Art on Exhibit in Birmingham

Be sure to read my Western Tribune column, just below this one.

The Birmingham Art Association was founded in 1908. Among the early artists involved were Hanna Elliot, shown here painting Lucille Douglass. Women were instrumental in promoting art in the early 1900's, as they still are.

This month the Birmingham Public Library is hosting a show of BAA members. The exhibit is on the 4th floor of the Central Library in downtown Birmingham, during regular library hours, through the end of the month.

Most of the artwork is for sale. Here are some of my favorites.

Smile by Alexandra Mears

Click on the picture to enlarge and look at the detail, especially the "wallpaper" behind the figure.

Ladies Novel by Alexandra Mears

This seemed to be a favorite of many, including me. The detail in this one is great also.

Have not Decided by James Knowles

Not always my favorite style, but the colors and the "action" caught me.

Landscape in Color by Ted Openshaw

Ted's work is always attention grabbing.

Wasteland by Ted Openshaw

Some of you saw this painting at my house during the holidays, on loan from the artist. Maybe enlarge this one too to understand it.
