Atmospheres, an exhibition of new paintings by Randy Brienen, captures, in the artist’s words, “impressions of the ever-changing sky around us as it relates to color, form, and in some cases, reflective interaction with various land and water vistas.” The exhibition is on view now through December 19, open to the public by reservation at www.gadsdenarts.org.

Brienen is a mainly self-taught painter who takes inspiration for his acrylic and oil paintings from the idyllic landscapes surrounding his home in North Florida, and his work is frequently exhibited throughout our region. Visitors will have opportunities to talk with Mr. Brienen about his work online and at the museum. 

On Thursday November 19, at 1pm, you can join an Art Talk Live! Zoom presentation with Randy Brienen. The artist will talk about his current exhibition and series, Atmospheres, offer a virtual tour of his studio, and answer questions moderated by Gadsden Arts staff. Information and registration are found at www.gadsdenarts.org.

On Saturday, November 21, 2020, during the 1pm and 3pm exhibition visitor time slots, Mr. Brienen will be on hand to meet and talk with patrons in person. Reservations are limited to 20 people per time slot, face coverings required, and can be made at www.gadsdenarts.org or by calling 850-627-5021.
