Gretchen Wilson Tuck works to be shown at Marlor House

Allied Arts invites you to an exhibition of drawings and paintings by artist Gretchen Wilson-Tuck. Wilson-Tuck attributes the quality of her work to being a combination of close attention to the smallest detail, as well as her “being warm, vibrant, emotional, and a positive reflective listener, which helps her put clients at ease...when commissioning a work of art.” She says, “If I don’t listen, I don’t make good art.” An opening reception honoring the artist will be held from 1:00-3:00 pm on Sunday, September 11 at the John Marlor Arts Center, 201 North Wayne Street, Milledgeville and the public is invited to attend.
