The Alabama Center for the Arts is pleased to announce the opening of “Celebrating the Life, Art, and Spirit of Guy McClure, Jr.,” featuring 58 paintings by Guy McClure, Jr. from private collectors.

Celebrating the Life, Art, and Spirit of Guy McClure, Jr.

Opening Tuesday, May 10 in the Center’s Walking Gallery, this exhibit honors the life and memory of beloved local artist, Guy McClure, Jr. The collection is a retrospective of his artwork gathered from private collectors and will remain open until Friday, July 8. A reception is scheduled at the ACA on Thursday, May 19 at 5:30 pm.

Guy Young McClure, Jr. was a local artist, friend to many, and avid supporter of the Alabama Center for the Arts. A true “creative” at heart, Guy used art as a form of expression and enjoyed creating special pieces for friends and family as gifts. Guy previously worked at Brown University, Athens State University, and the University of North Alabama and made lasting impressions on all he met. Sadly, he passed away on Saturday, November 7, 2020.

The Alabama Center for the Arts would like to thank Guy’s friends and family for lending their artwork to be featured in this special tribute.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. The Alabama Center for the Arts is open Monday – Thursday from 8:00 am – 8:00 pm and on Friday from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm.
