Come Home to the Visual Arts in West Alabama!

Art Roundup from the UA Dept. of Art and Art History: today is Wednesday, October 23, 2019. Stretch your “Art Homecoming” out longer: First Friday and Art Night (in that order this month) are this week and next week! Thanks to William Paul Thomas for our featured image. Send us your visual arts events — we want to know what you’re up to. This list is updated throughout the week on this page.

Look for this e-list each week, a service of the UA Department of Art and Art History. We hope to provide a more or less comprehensive list of exhibits and visual arts events in West Alabama (*and sometimes a wider net, esp. if West Alabama folks are showing), with hyperlinks. Follow the links to get more information. To send your exhibition info, unsubscribe to this email, or to change or add an email address, please email: Your comments and suggestions are welcome.

Thank you for supporting ALL of the arts all over West Alabama!
