Ala. Arts Radio: Self-Taught Artist Robena Perry
To highlight this Year of Alabama Music, the Arts Council Gallery featured exhibit, Music Makers: A Celebration for the Year of Alabama Music is at the Gallery now and runs through July 7th. The gallery is located at 201 Monroe St. in Montgomery. The exhibit is an eclectic combination that includes paintings of musicians, music oriented quilts, metal sculpture, and a varied assortment of musical instruments made by Alabamians (pdf of exhibit program).
In this radio program, Visual Arts Program Manager and Gallery Director Georgine Clarke interviews self-taught artist Robena Perry. Perry has contributed her unusual sculpture "The World's Smallest Band" made of over a hundred Barbie, Ken, G. I. Joe, and other similar dolls that serves as a centerpiece for the exhibit.
Robena talks about her ideas behind the making of the "The World's Smallest Band" and other smaller vignettes that she calls rooms. She developed these displays to help with her line of clothing products that she sells at various events.
