46th Annual Kentuck Festival of the Arts

The Kentuck Festival nurtures artistic expression by providing an opportunity for undiscovered and established artists to share and sell their work, to educate the public about the creative efforts of artists, perpetuate traditional craft and folk art, and to add to the cultural climate and quality of life in the community, state, and region.
 
Throughout the years many "undiscovered" artists who are now in textbooks, galleries, and museums have exhibited at Kentuck. 
 
To this end, Kentuck strives to showcase work of exceptional quality and creativity by artists in a variety of areas: contemporary art and sculpture, contemporary craft, traditional/heritage craft, and folk/self-taught artists.

The Majestic • Juvenile Court Center Exhibition

Sydney Gruber will present a gathering of her art work at the Tuscaloosa County Juvenile Court Lobby beginning July 10, 2017, and running through mid-September. 

The show is titled "The Majestic" and will feature Gruber’s vibrant abstracts with her signature style and a medley of transcending imagery paintings within her mixed media collection. 

Gruber earned her BA from the University of Alabama in 2014 with a double major in Psychology and English. She currently works as an Artist in Residence at Kentuck Art Center. After receiving some local attention for her "Alchemy Art" home decor collection, Gruber began meeting with clients for personalized commission work—commonly revitalizing furniture into sublime works of functional art. As an artist who does not limit herself to one medium, her collection also includes locally poured, hand-painted beeswax candles, chessboards, mirror art, and more! More about the Artist HERE:www.sydneygruber.com


Tuscaloosa County Juvenile Court Lobby is located at 6001 12th Avenue East, Tuscaloosa. Kentuck artist, Lorrie Lane, curates art exhibitions in the lobby that change every three months.
