Art at the Garden

Current Exhibits

Lakshmi Nallamala | Painter

Heritage Hall

Join us Sunday, July 24, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. for a meet and greet with painter, Lakshmi Nallamala.
We are very excited to introduce the beautiful paintings Lakshmi Nallamala has created.

Lakshmi Kakani Nallamala, born in India and raised in Alabama, is inspired by the fullness of life she sees in creation. The process of combining seemingly random pigments to paint beautiful images reminds her of how God redeems broken things of this world and makes them whole.

As a retired radiologist, Lakshmi captures the light, shadow, colors, and movement she sees in flowers, landscapes, still lifes, and figures in her oil studies. She has taken workshops with accomplished artists including Nancy Franke, Gina Brown, Majorie Hicks, Barbara Davis, Dawn Whitelaw, Jennifer Taylor and others.

Lakshmi is currently the executive director of Lincoln Village Ministry (LVM), which helps under-resourced families in her community. You can learn more about the mission of this inner city ministry at Sales from her artwork support Lincoln Village and other local non-profit organizations.

Her work can be found in her studio, various art shows, and boutiques in Memphis,Tennessee and Huntsville, Alabama. Contact Lakshmi at, through her website, or instagram @lknallamalapaintings

All proceeds go towards furthering the mission of the Garden.
