Carringtons paintings in the Markay Gallery
Our Gallery year draws to a close with the large scale paintings of Joni Carrington. The Albany resident is no stranger to Jackson County. Shes shown at Foothills for many years and captured Peoples Choice two years ago. She took the Best of Show at the Coal Festival Art Show in Wellston this past September. This award is sponsored by Southern Hills Arts Council.
Joni teaches painting at her Gingerbread Studio in Albany. She also travels to Jackson weekly to give classes.
In addition to her painterly bent, Joni is an avid historian. She has traced Albany back to its earliest days. We were thrilled when Joni gave a presentation here in our Gallery in 2013 on the Underground Railroad, in conjunction with Jacksons Civil War 150 celebration.
Join us Friday, November 14 as well welcome Joni with a Reception in her honor. The exhibit will be open through December 21. Regular Gallery hours are Wednesdays to Fridays from Noon to 5 p.m. and weekends from 1 to 3 p.m. Were always pleased to make special arrangements for groups. Just give us a call at 740-286-6355.
