Poetic Visions: Mark Fletcher @ TCC Fine Art Gallery
Jan 10 @ 12:30 pm – Feb 14 @ 4:30 pm

Mark Fletcher creates wonderful drawings, painting and vessels in clay inspired by his adventures in natural settings. Mark writes, “My method is to draw and write detailed observations directly from life. Then in my studio, I re-create these experiences in stoneware vessels and sculptures, poems and paintings.” Mark is a multitalented artist, moving easily from three dimensional sculptured ceramics, to drawing, and to painting in various media. Always willing to share his expertise with others, Mark’s teaching resume includes TCC, FSU, the Senior Center, and others. In addition, he expresses his love of nature in his poetry which he often incorporates in his fine art pieces.

GARY SCZERBANIEWICZ: FOSSILIZED INTENT @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Jan 12 – May 18 all-day
GARY SCZERBANIEWICZ: FOSSILIZED INTENT @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum

Gary Sczerbaniewicz creates small sculptural works that showcase hybrid architecture as the subject matter. His scale-model replicas of brick building fragments and brick masonry façade catalogue a range of vignettes that have been culled from his experience living in a rust-belt city for more than a decade. In this grouping of works, disconnected doors, blocked windows, shadows of staircases, collapsed walls, eroded rooflines, and bloated surfaces shrug off their originally designed roles and stand as petrified strata which seem to gently mock the beholder.
Exhibition admission: $10 for nonmember adults (includes 6 exhibitions); free for Gadsden Arts Center & Museum members, free for children ages 17 and under. Exhibition admission-free days: March 2 / April 6 / May 4
Open Tuesdays – Saturdays 10am-5pm

LESLIE WALLACE-COON SCULPTURE @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Jan 12 – May 18 all-day
LESLIE WALLACE-COON SCULPTURE @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum

Leslie Wallace-Coon takes inspiration from everyday life, of the visible world of people, animals, and her surroundings. Her sculptures and bas-reliefs tell stories of the humorous contractions and extremes of relationships she witnesses between people and their pets. Domestic animals are an inspiration because of the humorous, physical, and “superimposed” human characteristics she sees in them. Her goal as an artist is to create work that compels the viewer to look, laugh, and become caught up the details. Wallace-Coon has work in public and private collections in the region and owns the Bowery Art Gallery in Apalachicola.
Exhibition admission: $10 for nonmember adults (includes 6 exhibitions); free for Gadsden Arts Center & Museum members, free for children ages 17 and under. Exhibition admission-free days: March 2 / April 6 / May 4

Norman Rockwell in the 1960s @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Jan 12 – May 18 all-day

The Gadsden Arts Center & Museum is pleased to host Norman Rockwell in the 1960s, an exhibition of prints organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, focusing on illustrations he created for magazines during that turbulent decade. In 1963, the artist ended his almost 5 decade-long association with The Saturday Evening Post and began to search for new artistic challenges. Rockwell left behind his beloved story-telling scenes popular in the Post and threw himself into the visual documentation of social issues and current events like school integration, the moon landing, and the murder of civil rights workers.
Exhibition admission: $10 for nonmember adults (includes 6 exhibitions); free for Gadsden Arts Center & Museum members, free for children ages 17 and under. Exhibition admission-free days: March 2 / April 6 / May 4
