Some unique works of art are part of a regional exhibit in Cullman County.

According to a news release, the Evelyn Burrow Museum at Wallace State Community College is hosting its first Regional Sculptors Invitational Exhibit in Hanceville.

The museum includes many pieces of artwork from well-known regional sculptors, including the world-renowned artist Nall.

The artwork on display ranges from metalwork and glass, to wood and paper, and more.

“This is a marvelous show, and one that rivals exhibits at larger museums,” said Donny Wilson, director of the Evelyn Burrow Museum. “We’ve worked very hard to show a variety of mediums and artistic styles through this exhibit. The caliber of artists we’ve attracted is amazing and the pieces we have on display will have something to suit everyone’s taste. And, if it’s not to their taste, they’ll definitely have something to talk about.”

There are 17 sculptors taking part in the exhibit.

Most of the sculptors are showing four pieces of artwork.

The exhibit is now open, and will run through September 30, 2014.

Admission to the museum is free, and is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

The Evelyn Burrow Museum is located in the Ottis and Evelyn Burrow Center for the Fine and Performing Arts at Wallace State Community College.

The Center is located near the front of campus on the corner of Hwy 31 and College Drive.
