Art Demo at Aldersgate

Meridian, Miss. Aldersgate treated its residents to an art demonstration Wednesday afternoon.

Local artist Greg Cartmell was invited to share his talent with them, showing them how a painting progresses.

Cartmell says he frequently does this kind of thing as entertainment for conventions and groups.

"I've got a good buddy, Jim Harvey, is here," said Cartmell. "And Martha Ann Burdick and Jane Garrison. I know a lot of people here and so they're I ends and so it's kind of, you know, lots less formal than one of those."

Cartmell said he also hopes that people are inspired by his art and may even try painting for themselves.
