2015 Exhibitions

ALICE
& WILLIAMS JENKINS GALLERY

November 7, 2014 to January 31, 2015
Visionary Bill Jenkins: Crealdé Founder, Artist and Philanthropist — Jenkins Gallery and Heritage Center.

In celebration of Crealdé’s 40th anniversary, we remember late founder William Sterling Jenkins (1909-1996) in a two-gallery presentation. Trained as an artist in Europe and Mexico in the 1930s, he produced a body of landscape and portrait paintings influenced by the places he traveled to as a young man, and the changing cultural landscape of his native American South.

 

February 6 – May 23
From the Bronx to Florida: The Life Sculptures of Rigoberto Torres — Jenkins Gallery and Heritage Center.

Puerto Rican-born sculptor Rigoberto Torres worked in New York City for two decades before moving to Kissimmee, where he currently lives and works. Seen and collected throughout the world, Torres’ colorful life-size plaster and fiberglass figurative sculptures are rooted in a celebration of daily life in the South Bronx neighborhood where he grew up. His work, described as “humanistic naturalism,” provides sensitive studies of real people — family, friends, neighborhood heroes and strangers he has met during public castings. The two-gallery exhibition begins with a reception 7-8:30 p.m. Friday, February 6, in the Jenkins Gallery and continues with reception featuring Latin jazz 8:30-10 p.m. at Hannibal Square Heritage Center.

 

June 5 – August 15
The 40th Anniversary Homecoming Exhibition

Crealdé-inspired artists, now living across the U.S., share selections of their current work and the stories of how their artistic careers were influenced through their educational experience at the school. This exhibition is curated by Barbara Tiffany, Director of Painting & Drawing. The opening on Friday, June 5, coincides with the Annual Membership Meeting, from 7-7:30 p.m., followed by a reception until 9:30 p.m.

The exhibition is a program of Exhibits USA and the National Endowment for the Arts. This two-venue exhibition will also feature a display of locally created quilts, curated by folklorist and author Dr. Kristin Congdon. The reception is 7-8:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 11, at the Jenkins Gallery on the main campus, followed by a continued reception with live music 8:30-10 p.m. at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center.
