Painting For A Purpose – The Auction Begins!

Southern Accents would like to thank everyone who joined us on Saturday, October 5th to “Paint For A Purpose”. We would especially like to thank artist Mellissa Meeks for organizing this fun event which is serving as a fund raiser for Southern Accents new children’s charity.

Mellissa pre-sketched two over sized works of art and invited everyone to stop by and add a few brushstrokes! At the end of the day, Mellissa returned to her home in Huntsville, Alabama, taking the two pieces with her. She spent the next few days adding the finishing touches. Both works of art are now back in our showroom and on display. We are accepting bids on each work through October 31st.

The first work of art is Mellissa’s rendition of Southern Accents infamous 1955 Chevy. This work which was retitled “Wild Blue Yonder” is painted on a 4′ x 4′ canvas of framed salvaged wood. Current high bid on this artwork is $550.

The second work of art titled “Looking Out My Back Door” is a sketch that reflects downtown Cullman, Alabama. This piece is painted on a salvaged “Shabby Chic” style wood door. The door has a rustic, salvaged ceiling tin panel attached to the top that served as a canvas for the downtown scene. Current high bid on this artwork is $150.
