“The Starving Artist Expo was created to give new artists a local opportunity to display their talents,” said Lisa Brown Ingram, a local potter and one of the event’s organizers. “After the holidays, there is a long dry spell when there are few show opportunities, essentially a period of starvation. This event aims to meet that need and connect Rome to new local artists and amazing art you may not see in your everyday life.”
In addition to the show, canned and dry goods will be accepted at the event for donation to needy families in the Northwest Georgia.
The Roman Starving Artist Expo takes place from noon to 7 p.m. on March 24 at 7 Coral Ave.
