Gadsden Museum of Art announces September 2022 exhibits

Wagner - When the Cows Come Home

On Friday, Sept. 2, the Gadsden Museum of Art will host an opening reception for the following exhibits: Cynthia Wagner’s Finding A Way Home on the first-floor Main Gallery and Phoebe Burns’ The Angry Black Women/ A Black Hole In A White Space exhibited in the Courtyard Gallery, also located on the museum’s first floor.

Cynthia Wagner’s Finding A Way Home exhibition is a collection of mixed media pieces taken from different bodies of works. 

Wagner considers herself a visual narrator telling stories through several artistic mediums.  She uses a combination of paint, photography, digital collage, found objects and a variety of other mixed materials. 

Her works explore the similarities in the way that both the human brain and computer technology create fictional worlds. 

Phoebe Burns’ The Angry Black Women/ A Black Hole In A White Space is an exhibition composed of two separate bodies of work. 

Burns - John Lewis Voting Rights Act

The Angry Black Woman is a mixed media exhibit that explores the side of the black female experience that is hardly ever told in depth. Black women are more than just an angry, loud stereotype. They feel joy, excitement, fear, frustration and yes, anger.   

In every art piece, there is a bridge between the past and the present because history constantly repeats itself. The trauma that the black woman’s ancestor experienced has morphed itself into a new form but old history of oppression.  

A Black Hole in a White Space is a photo series named after modern-day laws that are affecting black people to this day and asks the question, “What is it like being Black in America?”  

Artwork from Sarah Cusimano Miles and Joi West will be on display, along with Mustard Seed Tees presenting an artist demonstration in front of the museum. 

The opening reception will take place during Downtown Gadsden’s First Friday Celebration from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. 

All exhibits will be on display Tuesdays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. until Sept. 23.
