Carolyn McFarlin has lived in East Atlanta for many years and seen a lot of changes. She has shown her colorful acrylics around Atlanta at various galleries over that time. Now, this month she will bring her artwork home to the neighborhood, literally. It will be on display for the whole month of May at the East Atlanta Library in a show sponsored by the Friends of East Atlanta Library in cooperation with the Atlanta Fulton Public Library System. The Friends will also be hosting a special Artist Reception on Saturday May 10th at 3pm with wine and other refreshments.
Carolyn says, “It is God who does these works . . . What I do is co-create.” In them you will see angels and other spiritual images. The artist hopes to lift the spirits of each person who views the artwork.
McFarlin has learned by regularly drawing and painting with several prominent artists in Atlanta and has been exhibited in one-woman shows and group exhibits several times a year. While continuing the process of creating art and sharing it with others, she also continues her quest for artistic and spiritual growth, focusing on meditation, communion with nature and interpretation of eternal truths.
This “angel art” show will be on the gallery wall in the meeting room and open for viewing during library hours. Note, however, that the room is used at various times for programs and when it is not being used, visitors will have to request access at the circulation desk. The library is located at 400 Flat Shoals Ave. at the round-about in the East Atlanta Village. Art lovers and all in the community are invited to come to the reception on May 10th to meet the artist.
