Summer affords more leisure time to explore the community, visit museums, as well as all the fun-in-the-sun activities.

For a special treat, enjoying the work of a world-renowned artist from Alabama.

The work of Nall, who grew up in Troy, is on display at the Evelyn Burrow Museum as part of “Alabama Art: Inside Out,” at Wallace State Community College.

“Alabama Art: Inside Out” was initiated by the acclaimed artist to show the world the work of fellow Alabama artists. The exhibition contains 14 portraits by Nall of artists such as William Christenberry, Betty Sue Matthews, Clifton Pearson, Mose T and Kathryn Tucker Windham. Works by those artists appear alongside each of his portraits.

Nall has traveled the world during a career of creating art that spans 50 years.

His work includes detailed drawings, botanical paintings, mosaics and engravings. His work expresses not only the places he traveled, but his home state.

This is an opportunity to see not only the creations of one of the world’s great artists, but to celebrate a home-state resident who has brought favorable recognition to Alabama and its many other artists.

Wallace State and the Evelyn Burrow Museum worked with Troy University to make this exhibit available for summer. We encourage everyone to visit and enjoy the work of a celebrated artist.
