Tom Rankin: Sacred Landscapes of the South April 15 - June 25
Alice & William Jenkins Gallery For more than 25 years, Tom Rankin has photographed rural churches and sacred spaces in the South. He returns again and again to the same places, documenting the effects of time and weather in powerful black-and-white film-based photographs captured with his 8 x 10 large-format camera. Crealdé presents a two-venue exhibition of photographs by Rankin, former director for the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.
The Florida Painters Return to Crealdé
April 8 - July 30
Showalter Hughes Community Gallery The Florida Painters began with a Crealdé School of Art plein air workshop in 2008 held by artist and mentor Tom Sadler. This exhibition spotlights a group of painters whose skill, creativity and diversity have grown tremendously. While their focus has continued to be painting the landscape en plein air, their subjects have expanded to include urban scenes, still lifes and the human figure.
THANK YOU to the 243 generous contributors who contributed $41,680 to Crealdé’s portion of the 2016 United Arts Collaborative Campaign for the Arts. The Crealdé Board of Directors and Administrative Team worked hard over the last three months to meet and surpass our organization’s campaign goal of $40,000 by May 2nd. As a representation of Crealdé’s diverse support base, we received gifts ranging from $25 to $100 to $6,000. United Arts will match the funds raised by another 15 percent contribution. Thank you to all our students, members, instructors, staff and Board members who have made this possible!
