31st Art in Gadsden Regional Exhibition of Fine Art @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Jun 15 – Aug 24 all-day

This annual tradition of Gadsden Arts showcases recent art by the area’s top artists and artists new to the region. Art in Gadsden reached its 30th year in 2018, a milestone for the museum as this was the foundation for the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum. The founders of the Art in Gadsden exhibition, Beth Appleton and David Harbaugh, wanted to bring fine art to Gadsden County, foster the careers of local artists, and draw the community together through this special event. Beginning in 1989, Art in Gadsden was displayed in empty downtown storefronts in Quincy, all put together and organized by a dedicated and all volunteer community. This exhibition draws visitors and patrons from across the region each year, and is an exciting opportunity for regional artists to share their work and for Gadsden Arts to celebrate the creativity within our community.

The juror for the 31st Art in Gadsden will be Anne Gilroy. Anne Gilroy is the curator of the Thomas Center Galleries and 352Arts for the City of Gainesville, Florida. Anne also works as a painter and writer, having completed a successful career writing and designing campaigns of public awareness for social justice issues.

Marina Brown – The Human Poem @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Jun 17 all-day

In every way, every day, we humans create poems. Visual, auditory, literary and musical…sometimes, merely the act of being alive is sufficient to be a truly ‘human poem.’

Marina Brown dissects this exhibition into two groupings. The first is Dance: whether occurring in the street, on a stage, across a bridge, in a barnyard, or a church—or simply within a lover’s heart—the feelings are the same. A pounding, a pulsing, the quickening of the rhythm of life that joins people from around the world, the young and old, in a never-ending dance—a visual poem. The second is Portraits: some formal, some evocative, one mysterious, two tender. For Brown, the exploration of the soul through the faces of people of every permutation, stripe and age is poetry on display; the unabashed act of self-presentation. A human poem of courage. Brown has also published poetry books that are available for sale in the Gadsden Arts Museum Shop.
