Through Sept. 10
Arts Center of Cannon County
Meg Garrett is a landscape painter taking inspiration from the natural and rural landscape of Middle Tennessee. Meg is a self-taught artist, who started painting seven years ago. Though she came to painting late in life she has dedicated herself to her art. Meg takes great pleasure in the process of painting and in that process captures a moment in time from the observation of an old barn to that of a quiet creek. She works exclusively in oil paints. Highlights from the show include images from Raven Point on the Fiery Gizzard Trail, the Great Falls on the Caney Fork, the Harpeth River, and rock outcroppings in Woodbury.
