Artist Talk with David Sandlin | 5:00 p.m.
Public Opening | 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Please join us for a free artist talk with David Sandlin followed by the opening reception for David Sandlin: 76 Manifestations of American Destiny. Free and open to the public.

Born in Belfast in 1956, David Sandlin transitioned from the volatile and violent political climate of Northern Ireland of the late 1960s to the American South when his family relocated to Alabama in 1972. Sandlin’s work pulls from the rich history of each setting to create narrative-driven imagery exploring the disparity of both cultural landscapes as well as their parallels. Sandlin’s elaborate books, drawings and paintings present semi-autobiographical tales of morality, redemption, and American exceptionalism. This exhibition will feature two major series of works by Sandlin: “A Sinner’s Progress: A Modern Moral Journey” and “76 Manifestations of American Destiny.”

David Sandlin’s 76 Manifestations of American Destiny series was created with the generous support of the Simon Guggenheim Foundation.
