The Mobile Arts Council will feature artists Ben Kaiser and Cat Pope in their new show, “Home and Heritage,” and Sahar Alford’s exhibition, “Universal Beauty,” during the month of March in MAC’s Gallery at the Saenger’s Room 1927.
According to Kaiser and Pope, artists often look back on their childhoods for inspiration. They think of loved ones. They think of the places where they grew up; places that mean or meant something. They think about where they came from and the people that matter most.
“Home and Heritage,” is a show of growth. It is a depiction of pasts and beginnings; of hometowns and explorations; and of colors that take us back to a place we remember. Kaiser and Pope hope that in seeing their work you not only see a part of them, but connect to a piece that resonates with you, too.
Like painting, Alford’s love and passion for dance came at a very early age. Her March exhibition is a series of realistic paintings with the theme of “Universal Beauty.” The purpose is to capture beauty, strength and dreams of females from around the world through different dance styles and cultures.
Gallery hours at Room 1927 are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays through Fridays. The exhibitions will hang from March 6th through the 30th, with a special reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, March 13th, LoDa ArtWalk night.
