Please join us Friday, October 1st, from 5PM to 8PM here at Boutwell Recording Studios, for DESPERATION, an original art show by Rebecca Davis, and John Lytle Wilson.

We will be here in the studio, enjoying the fascinating new works by these talented artists, and sipping on nothing finer than the champagne of beers, unless you consider Pabst Blue Ribbon to be finer than High Life…
We’ll also have a few snacks for you grazers of …finger foods, and of course, we serve up scintillating conversation, and laughs-a-plenty with the most talented and interesting people IN THE WORLD, right here in Birmingham, Alabama!

If you are the type to check out an artist’s website before the show, have I got a link for you! John Lytle Wilson has a lovely website with his artist statement, bio, and images of his legendary work: http://www.johnlytlewilson.com/

If you prefer to have your mind blown in person, you’ll be glad to know that Rebecca Davis is a secretive, private person who does not share anything on the internet. I bet you can’t wait to see what she has in store for you on October 1st!
