This exhibition round includes works by Alabama Plein Air Artists which will be on view in the Third Floor West Gallery from September 25 – November 16, 2019.
“Alabama, Then and Now” is a commemorative and educational art exhibition of 30 original paintings in honor of Alabama’s Bicentennial. All paintings were created by members of the Alabama Plein Air Artists (APAA) who gather monthly around the state, to paint en plein air (in the “open air”) outdoors, from life. The paintings depict landmarks and regions of Alabama where these artists live or have traveled and painted from life. Subjects include bridges and barns; gins and mills; the natural beauty of Alabama; industry; architecture; sports; government; and popular culture.
From October 2018 – November 2019, this juried exhibition will tour through Hoover; Fort Payne; Athens; Tuscaloosa; the State Capitol in Montgomery; Pike Road; Auburn; Mobile; Hamilton; and Huntsville; with most venues hosting Opening Receptions. Many paintings will be for sale. Entry is free and open to the public.
This exhibition is officially endorsed by the Alabama Bicentennial Commission.
