HUNTSVILLE, Ala.-- A gallery opening celebrates the work of local muralists. It was a collaboration that hopes to bring more creativity to town. Huntsville muralists showed off their work at the Wall to Wall gallery opening Saturday at Lowe Mill.

Proceeds from the silent auction during the reception will go to a new project Lowe Mille has its sight set on. Lowe Mill media director Sarah Cole said they have a some big things planned for the future.

"Right now we're actually in the process of renovating the exterior of the mill, that's our five year plan, and one of the things that we desperately need is an outdoor classroom space for several of our artists," said Cole.

One of those artists, Jahni Moore, collaborated with two other artists to do a live painting during the opening. He is also in favor of an outdoor classroom.

"Any time you have an outdoor classroom, any place, in the school, in the city, it's always a positive thing," he said.

Cole said the new space will be open to the community. It will provide yet another space the public and artists alike can come together and get their hands dirty.

"We can have outdoor classroom space for students who want to come and learn, it's just a different venue, a different setting that we can give the public and our artists to collaborate, to create," she said.

The gallery show's works will be on display and for sale in the Arts Huntsville gallery of the Von Braun Center through October 28th.
