Artist Shows Off Work in Tyler

A man who makes a living painting images of East Texas came home to show some of them off Sunday.

The works of Charles Criner have been on display at the Tyler Museum of Art for weeks now. Criner was raised in Athens, and many of his paintings reflect his time growing up there.

The paintings also represent a significant time in the life of many African Americans. Helping out with family day at the museum Sunday, Criner said it is important for younger generations to see his work and understand it's meaning.

Criner's art will be showcased at the TMA through February 29th.
