On Thursday, artist Zdenko Krtić, his wife Magdalena, and professor of art history at Auburn University, Dr. Kathryn Floyd, met in Troy to attend the opening reception for Krtić’s new exhibit, “Shoulder Surfing,” at the Johnson Center for the Arts.

Andrea Pack, JCA director, said, although Krtić has exhibited in Troy recently at the International Art Center, this body of work is completely new and will travel to various locations around the state in 2024.

“The Johnson Center for the Arts is blessed to be the first show featuring these new works which help us to examine what seeing really looks like,” Pack said. “Krtic’s photos are taken from real places and objects but in a way that blurs or abstracts the form in a dreamlike way.”

Krtic¿ is honored as a 2024 Alabama Fellowship artist, so this exhibition is not only sponsored by the Chapman Foundation, but also by the Alabama State Council on the Arts in supporting the artist’s new works.

“This exhibit will be up through May 1 so we hope to see many visitors come and appreciate this work before it is taken to its next location,” Pack said.

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