Aynslee Moon Smithee March Art Talks at MVAC
March 16 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Aynslee Moon Smithee will be featured at Mountain Valley Arts Council’s main gallery at 440 Gunter Avenue in Guntersville on March 16th from 12:30 – 1:30 PM. This ART TALKS is free to the public, art fans and artists alike.
Aynslee is an artist, mother, pastor, and teacher. She has a B.F.A. from the University of Mississippi and an M.F.A. from the University of Alabama. During the week she teaches preschool, elementary, and middle school art at Holy Spirit Regional Catholic School and on the weekends she serves as a licensed local pastor at Valley United Methodist Church.
Her artwork has been included in juried exhibitions around the country and has become part of several private, corporate, and museum collections throughout the years, including CBS College Sports and the permanent collection of the Wiregrass Museum of Art in Dothan, Alabama.
Aynslee also creates artwork that is a part of the liturgy at Valley UMC, serving to beautify the spaces within the church, to illustrate sermons, and to inspire congregation members as they walk their spiritual paths.
Her medium for most of her artistic career has been oil paint, but in recent years she has focused on creating mixed media work primarily using pen and watercolor. Her inspiration comes from nature, songs, dreams, stories, and watching the growing lives of her children unfold.
These monthly ART TALKS are funded by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts, City of Guntersville, and generous Marshall County businesses and MVAC members.
