Alabama Then & Now

A Traveling Bicentennial Exhibition

The Auburn Arts Association invites you to join the celebration of Alabama’s Bicentennial with the “Alabama, Then and Now” collection that is currently on view at the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center. This exhibition showcases 30 original paintings by 16 artists in honor of Alabama’s Bicentennial. All paintings were created by members of the Alabama Plein Air Artists (APAA) who gather monthly around the state to paint Alabama “en plein air” (in the open air).

The paintings depict landmarks and regions of Alabama where these artists live or have traveled and painted from life. Subjects include bridges, barns, mills, architecture, sports, popular culture and the natural beauty of Alabama.

Beginning in October 2018, this juried exhibition has traveled through Hoover, Fort Payne, Athens, Tuscaloosa, Pike Road and the state capitol of Montgomery. After the show in Auburn, it will travel to Mobile and Hamilton, ending in Huntsville in November.

This exhibition is officially endorsed by the Alabama Bicentennial Commission. Many paintings in this exhibit will be for sale. Entry is free and open to the public!
