One of the most anticipated exhibits of the year is on display at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center until Jan. 3, 2012.

Expressions From the Soul features artists such as Linda Sale, Cathy Quest, Jane Conkling, Marilyn Brumley, Judy Mason, Chris Snoddy, Martha Spurlock, Carol Noeding, Don Collins, Jim Friddle, Gail Sloan, Bill Barrick, Dale Ousley, Mike Wells, Don Collier, Satch Grimley, Beth Prichard, Linda Henry, Marcia Matcham, Jenn Parker, Pat Stroud and Sherri Woodard Coffey.

“All of the Expressions From the Soul artists are from Texas and are professional artists, which means they earn their living from their art. There will be oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, but also metal sculpture, jewelry, glass, and pottery,” said Exhibit Curator C.B. Williams.

“We’ve been scouring galleries, art shows and outdoor festivals over the past year for artists to include as part of this exhibit. We looked for quality artists. And, like years past, if you love it you can take it home with you,” Williams added.

All of the pieces will be on sale with prices ranging from $50 to $30,000.

“This has been such a popular show that we had to limit artists to no more than three pieces,” said Heather Castagna, Executive Director of the DHCC. “The best part of purchasing a piece of art, is that a portion of the proceeds benefit our programs. You get quality artwork that helps our community.”

Expressions From the Soul will be on display during regular museum hours, Tuesday - Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 - 5 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children and seniors. For more information, call 817-817-599-6168 or visit
