She started making hats and purses about 15 years ago, and eventually graduated to quilting. Long-time market vendor and first-time featured artist at MAC, Parker's quilts will hang on display in the Small Room this November. Be sure to stop by and take a look at her bold handcrafted designs.

Recent Throwdown attendees may have noticed local photographer Vincent Lawson at work, snapping photos of the artists in action. This October, Lawson will display his most recent collection in MAC's Small Room.

Lawson typically focuses on human subjects in his work - his award-winning 2014 exhibit "Our Neighbors" captured stark, honest moments in the lives of Mobile's homeless. The collection was the product of over 15 years of walking downtown and talking to homeless men and women. In "Floral Intercourse," Lawson turns away from the human subject and instead seeks to capture the "abstract, colorful, and ambiguous nature" of the flower.

Meet the artist on ArtWalk night, October 13th, from 6 - 9 PM. The show will be available to see from 9 AM - 5 PM on weekdays throughout the month and on Saturdays during Market in the Park hours.

"Super Star + Money = Dread" lays bare Guy Marcinkowski's emotional observations through mixed media art and paintings, both abstract and figurative. This show represents a 3 year creative journey of the artist, telling the story of the rise and fall of the individual in today’s society. The other works feautred in the exhibition, not relating to "Superstar + Money = Dread," were crafted during the same time period.

Marcinkowski says, "I am a conceptual American artist inspired by color, music, nature, current events and other artists. My job is to deepen the mystery. Half of my process is creating from my own stream of conscience the rest being labor and manipulating materials. I feel I can something with colors, shapes, and occasionally words."

Meet the artist on ArtWalk night, October 13th, from 6 - 9 PM. The show will be available to see from 9 AM - 5 PM on weekdays throughout the month of October and on Saturdays during Market in the Park hours.
