HANCEVILLE, Ala. — The Evelyn Burrow Museum at Wallace State Community College in Hanceville, Ala., is hosting its first Regional Sculptors Invitational Exhibit. Acclaimed regional sculptors, including the world-renowned artist Nall, have lent the museum numerous pieces of artwork that range from metalwork and glass to wood and paper and more.
“This is a marvelous show, and one that rivals exhibits at larger museums,” said Donny Wilson, director of the Evelyn Burrow Museum. “We’ve worked very hard to show a variety of mediums and artistic styles through this exhibit. The caliber of artists we’ve attracted is amazing and the pieces we have on display will have something to suit everyone’s taste. And, if it’s not to their taste, they’ll definitely have something to talk about.”
There are 17 sculptors participating in the exhibit, with most showing four pieces of artwork. Artists in the exhibit include:
– Everett Cox of Huntsville
– Glenn Dasher of Hunstville
– Casey Downing Jr., of Mobile
– Jude Johnston (NovOntus) of Cullman
– Dale Lewis of Oneonta
– Christopher McNulty of Opelika
