Featuring regional artists Liz Lane, Joan Curtis, Lorrie Lane, Ashley Spotswood, Sister Art Pottery and many more, the event will have available for purchase a large collection of postcard sized art perfect for sending to one’s Valentine.

Support nature and clean water

“Art is fed by nature, and without it, art would have little foundation to grow,” said Liz Lane, owner of Liz Lane Gallery. “As artists, we owe our profession to the air we breathe, the earth we walk on, the water we drink, and the beautiful rivers Black Warrior Riverkeeper protects.”

On the evening of February 8th, visitors will enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres. There is no admission cost, but optional donations to Black Warrior Riverkeeper will be accepted.

“We are so grateful that talented artists love nature the way we do and have donated time, ideas and original art to support local water quality,” said Charles Scribner, executive director of Black Warrior Riverkeeper.
