Magic City Art Connection

We went to the Magic City Art Connection today – here are a few pics:

This is a temporary installation by Christopher Fennell, a sculptor who makes use of materials that would otherwise be discarded forever:

There’s a pic of a bus shelter he made from three different old school busses, in Athens GA, here.

I wound up not taking too many pics, but this was an artist I don’t remember from before – S.A. Habib.  Some of these paintings had little fairy lights incorporated:

Looooved what John Lytle Wilson was showing, Bethanne Hill too.  We came home with this wonderful-wonderful piece by Martha Beadle – it’s Jonah and the whale:

Martha’s work is just so original. She had so many other great pieces – I especially liked one she had with Tallulah Bankhead on it too.  Nobody does what Martha does…anything like how she can do it!  Can’t wait to put this up in Shug’s room.  

One of the best parts of the art show was the art pieces submitted by schools in the area.  These wings:

…were by students at Erwin HS.  There’s a pair of wings made from spoons at the Mobile Museum of Art and what these students were able to accomplish is equally as gorgeous.
This one, called “Pencils Down” made of #2 pencils was made by students at the Altamont School:

…and this one, called “Carmadillo” is by students at the Alabama School of Fine Arts:

…as well as this one, called “Re-formation/deformation”.  It’s second-hand clothing over a wire armature:
