On Jan. 8, “Amy Watts: Cowgirl Heaven,” an exhibit of paintings by artist Amy Watts, opens in the Borderlands Gallery.
Working from a studio in Sam Booth’s home town of Statham, Watts produces colorful paintings reflecting her view of the West. An accomplished rider, Watts often includes her own horses in her mosaic-like compositions.
The exhibit will be up through Apr. 7.
On Jan. 17, the museum will host its “Third Thursday Evening Lecture” with National Geographic photographer Stephen Alvarez.
A photographer and filmmaker, Alvarez produces global stories about exploration, adventure and culture. He has been a National Geographic photographer since 1995 and has published over a dozen stories with the magazine including the discovery of an ancient Incan mummy in Peru, the deepest cave in the world near the Black Sea, a jungle expedition through Central America’s longest cave, the Moai of Easter Island under the Milky Way and the panoramic capitals of Europe.
The evening lecture is free for Booth members and included in the price of admission for non-members.
Booth Western museum is located at 501 Museum Drive in Cartersville.
