Cahaba Inspired: Art Exhibition Presented by Arts Trussville and the Cahaba River Society

The Cahaba River Society has partnered with Arts Trussville to present Cahaba Inspired, a juried exhibition at the Trussville Public Library featuring art inspired by the Cahaba River. The exhibition is free and open to the public from November 9th through November 30th.

We want to thank our new partner, Arts Trussville, and their stellar lead volunteer, Kathy Prince, for organizing this showcase of works from artists around the region. The exhibition is juried by Dr. Graham Boettcher, the R. Hugh Daniel Director of the Birmingham Museum of Art. 

Paintings, photographs, pastels, drawings, and mosaics explore our relation to water and nature, embodied by the Cahaba River. We hope the artwork inspires people to value and protect the Cahaba, an essential resource. You can read more about the show and the art in the exhibition announcement post
