Painting the Town

Painting the town has become a tradition during the Selma Pilgrimage, and Robine Wright of Birmingham was one of 27 Alabama Plein Air Artists to participate this year. 

She chose to paint the First Presbyterian Church tower (below) for one of her works. In the background, you can see the First Baptist Church (Lauderdale Street) tower. 


This year was Robine's first visit here with the group, which hails from across the state. In addition to the plein air artists, Robine is a member of the Mountain Brook Art Association.

The paintings are available for purchase at a "Wet Paint" sale at the Selma Art Guild Gallery at the end of Pilgrimage.
