Starting on July 10, 2016, the Birmingham Public Library will feature the work of ten Alabama artists who are also members of the Watercolor Society of Alabama (WSA). The exhibit will feature a variety of media including oil, acrylic, collage, watercolor, ceramics, mixed media, hand-painted lithography, and calligraphy. Ten Alabama Artists debuts in the Fourth Floor Gallery of the Central Library and runs through August 26, 2016.

The public is invited to meet the artists at an opening reception on Sunday, July 10, from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m., in the Central Library's Boardroom adjacent to the gallery. The reception is free of charge. 

The exhibit is curated by Jaceena Shepard of Town Creek, Alabama, a well-known practicing artist, exhibition curator, and art teacher. "These ten artists are enthusiastically creative. Their work is inspiring because it tells a story, makes us smile, asks ‘how did she do that,’and causes us to realize that creativity comes from discovering the most potent muse of all is our own inner child," says Shepard.

In addition to Shepard, the following artists are featured in this exhibit:
Rick Atkins, Athens
Peggy Milburn Brown, Montgomery
Winnie Cooper, Birmingham
Heike Covell, Huntsville
Lyn Gill, Brewton
Lectora Johnson, Birmingham
Charlotte McDavid, Birmingham
