Current Exhibitions

Artist and educator Carlton Nell lives and works in Opelika, Alabama. His paintings and drawings have been exhibited in museums and galleries across the country, and his work is found in many public and private collections. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Auburn University and his Master of Fine Arts from Georgia State University. He is currently a Professor of Art at Auburn University.

Barbara Hirschowitz studied painting under Alabama artists and educators, Edith Frohock and Alvin Sella. Under Frohock’s guidance, Hirschowitz learned to stretch her thinking and skills. She utilizes canvas and paper to visualize her work from a history of living moments. With confident and colorful layers, she describes hybrid spaces and unknown places – rendered in a familiar manner – often prompting the viewer to question if they may recognize it from their own past. The element of space has always been present in her work, and her current projects evoke simplicity and reduction.

The Fine Arts Department and HLP Kids collaborated to produce this Black History Month exhibition and art class. On February 4th, the Children’s Department led an art class, open to children ages 7-12, where students completed an art project based on the artwork of African-American painter, educator and Expressionist, Alma Thomas. The work of the students will be on display in the George P. Farmer Gallery through April. When the exhibition concludes each student will receive their framed artwork provided by the Hoover Public Library.
