The Red Clay Survey “takes the pulse” of contemporary Southern art through a selection of works in all styles and media determined by a nationally recognized juror. The works in The Red Clay Survey typically range in style from the traditional to the avant-garde and encompass painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, fine craft, photography and mixed media works. These works reflect the multifaceted state of today’s art. 80 works were selected by juror Gerry Bergstein from more than 1500 entries from artists across an 11-state region.
Selected for the exhibition is a piece from my current collaborative GUSDUGGER project with Cary Norton. Through spring of 2017 Cary and I have driven across North Central Alabama, photographing historic sites with the wet-plate collodion tintype process.
