The Limestone County Archives & Athens-Limestone County Tourism is delighted to announce a very special art exhibit displayed in the Limestone County Archives in conjunction with The Way We Worked - Athens. "How Have You Made Your Mark? A Study of Hands" by Morgan County artist Lee Nabors is open now in the Archives office at 102 W. Washington St., Athens and will be available to view during Archives hours, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Contact Rebekah Davis at 256-233-6404.
A note from the artist recounting the exhibit:
This exhibit consists of approximately 50 oil paintings of the hands of amazing individuals. These people represent hundreds of others who go above and beyond in their professional and everyday life for the greater good. It is a cross-section of what it takes to be and build a community, any community.
Because each person’s hand and handprint are uniquely theirs, I believe the hands are the symbol and thus the story of an individual’s life and work. As the focus of this project, the subject’s hands will reflect the life, passions and influence that he/she has had or continues to have on the local and, in some cases, the global community. They continue to make their mark. It is my hope that when the paintings hang as a collection, we will each be inspired to ask ourselves …“The Question At Hand: How Have You Made Your Mark?”
