Join us today, 5–6 p.m. in the Grand Gallery for a hypertufa demonstration by Montgomery-based visual artist, author and Auburn alumnus Greg Brown.
Hypertufa—ideal for creating lightweight and durable art—features prominently in Brown’s eclectic series of decorative masks currently on display in “Creative Cadences: Works of Roger and Greg Brown,” which includes a diverse collection of paintings, prints and sculptures by Greg and his brother, Roger. Demonstration attendees are encouraged to explore the exhibition, on view through Nov. 3 in the Bill L. Harbert Gallery and Gallery C as part of the museum’s ongoing celebration of the Alabama bicentennial. The hypertufa demonstration and the exhibition are both free and open to the public. #GregBrown #hypertufa #JCSM ... See MoreSee Less
