Guests can stop by the Healing Arts Gallery Wall on the second-floor skywalk to see the works of Lucy Weigle until Aug. 29.

With a degree in art from Auburn University as a start, Weigle has continued her pursuit of painting and teaching as a career. She established herself as an artist and leader in both Augusta and the state of Georgia. She often strives to keep art as an important part of her community life. Her specialties include acrylic and often mixed media, combining paints and collage to create texture and pattern.

She has been voted Best Artist by readers of Augusta Magazine and Columbia County Magazine. In 2005, four of her paintings were featured in the movie “Diary of a Mad Black Woman.” The paintings were leased from Abstein Gallery in Atlanta, where the movie was filmed. In 2015, two paintings were selected to exhibit in the office of the former Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal.
