Featured artist Provie Musso at Carroll Place Art Walk
February 01, 2007
Artist Provie Musso’s bright, cheery, and whimsical art brings smiles to the residents at Carroll Place.
Carroll Place, a Mercy Medical assisted living community, recently held their second Art Walk featuring artist Provie Alexander Musso. Residents enjoyed Musso’s beautiful and highly acclaimed art exploding with vibrant color and flair. The show contained artwork of mixed mediums including paint and found novelty objects ranging from brass keys to bottle caps. Angelic subjects with jeweled halos and other unique and playful creations captured the viewers’ imagination.
As a skilled art therapist and teacher, Musso blends her passion for life with the therapeutic aspects of art. She also offers art classes to children and adults at the Bay Rivers Art Guild in Daphne. “There is a lot of whimsy in my work. It makes people smile. I am Catholic and love the prayers, liturgy and sacraments of the church. They are part of my life everyday. Madonna, saints, baby Jesus and angels show up in my work often reflecting my faith, my belief in God all around us and the mystery of it all,” explained Musso.
Carroll Place’s Recreational Program Coordinator, Amanda Barfield, organized the event, fashioned after the city of Fairhope’s “First Friday Art Walk.” Artists will be featured bi-monthly to empower and inspire residents into sharing their talents and artistry. Refreshments and music complemented the event.
Carroll Place, one of Mercy Medical’s four assisted living communities, is located in Fairhope at 50 Spring Run Road. For more information, please call 251-928-5555 or go online at mercymedical.com/CarrollPlace.
