Join us for the opening reception of Charles Smith: Black Hands/I Am in the Regional Gallery, The New Landscape in Front Center and the Back Room Gallery, and Landscapes from the MMofA Collection in the Larkins Auditorium Vestibule.
Looking back at a 40 year career in clay, Black Hands/I Am examines Mobile native Charles Smith's expressive ideas about color, shape, and ornament. He was included in the Alabama Public Television 2009 program Alabama Craft Tradition and Innovation.
The work presented in The New Landscape represents a few of today's artists using the landscape as inspiration. Landscape painting represents the world we see, whether real or imagined. As early as 1500 BCE, virtually all civilizations have tried to capture through art their own geographical location, to reflect how they see the world. Today landscape painting explores themes of untouched nature, as well as the sprawl of overcrowded cities and highways. Location: The Mobile Museum of Art. Start/End Time: 6:30, 8:30
