Our Shared Heritage: Alabama Artists from the Collection18 50 – 1940
Through March 24, 2019
Chan Gallery

“Alabama, they say, is like one big front porch where folks gather on summer nights to tell tales and talk family.”

— Kathryn Tucker Windham

During the run of Our Shared Heritage, the Chan Gallery will become a microcosm of Alabama as seen through the eyes of artists past and present who have captured the people, places and traditions of our state. From the Gulf Coast of the south, through the Black Belt of mid-state, to the red clay hills of the north, a diverse culture emerges. However, viewers will quickly sense the many connections between the land, the people, and everyday life here in the Heart of Dixie.

As a component of the statewide celebration of Alabama’s 200 Bicentennial Celebration in 2019, Our Shared Heritage will highlight important works from the Museum’s collection by artists with strong Alabama ties. Oil paintings, watercolors, drawings, prints, photographs, and other media by over 50 of the State’s best artists from the 19th century to the present will be displayed. Old favorites, along with rarely shown works will include early portraits by William Frye, Nicola Marschall, William Halsey, and Adrian Thompson; mid-20th century paintings, photographs and works on paper by Anne Wilson Goldthwaite, William Christenberry, Kathryn Tucker Windham, and Richard Zoellner; and contemporary works in varied media by Gary Chapman, Evan Wilson, Clifton Pearson, David Parrish, and many others.

Our Shared Heritage will be displayed in two parts, the first focusing on historical works in the collection, and the second featuring works by artists of the present day. A 60-page, fully illustrated catalogue will be published in April to provide a permanent record of the Museum’s collection of Alabama art. Underwritten by a generous grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts, the catalogue will be available for sale in the Museum Store, and will also be distributed to museums, libraries and other educational institutions throughout Alabama to promote this important resource within the Huntsville Museum of Art’s permanent collection.
