Mama and Charlie Mae in the Garden

  • “Mama and Charlie Mae in the Garden”

Greg Thompson Fine Art opens his annual exhibit of works by known Southern artists, including Ed Rice, Walter Anderson, John Alexander, William Dunlap, Glennray Tutor, Carroll Cloar, Clementine Hunter, Donald Roller Wilson, Robert Rector, Kendall Stallings and Theora Hamblett. I would be happy with work by any of these folk, especially Anderson and Cloar.

The gallery has scheduled some big doings around the opening of the show tomorrow: A luncheon tomorrow with William Dunlap, who’ll give a talk titled “Confessions of an Itinerant Painter,” followed by the Argenta ArtWalk reception 5-8 p.m. On Saturday, Dr. Richard Gruber of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, Dunlap and Glennray Tutor will give a gallery talk at 1 p.m.; tickets are $10. I’ll be out of town; any Candy fans who go and want to write something up, just comment below!
