Biennial exhibit closes Friday

Published 11:40 pm Wednesday, October 23, 2013

There are only two more days before the curtain comes down on the “Celebrating Contemporary Art in Alabama: The Biennial 2013” exhibition at the Johnson Center for the Arts.

The “Biennial” exhibition is organized and curated by the Johnson Center for the Arts every two years.

The very popular 2013 exhibition closes at 5 p.m. Friday and, perhaps with it, goes the last opportunity ever to see these 45 Alabama State Council on the Arts Fellowship award winners in a combined show.

“‘The Biennial 2013’ is the third in the series and has more than 100 pieces of artwork from these distinguished Alabama artists and four are from Troy — Walter Black, Russell Everett, Duane Paxson and Larry Percy,” said Morgan Drinkard, Johnson Center executive director. “‘The Biennial 2013’ includes woodwork, paintings, photographs, sculpture, fabric collages, mixed media works and clay.

“We encourage everyone who has not seen ‘The Biennial 2013’ to take advantage the opportunity to visit the Johnson Center today and Friday. Those who have seen the exhibit might want to come one last time.

“The exhibit is outstanding and we are proud to be able to exhibit the works of 45 distinguished Alabama artists in one show.”

The exhibit is sponsored in part by the Alabama State Council on the Arts.

“Celebrating Contemporary Art in Alabama: The Biennial 2013” may be viewed from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. today and Friday. Admission is free.
