Monthly Art Exhibits presented by 


Leslie Poner's The Hidden: Looking isn't Always Seeing 
August 1 - 29

Leslie Ponder, a multi-talented local artist offers an art show to stimulate your mind and heart.  The Hidden: Looking isn't Always Seeing was created with the artist's belief that art should imitate life and emotions. “I like to create from past experiences and feelings whether it is making paintings or pottery.  Art should make you think, question, and feel inspired.  This collection of work has unique characteristics, that...when looked at closely can convey separate meaning to each viewer.  You can look and be entertained but you must search to understand."  Viewing is free to the public during regular Garden hours.  

An art reception to meet the artists will be held on  Sunday, August 5 at 3-5 pm.

Call 636-4100 for more information.


French Country/Farmhouse paintings by Rose Sitton
August 1 - 30


The enchanting paintings in this show display just one of Rose's many styles and techniques. These art works have a chalky finish with a mix of pigments and texture to evoke familiar subjects from her imagination.   

Other works of Rose include realism, nonrepresentational, and contemporary abstracts.  Other works can be viewed in various galleries in Mississippi and Tennessee.
