About the show
ArtsRevive is pleased to open registration for its 19th annual juried art competition. The show has grown significantly over the past several years in size, popularity and most importantly in the quality of the submissions. Alabama Artists: Roots and Wings is a reflection of that growth. Entry for 2021 is open to artists who are from Alabama although they may now live and work elsewhere (Wings) as well as those artists who currently live in Alabama (Roots).
The ArtsRevive show has built a reputation for its varied sampling of Alabama talent at its finest. The show will be held at ArtsRevive Cultural Arts Center located at 3 Church Street in the heart of historic downtown Selma.
Mary H Reed has been a featured artist in over 64 fine art events, including juried festivals in the Southeast, solo exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions.
Mary has received numerous awards including First in Fine Art at the 14th annual Carrollton, Georgia Fine Arts Festival and First in Painting at Tupelo's Gumtree Festival. Mary has studied under a number of painters during her lifetime in art including her father, James C Keith, the late Billy Kirk, Jason Saunders, Dawn Whitelaw, Camille Przewodek, David Shevlino, Maralyn Wilson and many others.
Mary's works are collected coast-to-coast and internationally and are present in the permanent collections of individuals from the Eastern Seaboard to the Far East at Daikin International, Tokyo.
Mary has been involved with Decatur, Alabama's Carnegie Visual Arts Center since 2003 and currently serves as Exhibitions Coordinator. Since 2013, she has served on the steering committee and in 2014 became the Artist Liaison with River Clay Fine Arts Festival, also in Decatur, Alabama.
