Meeting Date


Pintlala Historical Association Meeting
 

January 20, 2:30 p.m.

Pintlala Historical Association will meet on Sunday, January 20, 2019 at Pintlala Baptist Church Fellowship Hall at 2:30.  Our program will be presented by Clydetta Fulmer, a local free-lance artist and neighbor of Pintlala residents. Her studio on Butler Mill Road  “Longview” is housed in an original church building built by her great grandfather in 1916. If I am not mistaken, PHA has had a tour of her studio many years ago.

Clydetta is a versatile artist, working in media including pencil drawings, pastel and oil paintings, but her primary focus in on creating commissioned clay sculptures that are ultimately cast in bronze. Her works are owned and exhibited by a wide range of venues. Clydetta shares , “In my career I have completed more than one hundred commissioned sculptures. More than forty of these have been public sculpture  commissions.” Of these works, there are ten full length life-sized figures of adults, fourteen full-length life-sized figures of children, thirty life-sized portrait busts, three heroic sized portrait busts, two miniatures, twelve half life-sized figures of children and twenty-five bas reliefs.

Her work is represented in Pintlala at the Public Library and in Montgomery in several locations, but the most prominent are life-sized figures of Major Lemuel Purnell Montgomery, located at the County Courthouse and for whom Montgomery County is named.

Her current commission is a life-sized figure of General Richard Montgomery for whom the City of Montgomery is named. Confusing!  Pays to know your history. 

Clydetta earned a B. A. degree in art from Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee in 1970. 

We are proud to have her working in our community!
