Women’s Art Collective
The Women’s Art Collective was created by a group of women seeking supportive critique and creative inspiration for their artwork in Hattiesburg, Mississippi in 2011.
Pat Abernathy “Joyful Perspectives”
“This exhibit represents the culmination of my nearly three year journey of studying and painting flowers in an interior with windows. I chose this subject after seeing a beautiful flower arrangement in front of a window in an art gallery. The scene was my inspiration for this series of painting about color and light. Art is and has always been such an integral part of my life and gives me so much joy that my hope is that the viewers will see my love of color and light and feel joyful and happy while looking.”
Rex Turner “T-Rex Driftwood Sculpture”
Turner’s outsider art is almost exclusively made from driftwood, reclaimed wood and found objects. The artist was initially inspired by local artists Bruce Larsen and Lawrence Trotter and has no formal training. “Although most of my work is coastal oriented, myths and legends are used as a creative base for many pieces.”
