The Athens-Clarke County Library Quiet Gallery is proud to present the work of artist Tex S. Crawford during the months of February and March.

Crawford is a self-taught artist who lives in Hull, Georgia and transforms all types of reclaimed and found materials into a wide array of whimsical creations. "Art saved my life, I just want to share it with the world!" 

Tex loves to create and to inspire others to create "So that they may feel the magic and nourishment of creation for themselves! Everything I create is on loan from the universe, I'm very grateful for each and every creation I'm granted!"

Tex has exhibited his art at many venues over the past few years, most recently at the Quinlan Visual Arts Center in the Folk Art Show, and in The Great Folk Art Parade at the Steffen Thomas Museum of Art.

Please join us in the Appleton Auditorium on Sunday, February 10 at 2:30 to hear the artist talk about his work. A reception with light refreshments will follow, and the Quiet Gallery on the library’s second floor will open the exhibition, which will run through March 24. Crawford will also teach a children’s art workshop at the library at 11:00 on Saturday, February 9.

The artist talk/reception and exhibition are free and open to the public. For further information, visit www.athenslibrary.org/rslathens, email vburns@athenslibrary.org, or call 706 613 3650 x343. The Athens-Clarke County Library is located at 2025 Baxter Street, Athens.
