Cindy Griffin Autry – Artist Spotlight at the Marshall County Art Guild

Cindy Autry is a Tennessee born and raised artist with a love for art in every aspect. She has always had a passion for art, even at a noticeably early age. Her drawings started out as doodles, sketches, and even drawings of sample house plans, which were published in the Sunday Living Section of the Tennessean. Being a self-taught artist, she did have a little help along the way with some very talented artists. Those artists and teachers were Ms. Lasater, Ann Ford, and Pat Cathey, who taught more about the heart and soul of art.

After high school graduation, she attended MTSU and started out taking classes in art history, design and drawing during her course study. As the years went by, she picked back up her passion for art and at this time the Marshall County Art Guild was working towards providing a store front presence and she wanted to be a part of the exciting happenings that it would bring to the square and to the community.

Over the years, she has been a member of the Marshall County Art Guild, past president, and is the current Kids Art Instructor for the Guild. Her passion is to nurture young artists who are exploring their interests in the arts. Hopefully, they will carry that passion on throughout their lifetime as well.

For the months of June and July, students from the Kids Class are being featured. Their artwork is on display in the West Gallery.

Marshall County Art Guild’s hours are Monday-Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
