2021 Statewide High School Juried Art Exhibit and Awards Reception

Sunday, April 25th 2pm-4pm

The closing reception and awards ceremony is free and open to the public.

Gallery hours: Monday-Thursday 10am-5pm and during Black Box Theater Events.

The Shelby County Arts Council, in partnership with the University of Alabama at Birmingham Department of Art and Art History and the University of Montevallo Department of Art, presents the 2021 Statewide Student Juried Art Exhibition. This show features the work of high school students from across the state of Alabama. Out of over 275 pieces entered into this show, only about 65 were accepted into the gallery exhibit. Judges Richard Gere (UAB) and Lee Somers (University of Montevallo) took on the difficult task of judging the exhibit. The first round of judging takes place by digitally reviewing the submissions. Once they make their selections students will then deliver the artwork to the EBSCO Fine Arts Gallery and Gere and Somers will make their finally selections for the prizes of Best in Show and the best in each category. Entry categories include painting, mixed media, photography, 3D design, and drawing.

Please join us in celebrating these hardworking young artists at the gallery closing reception and awards ceremony on Sunday, April 25th from 2pm-4pm. Everyone is welcome to attend the gallery reception.

Don’t forget to wear a mask and practice social distancing!

Winners do not need to be present to accept awards. Students will also be able to take their work home at the end of the reception.

Paul Thorn has created an innovative and impressive career, pleasing crowds with his muscular brand of roots music – bluesy, rocking and thoroughly Southern American, yet also speaking universal truths. Among those who value originality, inspiration, eccentricity and character – as well as talent that hovers somewhere on the outskirts of genius, the story of Paul Thorn is already familiar. Born in Tupelo, Mississippi, raised among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) who nurtured the young Elvis generations before, Paul Thorn has rambled down back roads and jumped out of airplanes, worked for years in a furniture factory, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television, performed on stages with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine among many others, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet fully accessible music of our time. He’s also appeared on major television shows, received numerous National Public Radio features and charted multiple times on the Billboard Top 100 and Americana Radio Charts.

 Paul recently released a critically acclaimed gospel-flavored record, Don’t Let the Devil Ride, which features special guests the Blind Boys of Alabama, The McCrary Sisters, Bonnie Bishop and the Preservation Hall Horns. This is Paul going back to his roots!

Tim Montana has tapped a new vein of Southern Rock. Sometimes best known for his collaborations with ZZ Top’s legendary Billy F. Gibbons with whom Montana has formed his longest and most prosperous relationship. The pair has written, recorded and performed together countless times, co-writing songs like “Weed and Whiskey,” “Rust and Red” and “Fifty Fifty.” In 2013, the hirsute rockers penned “This Beard Came Here to Party,” which became the theme song of the Boston Red Sox as they fought to a World Series championship, and later Music City’s NHL franchise the Nashville Predators. “Raised in the wilds near Butte, Montana, Tim Montana (yes, it’s his real name), entered the world as an off-the-grid thrill-seeker. He and his buddies would take to the nearby mountains to fish, hunt and raise hell as an escape from their rustic home lives — Montana grew up without electricity. Soon, however, he sought out a different high: the kind that only comes from performing live music. Eager to perfect the guitar playing he began when he was just 6 years old, he moved to Los Angeles to put his time in studying his craft. Eventually, he ended up in Nashville, where he formed his band the Shrednecks and established himself as a thrilling live performer. He’s a gregarious personality and struck up friendships with such diverse figures as Kid Rock and the Navy SEAL who led the raid to take down Osama bin Laden, Rob O’Neill. In Kid Rock, Montana found a kindred rebel spirit and began one of his most prolific creative periods, opening for the rap-rock icon and co-writing two charting singles for Rock’s Sweet Southern Sugar album: the Top 10 country hit “Tennessee Mountain Top” and the Number 16 rock anthem “Greatest Show on Earth.” “We have a lot in common,” he says of his relationship with Rock. “The way we write songs is very similar, our performance style is full throttle and we instantly hit it off.” Come see Tim and the band in the up close and personal SCAC Black Box Theater on 6-4-21 at 7:30 pm.
