With the sesquicentennial of the Civil War is upon us, the Marietta Museum of History will feature Glen Amos and Hubert Brown during the October First Friday Art Walk.
These two Cobb County artists will be showcasing and selling their creations.
Glen Amos, a local furniture craftsman, is also a chainsaw artist. He creates masterful art pieces from different types of wood, which is often found in Cobb County.
Hubert Brown is a folk artist who paints on canvas, bricks, shovels and other media. At Art Walk he will feature his paintings based on his grandmother’s memories of the Civil War. Brown grew up listening to his grandmother’s stories of first hand experiences of the War Between the States. He has interpreted her memories with the bright colors and haunting characters of his own self-taught style.
The 2013 First Friday Art Walk takes place on historic Marietta Square on the first Friday of each month from April to October. The Art Walk is a free, self-guided tour showcasing local original art.
Local artists are hosted by Marietta Square area restaurants, galleries, museums, venues and boutiques from 5pm to 9pm, rain or shine, and participating venues display an official Art Walk banner in their window.
