October’s exhibit in the Southwest Community College lobby gallery, Webster Campus, will feature Franklin artist Karen Albig Smith. Smith is a member of the not-for-profit Macon County Art Association Uptown Gallery in Franklin. The show was developed to demonstrate the use of photos as inspiration for artist’s work. The photos from which the art is rendered are also on display.

Part of the exhibit contains a series of portraits in acrylic and pastel of her daughter. In addition, is a foal portrayal and a pastel entitled “Designing Rams,” all completed from photo inspiration. The painting of the foal, “Orphan” was completed from a photo by local photographer, Hollis Walker. The mare was bitten by a timber rattler shortly after the photo was taken and died – hence the title of the painting.
