|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until January 18, 2022

The Sarah Moody Gallery of Art is proud to present True Likeness, an exhibition of nearly 70 portraits, which will run November 4 – December 22, 2021, and January 4 – 18, 2022. Visitors are not required but may wear face coverings inside the gallery.

Check out installation views of the exhibition here.

The portraits in True Likeness represent the complexity of selfhood and are a celebration of human experience, both at the individual level and as an expression of cultural identities. The exhibition is curated by Tom Stanley and Lia Newman. “The artists in True Likeness draw attention to manufactured and real notions that different communities hold about one another,” Stanley said. “They remind us that the human image is a powerful indicator of reality, wishful thinking, memory, and perception.”

The Sarah Moody Gallery of Art is an essential part of the education and development of UA students and our community. We invite you to visit the gallery for a class, an opportunity to look at art, or just a quiet, meditative respite from the outside world. Visitors must wear face coverings inside the gallery. Have questions or need assistance? Call (205) 348-1891.

Additional support comes from the Farley Moody Galbraith Endowed Exhibition Fund. Admission to the gallery is free. Hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m. when school is in session.
