Pensacola Museum of Art to host ‘Dwellings’
The Pensacola Museum of Art presents “Dwellings,” on view today through June 8. The museum will host an opening reception and artist talk on May 4 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. A second artist talk will be held June 2 from noon to 1 p.m., during the museum’s open house.
The exhibition, primarily documented in metalpoint, depicts the history and ruins of four civilizations. The histories on display illustrate the incomplete story of the cliff, forest, sea and sky dwellers. These drawings employ silverpoint, copperpoint, brasspoint, nicklepoint and goldpoint to visually chronicle four different time periods for each civilization.
Nicholas Croghan, director of The Art Gallery, known as TAG, created the art for the exhibition. Croghan teaches museum studies, gallery practices and studio art classes. Croghan is a mixed media artist who uses traditional and non-traditional materials to create 2-D and 3-D art objects. He received a bachelor’s of fine arts degree from Murray State University, a master’s degree in art from University of Louisville and a master’s in fine art degree from Colorado State University.
Located at 407 S. Jefferson St. in historic downtown Pensacola, the Pensacola Museum of Art is open Tuesday through Thursday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Sunday from noon until 4 p.m.
