencil, titled “The Chief.” Second- and third-place awards went to Carol Howdyshell for her oil paints “Wading Bird” and “Castle in Scotland” respectively.
The show was judged by artist Lisa Norris Milby, who lives in Athens. Milby is the artist recruitment chairwoman for Art on the Square, a fine arts festival in Athens.
Merit award winners were Mary Linville, Jeanne Summerhill and C.L. Dawn Yang. Honorable mention awards went to Bonnie Davis, Andrea Gray and Jeanne Summerhill.
Shoals Artists Guild meets monthly and sponsors a variety of events and programs.
The exhibit runs today through Tuesday, Oct. 30. The museum is at 217 E. Tuscaloosa St., Florence. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Admission is free.
