Marina Brown – The Human Poem @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
May 21 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.

LESLIE WALLACE-COON SCULPTURE @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
May 25 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
May 25 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
