The Johnson Center for the Arts will welcome two Alabama-born artists as exhibitors on Monday, February 21 and will host an artist reception on Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
JCA Director Brenda Campbell said the arts center was excited and honored to present Mark Dauber, Birmingham, and Madison Faile, Selma, at the arts centre.
“Mark and Madison are outstanding and highly respected artists,” said Campbell. “Their exhibition ‘Art and Pictures’ brings together the amazing talents of both in an outstanding artistic exhibition.”
Dauber is a fine art photographer who has had numerous exhibitions across the United States and is included in various private and institutional collections. He has led his own workshops in the US, Ireland and Guatemala and produced the architectural photography for the highly acclaimed Palladio in Alabama exhibition and catalogue.
“Mark was recently recognized as Artist of the Year by the Montgomery Business Committee,” said Campbell. “He is the first photographer to receive this award.”
Faile graduated from Troy University and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in drawing and painting.
He has curated and participated in many exhibitions and was the first alumni to be offered a solo exhibition.
“Madison has exhibited in galleries all over the South,” Campbell said. “He mainly paints from fantasy and found photographs. His work confronts the viewer with the bizarre and the very real.”
Everyone is invited to view “Arts and Images” during the regular JCA hours Monday to Friday from 10am to 5pm and to meet the artists at the reception in their honor on Thursday 24 February from 6am to 7.30am .
