Opening Reception for Wild Beauty: Native Wildflowers Through the Eyes of Trailer McQuilkin and Walter Anderson

Opening Reception for Wild Beauty: Native Wildflowers Through the Eyes of Trailer McQuilkin and Walter Anderson

8/10/2017 5:30 PM

Wild Beauty brings together two artists whose work celebrates the natural splendor of the Mississippi Gulf Coast – Trailer McQuilkin and Walter Anderson. These artists, separated by many years, have found inspiration in the natural flora of the region. McQuilkin’s work features plants that are indigenous to the region, some of which you may recognize and some you may not. McQuilkin’s work has been paired with works by Walter Anderson depicting similar plants. These two artists draw inspiration from the world around them. We hope that this exhibition will encourage the viewer to take a closer look at their world and to appreciate the beauty of nature.

Trailer McQuilkin will also be signing copies of his book of Wildflower Botanical Sculpture at the reception.
