The paintings will be on display through Dec. 29 and the exhibit is open to the public free of charge.
“I am absolutely thrilled at this tremendous opportunity to have my art on display at the Tennessee State Museum,” said Wariner. “My work has been exhibited occasionally here-and-there over the years but never like this or at this level. This truly is a first for me…I am very grateful.”
