Alabama Center for the Arts to Host Exhibit and Lecture by Sara Good


April 1, 2014

The Alabama Center for the Arts will host a lecture and exhibit by Memphis artist Sara Good. The exhibit, entitled Seed to Soil to Sediment, will open April 14 at the Center which is located at 133 2nd Avenue in Decatur. The exhibit will run through June 26. A lecture by the artist will be held at 5:30 p.m. on the evening of the 26th.

Good is an installation artist working within the realm of the organic material. The environments she designs are reminiscent of a space somewhere between the arena of landscape as it occurs in the natural world, and the cultivated, domestic landscape of a garden

Seed to Soil to Sediment presents a series of soil-related works created over a broad period, and inspired by the artist’s range of sources, ideas and experiences. The artist gathers ideas from human narratives, the visual power of found materials, numerous botanical sources, and her own gardening experiences.

“My connection to the earth has always felt very deep and direct,” states Good. “It is my center. It has shaped my sensibility as a sculptor.”

The lecture is sponsored by Athens State University’s Livingston Concert Lecture Series. Both the exhibit and the lecture are free and open to the public.

The Alabama Center for the Arts is a collaborative project between Athens State University and Calhoun Community College. The Center opened in 2012 and combines the two institution’s art programs. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 8:00 am to 8:30 pm, and Friday from 8:00 to noon.
