Events for Tuesday, Aug 01, 2017
The Alabama School of the Arts at University of Mobile is hosting the work of artist Jamie Adams in an exhibit called “Cooper.” This exhibit will be on display Aug. 21-Sept. 29 in the Marilyn Foley Art Gallery. An Art Talk will be held with Adams on Sept. 28 at 11 a.m. with a reception following. Both the exhibit and Art Talk are free and open to the public. The Donald Gallery is open Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is located in Martin Hall on campus at University of Mobile, 5735 College Pkwy. Adams is a sculptor and potter whose artistic process derives from a childhood spent in a profoundly religious family in the Deep South. His art is characterized by vibrant colors, allusions to art history and pop culture, and an insistent use of new technologies in his work. “This body of work is inspired by the untimely passing of my brother in 2001.” explained Adams. “We first met when I was 12, and this work is both an exploration of my rumination on our unshared childhood, as well as imaginings of the man he might have been.” For information about the show or visual art programs at University of Mobile, contact Phillip Counselman, associate professor of art, at email@example.com or 251.442.2283.

Rene Culler’s site-specific work is a mural in glass that celebrates the species-rich Delta and its atmospheric qualities. The Delta is a changeling environment which is constantly shaped and molded by the weather and waterways. As the grasses, almost transparent, catch the light, Culler’s drawings and painting in glass suggest the landscape that southern Alabama holds so dear. The composition is a wall of natural light utilized as a glass canvas for drawing, painting and printing with vitreous enamels. Slumped dimensional panels and blown glass abstractly portray the location’s dimensionality.

NEW LOCATION! Bernheim Hall at the Ben May Main branch of the Mobile Public Library in downtown Mobile is the venue for MOJO's August Jazz Jambalaya. Sean Deitrich, (a multi-talented artist: keyboards, vocals, author and blogger), will perform the music of the great Ray Charles in a concert setting. Fred Domulot (drums), Tom Latenser (bass) and Chuck Schwarz (sax) will join him to interpret Charles' jazz and blues hits. Because food is not permitted in Bernheim Hall, MOJO recommends that members and guest visit one of the many fine restaurants and cafes within walking distance of the Library before or after the concert.

“Beauty in USA’s Back Yard” refers to the beauty Ron and Dawn have discovered at USA’s very own Glenn Sabastian Nature Trail. It is their hope that by this exhibit, they can make more people aware of the beauty of the nature trail. All but two of the photographs in this exhibit were taken at the nature trail (the other two were taken on USA Campus). The nature trail has been a part of the USA campus for nearly 30 years. Efforts to officially recognize the trail began with geography major Amy Milam in 2006. Amy mapped the trails and held numerous fundraisers that helped to pay for trail improvements. She also received approval to name the trail for Dr. Glenn Sebastian. In the fall of 2011, Brian Allred, assistant director of Campus Recreation, spearheaded efforts to bring the nature trail project to fruition. With substantial financial support from the Student Government Association, the Glenn Sebastian Nature Trail is now a reality.
Ron and Dawn have been interested in photography their whole lives and are both well-traveled, having taken pictures the world over. Interested in many facets of photography, they have a special love for the beauty of God’s nature, which is exemplified by the Glenn Sabastian Nature Trail.
The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular library hours.
