Event Details

The Gadsden Arts Center & Museum is pleased to present its first major of 2021, America the Beautiful: the Monumental Landscapes of Clyde Butcher, on view January 15 – April 3 in all three of the museum’s first floor galleries. Visit the exhibition to travel through the most pristine landscapes in the United States through Butcher’s monumental photographs, from the Redwood forests of California to the Everglades swamps of Florida.

Clyde Butcher is a nationally acclaimed landscape photographer whose work documents pristine and untarnished lands across the United States. Deeply committed to his artistic process, Butcher carries large-format camera gear that can weigh up to 120 pounds as he crosses difficult terrain and stands in chest-deep water for hours. Aware of wildlife that make these territories home, Butcher goes above and beyond to deliver the perfect photograph. Butcher promotes environmental conservation through his work, and throughout his career has completed six Public Broadcasting programs on Florida’s environment, three of them award winning documentaries. This exhibition is brought to you by Trulieve, presented by Florida State University College of Medicine and May Nursery, and sponsored by Russell Rainey DMD, and Talquin Electric.

Three special online presentations will accompany America the Beautiful. On Wednesday February 10, scholar Victoria Machado will present Sacred Waters, a talk about efforts to restore Florida’s waterways. On February 25, Steven Noll, PhD, will share Florida Water Stories, talking about Florida’s long and difficult relationship with water. On March 11 at 1pm, join the artist, Clyde Butcher, for an online question and answer conversation. Register for these online events, sponsored in part by Florida Humanities, at www.gadsdenarts.org.

Another new, exciting offering is the Dean Gioia: Haunted exhibition, opening in the Munroe Family Community Gallery. This exhibition presents some of Dean Gioia’s most recent work, capturing light and how it plays over the nooks and crannies of everyday life, which results in sumptuous paintings filled with an ethereal presence. During your visit, you will also enjoy the first Gadsden Arts Artists Guild exhibition of the year, presenting quality work by many of the groups sixty members, and you can shop fine art and craft by ninety artists in the Fletcher Museum Shop.
