    The University of West Alabama will host “Israel 2003: Walking in His Footsteps” art exhibit in Webb Hall Gallery this summer. Artist Miriam McClung was on hand to welcome guests at the opening reception June 20.

    “Israel 2003: Walking in His Footsteps” is the story of one woman’s extraordinary journey to “walk where He walked, to smell the flowers He smelled, to see the water He walked on, to see the mountains and sea He saw, and to breathe the air He breathed.”

    McClung is a native of Birmingham, Ala., and a graduate of the University of Alabama, with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts. Her work over the past 20 years focuses on biblical themes done in oil and pastels. She studied at the Art Students League in New York and at the Farnsworth School in Sarasota. Her work has been exhibited in Japan, in Dallas at the Museum of Biblical Arts, and throughout the Southeast.

    The exhibit is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. during the months of June and July. Visitor parking is available in front of Webb Hall.

    For more information on the exhibit, contact Vivian D. Hauser or call 205-652-3611.
