Look for this e-list each week, a service of the UA Department of Art and Art History.

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: rachel.dobson@ua.edu. Your comments and suggestions are welcome.

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