A new exhibit is taking place inside the Historical Recreational Building at the Wynne Home Arts Center. It will display the artwork of local artists such as: Georgia Allen, Larra Bea Elliott, Dennis Hickman, Semone Robinson and Tommy Rodgers. The event was organized by John Smither, who selected the artists mentioned and the individual pieces altogether.

“I got the opportunity to select each artist and then to curate the show, [meaning] really… to hang the show, place the pieces in some kind of form,” Smither said.

All artists reside in Huntsville (excluding Georgia Allen, who lives in Centerville,Texas) and one should expect depictions between religious works of self-discovery, illustrative imagination and 3D pieces made from various material. All of this, without regard of certified talent.

“Genuinely, folk art is thought of [culturally], and is maybe by and for artists who didn’t have the scholastic training.” Smither continues. “If you go back… folk art can consist of pottery, furniture, objects, boxes… fences, quilts, crafts…. There is a legacy of folk art within every part of the world.”

One of the artists being displayed, Larra Bea Elliot, will mostly be featuring pieces that comes within a series dear to her own.

“They’re all inspired by certain thing in my life, which is my partner,” Elliot says, “so I have a theme among them. I don’t know anything about art, it’s not my world, but I am certainly self-taught and it’s probably the only thing I can identify with.”
