JCA hosts artists’ reception this week

The Johnson Center for the Arts will host a reception for exhibiting artists Charles Adams and Guadalupe Lanning Robinson from 6 until 8 p.m. Thursday. The public is invited.

Brenda Campbell, JCA director, said it is an honor to welcome these two outstanding, award-winning artists to the Johnson Center.

“Charles is a local artist whose work is familiar to many but his exhibit, ‘Glass Through the Years,’ includes pieces from his early work in the late 1950s and early 1960s.,” Campbell said. “Guadalupe Robinson’s exhibit ‘To Cotton from Clay’ traces her artistic journey from her amazing work in clay to her equally amazing ‘cotton’ quilts.”

Adams is the 2019 TroyFest Best of Show Award winner and Guadalupe Robinson is the current Tennessee Craft Fair Stand-Out-Award winner.

“We are excited to have these two artists who work in different mediums to create incredible artwork,” Campbell said. “They each bring to their work a sense of yesterday in a contemporary world. We are looking forward to hearing each of them talk about the creative process of their work and their passion for their work. We encourage everyone to come join us on Thursday night. Charles’s exhibition is on the upper level and Guadalupe’s is on the lower level. It will be very easy to keep social distance while viewing the exhibits.”

The Johnson Center for the Arts is open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday. Admission is free.
