The Sarah Moody Gallery of Art proudly presents Echoes along the Syrian Border: Family Archeology and the Sound of Distant Gunfire: Works by James Emmette Neel, January 12 – February 17, 2017.
Artist Jim Neel presents two bodies of art work created in various media including photography, works on paper and sculpture in this exhibition. Suriya was produced following Neel’s time spent in Syria and Les Enfant de la Terre was created in response to experience he had in El Salvador and Central America.
Alabama native Jim Neel received an MFA from The University of Alabama’s Department of Art and Art History in 1973. He has marshaled his extensive experiences as photojournalist, administrator, teacher, international traveler, scholar and artist to considerable acclaim. Neel recently completed his second residency at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and produced a second body of figurative sculptural porcelain works that he will exhibit this year at the Huntsville Museum of Art. He holds an academic appointment as Professor of Art at Birmingham-Southern College. He has been the recipient of the Southeastern College Art Conference Artist’s Fellowship and the Alabama State Council on the Arts Fellowship. His work has been featured in more than thirty newspapers and journals. Exhibitions of his artwork have been produced for many prominent regional museums and academic gallery programs. — William T.
