Artist shows South Georgia work

November 6, 2003
Albany- The works of Annie Greene are at the Albany Museum of Art.

Greene spent many childhood summers on her grandparents farm in Adel. The 37 works are a compilation of memories from those days.

Her unique pictures are made with yarn, a style she introduced to her students in the 70's.

"When I saw how well they enjoyed the yarn, I decided I would try it," Greene said. "After I got into it, I tried later to go back to painting, and then people, when I would go to art exhibits, they would say bring the yarns."

The Blue Billy Hillgrass Band played at the reception tonight. You can see Georgia Life in the 1940's through January 18.
