Artist Talk and Discussion Panel
Wednesday, March 18 3:30PM
Exhibition on display
January 20 – March 26, 2015
The Georgine Clarke Alabama Artists Gallery is proud to showcase the work of twelve artists from around Alabama working in diverse mediums, ranging from pinhole photography to cast iron sculpture. We invite you to meet the artists and engage in conversation about how the bravery and courage that led to the Selma to Montgomery Voting Rights marches informs the artwork of contemporary Alabama artists.
Artists in the exhibit include: Larry Allen, Nathaniel Allen, Charmagne Andrews, Art Bacon, Tony Bingham, Leonard Dawson, Winfred Hawkins, Darius Hill, John “Jahni” Moore, Clifton Pearson, E. Bruce Phillips, and Cleve Webber.
A panel discussion, moderated by Kelli Morgan, Birmingham Museum of Art Ford Dissertation Fellow in Residence, will begin at 3:30pm on Wednesday March 18, and will be followed by an open discussion/ Q&A session. After the gallery talk, we encourage guests to attend a 5:30pm lecture by MacArthur Fellow Rick Lowe at the Rosa Parks Museum.
The exhibition is free and open to the public and is on display through March 26. The Georgine Clarke Alabama Artists Gallery is located on the first floor of the RSA Tower in downtown Montgomery and is open Monday-Friday from 8:00am-5:00pm.
