Birmingham-Southern College to host inaugural alumni art exhibit

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Birmingham-Southern is hosting its first-ever BSC Visual Arts Open: An Alumni Art Exhibition June 12-July 3. The exhibit will feature alumni who are artists by vocation and by avocation and will include works from BSC alumni who craft, paint, carve, weld, weave, or throw. The exhibit will be on display at the college's Durbin Gallery, Kennedy Art Center/Azar Art Studios and will be open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Local artist and alumnus Don Stewart, who is currently chairman of the BSC Fine Arts Society's Visual Arts Committee and works as a graphic artist, writer, and creative consultant through his company DS Art located in Homewood, will be included among the alumni exhibitors.

“Regardless of what we studied on the Hilltop, we all learned the value of creative expression. This exhibit gives us an opportunity to celebrate creativity, no matter what it says on your degree,” said Stewart.

The inaugural exhibit, sponsored by the BSC Fine Arts Society and intended to celebrate the art in a liberal arts education, will open with a public reception June 12 in the gallery from 6-8 p.m. Admission is free.
