By Gary Lloyd
TRUSSVILLE — Trussville resident Tiki Kirk was selected as one of the artists to paint doors for the Huntsville Botanical Garden’s upcoming summer exhibit, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.”
A total of 64 doors will be used to construct a children’s maze in the garden. The doors were donated by Habitat for Humanity and artists were asked to use other reclaimed materials to create their interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland” book.
The exhibit will be on display May 1 through Aug. 31.
Kirk incorporated roofing shingles, swimming pool noodles, jewelry, old wooden picture frames and an antique globe in completing her two two-sided pieces for the exhibit.
Featured yearly in the International Interior Design Association Artrageous events, Kirk also contributes her paintings to The Alabama Kidney Foundation Second Chance Prom Benefits and other charities. Kirk’s art was previously featured at the Huntsville Botanical Garden during its 2012 Green Things & Butterfly Wings Exhibit.
Kirk is a 1982 Hewitt-Trussville High School graduate.
