Upcoming Exhibitions

The World According to Federico Uribe

June 2 – August 26, 2018

Columbia-born, Miami-based artist Federico Uribe creates magical creatures and playful installations from everyday objects. Finding beauty in simple materials such as books, colored pencils, wood fragments, and shoes and transforming them into animals and natural environments, Uribe creates an immersive and whimsical landscape. These new and innovative forms are simultaneously entrenched in sculptural and painting traditions while breaking free of their constraints. Uribe believes that “every artwork has a story, character and feelings all connected to memories and sensations that eco into our life.” For the Woodson Art Museum, Uribe will create a large-scale site-specific walk-in environment.

Birds in Art 2018

The 43rd annual exhibition celebrates avian marvels through new interpretations – in an array of mediums, including oil, watercolor, the graphic arts, bronze, stone, and others – created within the last three years.
