For some people, their Valentine’s Day shopping was all done in one place.

On Saturday, Feb. 3. the Riverchase Women’s Club hosted their 12th Annual Riverchase Loves Art at the Riverchase Country Club, featured art in mediums ranging from pottery to glass to leather to paints. Each artist from the show was hand-picked.

“Continued partnership with the Riverchase Country Club also allowed us to have one of the best art shows we have ever had,” Art Show Chair Lynne Cooper said. “Each year just gets better and better.”

This year, they hosted 50 talented local artists, some returning and some new. The money raised at the event allows the Riverchase Women’s Club to support their chosen charities as well as the art community, Cooper said.

RIVERCHASE LOVES ART – Spotlight on new artist GG Burns for February 3rd show

For Hoover artist G.G. Burns, art is an innate force … first bubbling out, as a 2-year olds’ crayon drawings to over 50 years of illustrating, painting and creating digital designs as a fashion illustrator, graphic designer and most recently as a mixed media artist. Today, GG specializes in holiday themed artwork that she calls “functional art – art you can use.”

Originally from Collinsville AL, GG lived in Birmingham in the late 70’s through the early 80’s. With a degree in Fashion Merchandising from Southern Institute, GG began her career as a fashion illustrator working for retails stores such as New Ideal and Gayfers Inc., but later studied technical and digital design, which lead to employment for companies such as QMS Konica-Minolta in Mobile, AL, Lexmark International, Inc. and J. Peterman, Inc., in Lexington, Kentucky.

Over the past few years, GG has used her years of marketing skills to brand her designs on products that have been sold all over the world. She also paints custom illustrations … pets, children and house portraits … even bridal gowns. Her complete immersions into new mediums and concepts have allowed her to cope with several serious heath challenges. GG’s favorite quote is “art helps me breath” in a world filled with stress and uncertainly.

is a rising young artist from Birmingham, Alabama who received her BFA from Auburn University.  An internship at the Shelby County Arts Council in Columbiana, Alabama, is where she experienced a working community studio and found her interest in pursuing pottery as a career.  Interaction with experienced potters and artists at the Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts in New Castle, Maine served as an opportunity to explore, experiment, and reflect.   Lindsey displays her work throughout Alabama, participating in over thirty local art shows and events annually including the Moss Rock Festival, River Clay Fine Arts Festival, and the Birmingham Artwalk. She creates decorative pottery that is functional, allowing each piece to be used daily or elegantly displayed to accentuate a room.

Artist Preview for the Febuary 3, 2018 RIVERCHASE LOVES ART show. Spotlight on award winning KAMI WATSON – fiber artist.

Screen Shot 2018-01-16 at 11.02.19 PM  A nomadic past with a focus on environmental conservation and humanitarian services has exposed Kami to global influences in design and culture and has fostered her desire to create functional and visual art with an ecological sensitivity.

As a second generation fiber artist, she freely explores the traditional art of wet felting, the fusing of raw fibers into a textile form with soap, water, and agitation, as well as the contemporary techniques of nuno (fabric) and laminate (multi fabric layer) felting.

​She combines renewable natural fiber resources, reclaimed silk sari and clothing fabrics, and her own hand dyed silk fabrics and fibers to organically create each of her works of art. She allows the materials she uses, and influences and experiences in her life, past and present, to guide her instinctively in color and design.

​An award winning fiber artist, Kami currently resides in Alabama, where she has been creating and teaching in her studio since 2014. Her work is available at juried fine art shows, and in galleries around the United States.
