Honoring and Remembering
A special exhibit honoring and remembering key HAL members who have since passed away. Works by Chuck Long, Jerry Brown, Teresia Reid, and Jean Wood are being exhibited.
Please join us in Honoring and Remembering these fine artists and help us celebrate their work.
Chuck was very well known not only in Huntsville. A native of Georgia, Chuck Long was an experienced and innovative artist who attended the Harris School of Art in Nashville, Tennessee. Upon graduation he worked as a freelance artis, designer, and illustrator in both San Francisco and Los Angeles before settling in Alabama. He resided in Huntsville, where he taught both watercolor and oil painting for well over 25 years.
His book, WATERCOLOR SUCCESS! 52 essential lessons for creating great paintings was published in 2005 by North Light Books.
The four paintings in this exhibition were donated to the Huntsville Art League for sale by Joan Funk. We extend our many thanks to Joan for her generosity!
She was a well-known artist in town for many years and exhibited with HAL for a while. The large dark painting was painted in the 1970’s, the river scene was done in the 1990’s, and the floral painting was painted a few years ago. She was 94 by then. We thought it would be interesting to see the different approaches of her painting style throughout the years.
Jean Wood’s paintings are the property of Sallie Estes and Patti Eldridge.
Her wonderful watercolor paintings of Huntsville were well known. She mostly painted scenes of the city of Huntsville but also landscapes and flowers. Teresia was very active as an artist and on the board at HAL for many years and she was loved for her energy and willingness to help anybody. She is still missed after all this time.
He worked as a respected and well-known oil painter in Huntsville for many years. Jerry also was an exhibitor at HAL for a few years until he occupied a studio on the 3rd floor of Lowe Mill. He painted everything from landscapes, animals, flowers, people, and cityscapes.
His son donated a few of his paintings to HAL for sale. We are grateful for that generous gesture!
