Release of the Inner Artist Exhibit at Central Library Through March 29
Don’t miss . . .
The Release of the Inner Artist
Paintings by Joyce E. Brooks are on display on the first floor of the Birmingham Public Library’s Central location from now until March 29.
Ms. Brooks’ website says it best:
Once Joyce E. Brooks managed to minimize the overload, achieve balance and gain some much deserved peace, she discovered a hidden gift deep inside of her. Joyce had never given any thought to becoming an artist. In 2010, after attending an event that included painting on canvass for entertainment, she stumbled upon a new passion. She began painting with acrylics and hasn’t stopped.
Joyce E. Brooks is also the author of the book titled Self-Inflicted Overload.
This month Joyce is celebrating being cancer-free for five years. Since being declared cancer-free in 2009, Joyce has become an artist, author, stress awareness expert, and a “mompreneur.” Joyce says, “Being diagnosed with breast cancer has been a life challenging experience. What could have been devastating has turned out to be a blessing!” Watch an interview with Brooks conducted by Alabama's 13's Ashley Roberts.
Come to the show and view the beautiful canvasses that reflect the artist within.
Come back on Tuesday, February 18, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. for a reception and meet the artist, herself. Self-Inflicted Overload will be available for purchase and signing. The paintings are also available for purchase.
Time is ticking . . . don’t miss out . . .
Come to the show.
