THE MOBILE DELTA: Glass & Light

Mobile

Rene Culler’s site-specific work is a mural in glass that celebrates the species-rich Delta and its atmospheric qualities.

As the grasses, almost transparent, catch the light, Culler’s drawings and painting in glass suggest the landscape that southern Alabama holds so dear. The composition is a wall of natural light utilized as a glass canvas for drawing, painting and printing with vitreous enamels. Slumped dimensional panels and blown glass abstractly portray the location’s dimensionality.

PANEL DISCUSSION: ART VS. CRAFT

Mobile

Unbeknownst to many, there is heated ongoing discussion of how we define ‘fine art’, craft and even design, hailing from the dawn of making.

Is there a higher aim to decoration? Are ‘high’ and ‘low’ art distinctions even still relevant? Hear what local artists and academics think as they share works of art that exemplify or defy classification.
