Annette Holland, of Odenville, is the Leeds Arts Council’s featured artist in December. The public is invited to the opening reception at the Leeds Arts Center on Sunday, December 4, 2016, 1:30-3:30 pm, to view her beautiful paintings. Admission is free.
The artist is a wife, mother, and grandmother who paints. Her sons bought paints for her Christmas gift one year. She came home from a cross country trip with her husband and decided it was time to try out the paints. She had no idea where to start, so took a class at Michael’s. Her family encouraged her after her first painting. She also took classes from Wesley Dickman. She was told to not waste time with classes, but to just paint.
Annette was a member of the Odenville Art Club and has painted with students at Odenville and Ashville Elementary Schools, in hopes of encouraging them. Her advice is, “If you have ever thought about painting, try it!”
Ms. Holland’s work will be on exhibit through December 29, 2016.
The Arts Center is located at 8140 Parkway Drive, in downtown Leeds. Call the center at 205-699-1892 to confirm opening hours.
