Chloe York is the Featured Artist of the 39th Magic City Art Connection.
Against the rustic backdrop of this national historic landmark in Birmingham, Alabama, Chloe’s paintings pop! Her pieces are an artful portal into the depths of our planet’s oceans, and have been influenced by the time she’s spent living waterside. The work comes to life on the wall transporting the viewer to a bio-diverse environment or composition of her creation.
Chloe was named MCAC’s Best in Show juried winner last year.
