Rebekah Bynum, Danielle Damson, Ann Steverson and Jonny Scull
The Little Green Store and Gallery invites you to “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” an art exhibit and reception on July 6th from 5pm to 9pm. The exhibit features local artists Rebekah Bynum, Danielle Damson, Jonny Scull and Ann Steverson. Bynum is an oil artist who focuses on everyday beauty. She says, “I want the viewer to see my work and remember feelings that get pushed to the side during our normal business days.” Damson is a Contemporary Realist whose subject matters range from still life, to figurative, landscape and portraiture. Scull is a Traditional Realist, painting portraits, figure and still life. Steverson’s contemporary work bridges the classical beauty with the contemporary painting practices of today. Don’t miss the debut of several new pieces by each artist including landscapes, still-life’s and nudes. Stunning art, delicious bites from Carlton’s Catering and live music by Daniel Adamek create the perfect pairing for a dreamy summer’s night. We hope to see you there!
In the early 1900s, Huntsville, Alabama, had more spindles than any other city in the South. Cotton fields and mills made the city a major competitor in the textile industry. Entire mill villages sprang up around the factories to house workers and their families. Many of these village buildings are now iconic community landmarks, such as the revitalized Lowe Mill arts facility and the Merrimack Mill Village Historic District. The “lintheads,” a demeaning moniker villagers wore as a badge of honor, were hard workers. Their lives were fraught with hardships, from slavery and child labor to factory fires and shutdowns. They endured job-related injuries and illnesses, strikes and the Great Depression. Author Terri L. French details the lives, history and legacy of the workers.
