ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — The University of Georgia's art museum plans to exhibit the works of a little-known artist from Alabama.

The exhibition at the Georgia Museum of Art at UGA is titled "The Prints of Mary Wallace Kirk" and is set to run from July 19 through Oct. 12. Kirk was born in Tuscumbia, Alabama, and lived most of her life there.

She produced very detailed depictions of the countryside for about 10 years in the 1930s and 1940s. The exhibition will feature about 30 of her works, including watercolors, etched plates and drawings as well as printed etchings.

Independent scholar Stephen J. Goldfarb researched Kirk's life and work and curated the exhibition. He wrote an essay on her life and career for an issue of the Georgia Museum of Art Bulletin.
