Christie O'Grady Exhibit Now Showing

Chattanooga artist Christie O'Grady is interested in "vibrant energy filled with infinite potential," and viewing her work is something akin to feeling a small earthquake's tremors in one's brain. The spectator becomes involved in her energetic expression of what she describes as "natural patterns...from ocean washed sand, wood grains, rocks, clumps of tall grasses, and clouds" that are layered with other "compositional elements in patterns like tree rings or reflections in water."

Christie graduated from Memphis College of Art; opened a studio in San Francisco; held one-woman shows in Chattanooga and Santa Fe, New Mexico; and recently returned to Chattanooga to open a studio here.

The ArtBox Gallery in Rising Fawn, GA has generously loaned seven of Ms. O'Grady's paintings to the library for the next few weeks so that visitors will be able to admire and wonder at her unique creations.

Come by the library to view her work, and visit her website to see other examples of her collection. Don't miss this extraordinary exhibit!
