University of Montevallo art faculty at SCAC

The Shelby County Arts Council will present an exhibition May 3-31, at the SCAC Gallery at 104 Mildred St. in Columbiana. The exhibition, S2, will feature the works of University of Montevallo faculty members Scott Stephens and Scott Meyer. Both are professors of art at UM, and Stephens is the chair of the department of art.

The event will open with a reception Thursday evening, May 3, from 6 until 7:30. Gallery hours are Monday–Thursday, 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. Call the gallery at 205-669-0044 for evening hours and Saturdays. Both the reception and the exhibit are free and open to the public.

Stephens will be exhibiting his large-scale works on paper consisting of cyanotypes, collagraphs and photo-lithographs. The work features imagery drawn from the natural world including pieces taken from the University of Montevallo’s Ebenezer Swamp Ecological Preserve. This work was done in collaboration with Canadian artist Judy Major-Girardin during her artist’s residency at the University of Montevallo in 2009.

Meyer will be showing small-scale ceramic pieces that were fired in UM’s anagama kiln. This kiln was constructed by Meyer and his students in 2002, and artists come from far and wide to have their works fired in its 2,400° heat.
