Events for Monday, Sep 25, 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.
