Stephanie McDairmant will display her abstract artwork from Oct. 3-27 at the Southside Art League. McDairmant is a self-taught artist who creates her paintings without brushes, instead using only her breath. She shares that, “This is either an inside joke between God and me about me being full of hot air or a literal expelling of emotion on canvas. Probably both.” The results are creations that seem to be alive, her fans say. Her most cherished honor was winning the window painting contest at a Holiday Inn when she was 10. She keeps busy with events in the Chicago area as well as Indianapolis, Michigan, New York City and Los Angeles. She won the Mallow Run Artist Series wine label contest in 2017. Most of her paintings can be seen at www.canaryinacoalmineart.com. An open house will be held from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12, at the gallery, 299 E. Broadway St., Greenwood. Regular hours are 11 a.m.3 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday. Info: 317-882-5562.
