Show 616 – Best of Artists

From canvas and beads to chopped wood and furry cloth, so many mediums are simply await the right artist to craft them into their full potential.

Starts at 2:30 – In this episode, we share four of Alabama’s best artists, and it all starts with Corey Worden’s chainsaw. Corey is the man behind the spectacular statues (and sawdust) of Beneath the Bark in Elmore County. Corey harnesses the power of… well, power tools … to unearth the beauty held within stumps and logs.

Starts at 8:59 – Farther north, up in Anniston, Alabama, you’ll find Lucy Moore sewing up a storm to create a magnificent menagerie of plush toys and blankets. She’s designed hundreds of patterns to make sure her customers get exactly what they’re looking for, from aardvarks to zebras.

Starts at 15:15 – Harvest starts early in Baldwin County, but resident Rosemary Corte is constantly harvesting ideas for her jewelry line. It’s appropriately named Harvest Jewels, inspired by her farm background. It’s bohemian chic and perfect to wear at to a Farmers Federation meeting or a fancy celebration in the big city.

Starts at 22:47 – Heather Maples knows a life of agriculture, and those experiences pour out of her paintbrush and onto the canvas. She captures the unique personalities of cattle and other livestock for her Black Cow Art Studio, which she runs out of her home.
