Nall's Alice in Wonderland Exhibit is open at Troy University's  Nall Museum and Gallery

In 1975, Nall discovered the enchanting and mysterious “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass”. He read and studied the text with great passion, intrigued by the author, Lewis Carroll and the main character, Alice. After a decade of of studying pencil drawings at Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and the University of Alabama, and being mentored by surrealist painter Salvador Dali, Nall embarked on the creation of what he hails the most important series of his lifetime: “Alice in Wonderland”.

From the Hive
Recent Works by Beverly West Leach

From the Hive is a collection of works exploring a connected flow of images, shapes, colors, and materials built from years of developing a visual vocabulary tied to Mother Nature. The interconnectedness of nature creates a hive of activity within her studio practice, where she creates imagery that becomes metaphorical and open to the viewer’s interpretation. Featured works include mixed-media collage, photography, motion graphics, and chalk pastel.
