FAIRHOPE – The Eastern Shore Art Center’s First Friday Art Walk returns Friday, March 5 with new exhibits and music.

Art Walk will include the Members' Juried Show. This annual exhibit showcases various work from the Artist Level members of the Eastern Shore Art Association. Artist members were able to submit three original works done in any media. This year's judge is Lucy Gafford, Mobile Arts Council executive director. Awards will be given during Art Walk night at 6:30.

The work will be on display through April 30.

Another new exhibit is “Mind of Marchman” artwork by Fred Marchman. The ESAC celebrates the life and work of Mobile Bay area’s most prolific artist. Vibrant abstracts and evocative thematical work allow visitors a glimpse of the late painter, sculptor, and illustrator.

The work will be on display through April 30.

A returning exhibit in the Nall Collection is Alabama Art featuring Charlie Lucas. Iconic and self-taught artist Lucas has been creating art since his childhood but began creating art seriously after a debilitating accident in 1948. Working with cast-off materials, old tin, bicycle wheels, mufflers, wire and junk, he became known as Charlie “Tin Man” Lucas.

His paintings and sculptures have been exhibited both nationally and internationally. This display is made possible by a gift by artist Nall to the Eastern Shore Art Center in 2020 and all exhibiting work is for sale to benefit ESAC and Alabama Artists. Work will be on display through March 27.

Anyone wanting more information on First Friday can call 251-928-2228 or go to www.esartcenter.org or the ESAC Facebook, or Twitter pages.
