Art at the Garden

Current Exhibits

Laura Walker | Paintings

June – Mid-September | Heritage Hall

Laura Walker does art with meaning, art with emotion, art with a soul. She has always lived a creative life- drawing all the way through school and college. For 8 years she was the manager at the Art Shop Around the Corner in Cullman, where she also taught art classes 5 days a week. After realizing that her passion lay in doing the art instead of teaching about art, Laura gave up her classes to focus on painting custom orders and selling her playful “Funny Farm Animals” series at art festivals. Laura’s art can be viewed at the Art Shop Around the Corner in Cullman, and at the Artists Incorporated Gallery at the Shops at Grand River. She has 2 murals at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens, one in the “See Rocket City” birdhouse and one in the Guest Center. You can follow her online using the hashtag: #artwithasoul
