Come take a walk on the sentimental side of life as OAG's WENDY REID of Art Haven presents her 'Inspired By' exhibit at the Alton Mill Gallery through March.

"Welcome to the Show and Welcome to my new series: 'Awe My Heart!'
In this series I investigated and recorded a moment in time. It is paramount that we grab opportunities to be kind and sentimental. Things are so fast paced in today's world.
What inspired me to create this series? It's my love for people, mother nature, a love of nurture and change. A snapshot in time can be change, frozen. This allows the viewer to see what I see. These sculptures are the intersection of my family, love, art, and soul. As you might have guessed they all have clues and symbols. Come take a walk on the sentimental side of life and see a frozen piece of time, with relevance and beauty. See things through this artist's eye."
