OCTOBER EXHIBITS AT THE DINAH WASHINGTON CULTURAL ARTS CENTER

The Arts Council Gallery and The University of Alabama Gallery

First Friday opening receptions are October 2 from 5-8 p.m. in both galleries.

The Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center will be following the guidelines set forth by the City of Tuscaloosa so patrons should be prepared to wear a mask and practice social distancing inside the venue.

The Arts Council Gallery:
The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa will present Stephanie Kirkland: “Windswept: Abstract Landscapes” at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center’s Arts Council Gallery from October 2-30, 2020. The exhibit will open with a reception during First Friday on October 2 from 5-8 p.m. This collection of paintings in acrylic is inspired by the artist’s travels during a road trip out West, including hiking through Glacier, Zion, and Grand Canyon national parks.

The University of Alabama Gallery:
The University of Alabama Gallery is proud to present Stacey Holloway: Flight of the Elephant & Other Tales, October 2 – November 20, 2020, in the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center. This delightful and intriguing show, guest curated by Paul Barrett, will also be part of the fall’s inaugural First Friday Art Walk, October 2, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. in downtown Tuscaloosa. Holloways’ exhibition was created to accompany an animated video that tells the story of the migration of a creative and determined elephant, Amelia, the main character of Flight of the Elephant. In addition, Holloway brought in visual artists to create collaborative works for the exhibit including Alabama artists Doug Barrett, Doug Baulos, Lanette Blankenship, Merrilee Challiss, Gary Chapman, Derek Cracco, Becki Delgado, Guthrie F. Holmes, Savannah Smith, Emily Stroud and Michael Swann. Several large- and small-scale works were created specifically for this presentation and will be on view for the first time.
