[ARCHIVED] First Friday at the Gadsden Museum of Art


On Friday March 1st, from 5-7 pm  the Gadsden Museum of Art will host the opening receptions for  the following exhibits: Unlikely Confluence in the Main Gallery will feature three artists Spencer Moody,  Ben Cuevas, and Michael Lorsung; the second floor will feature art by award-winning watercolor artist Caroline Wang ; the Leo Reynolds Gallery will feature By a Departing Light  by Andy Jordan; and the Courtyard Galleries will have Doilies by Victoria Nichols in the first room and local resident Jill Braddy Boatwright will display The History of Hokes Bluff  based on the book of the same name in the second room.

   Unlikely Confluence is a show featuring 3 artists that are popular contemporary artist that are working outside of the South brought together to show different aspects of their life specific to where they are living.  Spencer Moody a well know singer , describes as works that explore contemplation, struggle, depression, impotence, ecstasy, and the end of the world. “I need my work to be lush and colorful. A total surrender to the southern California idealized and solidified in my own youthful mind long ago “A land of cars, sunsets, and palm trees.” Ben Cuevas’s knitted veins are a continuation of his sculptural work of knitted anatomy. His work is often autobiographical and was inspired by his own identity and sense of self. Michael Lorsung’s work is a loose exploration of the word "median" as it pertains to liminal spaces both literal and figurative.  He is interested in an investigation of culture that reads between the lines of iconography and overt imagery and seeks out the un-noticed, unspoken that exists in these spaces.

Caroline Wang is an award-winning watercolor artist as well as a NASA retired engineer and researcher. Caroline is a diverse artist, incorporating Asian culture into Western art and painting whatever subject inspires her. She experiments with different types of materials for her artwork. Her original paintings have been on exhibition throughout many cities within the Southeastern United States. Her work has won several awards including Best in Show at the Tennessee Valley Art Association’s 31st National Art Competition.

 Andy Jordan’s paintings materialize memories into visual representations of color and light. Through meditation, images are conjured, hues are mixed, and applications of paint assert form and depth. Large strokes abandon attachment to the mind’s assertions. Destruction blurs form and time abstracts the clarity of memory.

 Victoria Nichols’s Doilies are a mixture of bronze and aluminum sculptures and will be held in the Courtyard Gallery.

Jill Boatwright will display Hokes Bluff memorabilia and historical items.

Free open to the public with refreshments.
