For the artists who are members of Kudzu Art Zone, the work they create is subjective: Each viewer has his or her own impressions of a piece. In the gallery's latest exhibit, viewers can get a little insight into the artists' minds.

"The Artist's Intention" is a display of works that highlights not only the artwork and various mediums in which they are presented, but what the artist has captured or the story behind a piece as well.

Each piece on display -- there are 35 created by 21 different artists, some with multiple works -- is accompanied by a brief description of the artist's intention.

"Some of them have five words, some of them have two paragraphs," said Kudzu member and silk artist Anne Gordon, who has two pieces on display.

"The Artist's Intention" is Kudzu Art Zone's final exhibit of the year and will be on display through Dec. 17. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and the exhibit is free to attend.
