Inspired by Faith and Roots

Song of the Soul by Mary Ann Casey

FLORENCE – Mary Ann Casey is a writer, painter, and sculptor from Auburn, Alabama who was born and raised in the deep South.  Casey’s expressive, contemporary paintings are portrayed through a variety of media.   A collection of her paintings will be displayed at Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts January 6 - February 17.   

Casey relies on her faith and Southern roots for inspiration. Her belief in the importance of family and faith are themes that run throughout her work.  Casey has displayed throughout the south, including the Wiregrass Art Museum in Dothan, the Johnson Center for the Arts in Troy, and the African American Museum in Dallas, TX. 

Casey hopes that the paintings in this collection “become a collaboration between me and my viewers… I surrender my spirit to a sense of energy, love, oneness, hope and peace.”  

The Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts is open to the public Monday - Friday from 9am-4pm and on Sundays from 1-4pm.  There is no admission charge. The art center is located at 217 E. Tuscaloosa St. Florence, AL and can be reached at 256-760-6379 for more information.
