Artist Lisa Hancock's exhibit in the Danielle Juzan Gallery is an exploration of the boundaries - and lack thereof - between ourselves and our environment. In serene, ethereal layers of watercolor, Hancock seeks to bring awareness to our own ability to foster the growth and development of ecosystems. In her own words, "nature has a transcendental quality, and I strive to illustrate this inner connection between man and surroundings".
Hancock received her BFA from the University of Alabama and got her MFA in painting at the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2006. She has participated in numerous juried and solo shows and has exhibited her work at the Mobile Museum of Art. Most recently, you may remember her as the champion of the first annual LoDa Squares sidewalk chalk art competition at SouthSounds in 2016. She lives and works in Mobile in the company of her husband and two children.
Hancock's exhibition will be on display through Friday, July 28. Meet the artist during ArtWalk on Friday, July 14 (6 - 9 PM)!

Kathleen Cope is a local artist whose passion for cars and love of photography come together in her Skinny Gallery exhibit this July. Cope is an auto aficionado, and she finds much of her inspiration at car shows, drag races, and junkyards. Using both traditional media and digital manipulation, Cope edits her photographs to fit the image she has in her mind.
Cope is largely self-taught and has been taking photographs since she was in fifth grade looking to earn her photography badge in the Girl Scouts. Since then she has honed her skills through workshops and constant study. Her work can be found in private and commercial collections across the US. You can see more or buy prints at www.kathleencope.com.

This June, the Skinny Gallery will feature works by Cat Pope - an artist madly in love with color relationships, dramatic energy, and confident brushwork. Her childhood in Clearwater, Florida instilled in her a love for the natural landscape and the unique sense of light found along the Gulf Coast.
Most known for her oil paintings, Cat’s work depicts the coastal South using post-impressionist and contemporary realist techniques. Layers of color, bold shapes, and manipulation of surface texture illustrate a fascination with the nature of the medium itself and its rapturous capacity for memory.
Cat currently lives and works from her studio in Mobile, Alabama. When not in the midst of creating, Cat enjoys teaching workshops at the Eastern Shore Art Center (Fairhope, AL), and the Mobile Museum of Art (Mobile, AL). Her works have been collected throughout the United States.
According to Cat, "As an artist I cherish adventure, and I am continually enchanted by color and its power to translate atmosphere. This exhibition, as with most of my work, explores the coastal lifestyle, past and present, with the soul of a simpler, romanticized era. Industries of travel and entertainment may change, but nostalgia never grows old."
The exhibition will be on display through Friday, June 30. Meet the artist during ArtWalk on Friday, June 9 (6 - 9 PM)! For more information and images, Cat’s portfolio can be found on her website: www.catpope.com.
