The 15th annual ArtsRevive Art Show has grown significantly over the past several years in size and popularity, and most importantly, in the quality of the submissions. The 2017 Alabama Artists: Roots and Wings is a reflection of that growth. Entry is open to artists who are from Alabama although they may now live and work elsewhere (Wings) as well as those artists who currently live in Alabama (Roots).


Host Charlie “TinMan” Lucas chats with guests

The ArtsRevive show has built a reputation for its varied sampling of Alabama talent at its finest. The show will be held in the Charlie “TinMan” Lucas Gallery at 9 Lauderdale Street in the heart of historic downtown Selma.


The jurist for this show is Jamie Adams, an Alabama based sculptor and printmaker whose artistic process derives from a childhood spent in a profoundly religious family in the Deep South. Now, spirituality continues to be a prominent theme in his work. His art is characterized by vibrant colors, allusions to art history and pop culture, and an insistent uses of new technologies in his work. Adams’ work has received many awards, including awards at the Edinboro Print National, Ceramics Biennial in Manchester, NH and at the Gulf States Rising Exhibition at the George Ohr Museum. He has exhibited his artwork in many group and solo exhibitions, from Missouri to Washington. Adams currently serves as Division Chair of Fine Arts at Judson College in Marion.


The Opening Reception for Members Only will be on Saturday, April 1, from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Memberships will be available at the door!


The show will be open to the public on Fridays & Saturdays, from April 7-29 from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm. Call 334-412-8052 or email for group appointments.  For more info, click here.
