Albany- The Albany Area Arts Council is hosting the 4th Annual Southwest Georgia Regional Art Show and Sale. It's sponsored by Merck and features artists from Southwest Georgia and the surrounding area.

Out of almost 140 entries, a painting by an Albany artist won best in show.

"This whole show is just beautiful. I was just honored to be a part of it, and even more flattered to place in it. I lot of friends of mine are exhibiting here, and some of the work I haven't seen. Like I said I was just flattered," says artist David Lanier, who's Egret Portrait won Best in Show.

The show is being held at Peppermint Hall and will run until May 20th. It's open Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM. Most of the pieces are for sale.
