Local artist featured in Troy

The Johnson Center for the Arts in Troy will host a reception for “String Notes and Brush Strokes,” a solo show by Andalusia artist Margo Russell, and “Art of the State,” featuring work by art instructors across Alabama, from 4 until 6 p.m. Saturday. The public is invited.

“We have a lot of bluegrass pickers in our area and those who attend the Henderson Bluegrass Festivals might see themselves in one of Margo’s paintings,” Morgan Drinkard, arts center interim director, said. “Margo will attend the reception and will be available to answer questions about the process of her paintings. She will also bring a bluegrass band, The Tennessee Firearms, with her and they will play during the reception. Everyone should really enjoy them.”
