The Mobile Arts Council is hosting three exhibitions throughout March! Impressions by Carol George, Life Under the Sea by Susan Gibbs, and Love In Bloom by Sandy Holberg will hand in the Mobile Arts Council Gallery until March 31st, 2021. 

Impressions by Carol George is a collection of impressionistic acrylic paintings that focus primarily on landscapes. As a self-taught artist, she expresses herself in a painterly style. Bold colors and brush strokes can be found throughout her works.  

Susan Gibbs’ Life Under the Sea is a collection that has been 35 years in the making. One night after work, Susan found herself admiring the aquariums in B&B Pet Stop. It was here that she discovered an affinity for the colorful organisms that make up Life Under the Sea. With assistance from the internet, Susan has been able to travel under every body of water, from depths of thirty feet to seven miles. Using clay, she has translated her findings into expressions of what she has found. Susan says, “I do not try to recreate what I see, but rather how I feel about what I see.”  

Love in Bloom displays Sandy Holberg’s love for flowers and the natural world, filled as it is with sunlight, color and living things. These things bring her joy and happiness, and Sandy tries to express them with a few lines and liquid color. Sandy Holberg spent her early years with the flowers that surrounded her Northeast Mississippi home. Her Dad was a well-known horticulturist, and she captured much of his hybridized creations through her studies at the University of Alabama.  After brightening many a South Alabama home with her decorator’s talent, she resumed her garden passion with new images of the blossoms she loved which began her career.  

These exhibitions will be on display until March 31st, 2021 with extended gallery hours on March 12th from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and March 27th from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The Mobile Arts Council’s Gallery @ Room 1927 is open Wednesday – Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is located at 6 S Joachim St. Mobile, AL 36602.
