"Flowers for Your Sweetheart" by local artist Ann Currey

Artist: Ann Currey

Medium: Oil on canvas

"My grandmother instilled a love of art and travel in me," says Chattanooga artist Ann Currey. "Art has enabled me to indulge both of those loves and in some way, honor my grandmother's love. Underlying all my work is a profound gratitude for the beauty surrounding us, particularly in the Southeast."
