Southern Roots Juried Show Canceled
The Southern Roots Juried Show at the Birmingham Public Library Gallery scheduled for April 5 - May 14 has been canceled. The Alabama Illustrated exhibit will continue in the Birmingham Public Library Gallery until May 14.
In the 19th century many Americans received news and learned about the world beyond their home towns by reading illustrated newspapers. Prior to the 1890s, the technology did not exist to economically publish photographs in newspapers, so some publishers employed artists to draw and engrave images. From the 1850s to the 1890s, more than 250 engraved images of Alabama were published in national and international papers. This exhibition contains 30 of those engravings showing Alabama at work, at play, and at war.
