Jackson artists plan joint show at state botanical gardens

Two Jackson County artists will be having a joint showing this summer at the Georgia Botanical Gardens in Athens. Photos by Chuck Murphy and paintings by Babs McDonald will be on display July 9 - August 12. Murphy is a noted wildlife photographer and McDonald does paintings from his photographs. The joint show is titled: Camera and Canvas: The artistic synergy of lens and brush and will display 20 paired pieces of art. An opening reception is slated for July 9 at 2 p.m. McDonald will speak during that event about how she used painting to help recovery from a stroke. Murphy teaches photography part-time and has had his wildlife photos published in magazines in books around the country.
