Gadsden Museum of Art announces December exhibitions


The Gadsden Museum of Art will have the following shows on display starting December 3: Feeling Unreal by Ann Trondson in the main gallery and the Piano gallery, Elisabeth Pellathy located in the Leo Reynold’s gallery, The Annual FOCUS Photography Exhibit located in the hallway gallery, and Remixing Dreams: A Remix of Progress by Fred Barclay in the Second Floor gallery space. 

There will be a reception held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Dec. 3. 

ElisabethPellathyElisabeth Pellathy is a multi-disciplinary artist, utilizing drawing, printmaking, electronic media and digital fabrication in her work. Issues raised by the disappearance of species, language, culture and information are the catalyst for her visual explorations. As a first-generation American, she is keenly aware of the effort to preserve the disappearing, and the poetic slippage that often results. 

The annual FOCUS Photography exhibit is a juried exhibition hosted by the Museum and conducted every year in which photographers are selected to display their works in the exhibit, and then awarded based on the content and composition of the work. This year the show will be juried by the Professor of Photography at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, Mr. José Betancourt. 

AnnTrondson2Ann Trondson (°1976, Murfreesboro, United States) makes videos, photos, performances, and conceptual artworks. By combining the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, Trondson absorbs the constant barrage of synchronicities and moments that are a part of daily life and uses that force in her artistic practice. 

FredBarclayFred Barclay is a local artist from Gadsden, Alabama. His exhibition is a collection of abstract and vibrant paintings utilizing three-dimensional elements which he calls “expressions of perfections and imperfections of creativity.” At a very early age Barclay began creating art taking inspiration from Pablo Picasso and his own father, Fred Barclay Sr. 

These shows will be on display until December 30, and the museum is opened to the public Tuesday- Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with new hours on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

The reception will be held on December 3 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. with light refreshments provided.
