Sneak Peak of Stacey Saed Ferguson’s Artwork

Stacey Saed Ferguson is an extremely inspired native Memphian and a mother of three sons. Her painting style is primarily self-taught and reflects her love for color, movement and texture. With a 50th birthday approaching, Stacey has taken a non-conventional road to find her highest artistic expression; including high school and college art classes which planted the seeds that would bloom much later into her present expressions within her arts community. Being an artist is a dream deferred for Stacey and she approaches the canvas with the same wholehearted energy that she does her life.

This piece will be available for purchase September 28th between 5:30-8:30 at Art for Jobs.

Sneak Peak of Glenda Brown’s Artwork

After years of painting on canvas, Glenda discovered the remarkable experience of painting on copper. As she researched the qualities of copper, Glenda discovered that copper, unlike canvas or wood, is a very durable support that cannot be affected by humidity or temperature. Glenda sands, grinds, cleans and cuts heavy gauge copper sheets for each of her paintings. The colors in her paintings lay close to the smooth surface with tiny sparkles of copper peeking out. Paintings on copper will last generations and are unique expressions of the fine art talents and creativity of Glenda Brown.

The two paintings above will be available for sale September 28, 2017 from 5:30-8:30 at Art for Jobs!

Glenda’s work can be seen at her studio, Gallery 202 Franklin Tennessee, Portraits Inc. Birmingham Alabama. You may contact Glenda at 901 606-1692, gbrownstudio@me.com or http://www.glendabrown.com
