The Reece Museum will be showing 14 of John Steele's paintings. Steele, born 1929 in Birmingham, Alabama, was a painter and printmaker. He once said of his work, "Most of my works are reflections on the nature of my experiences as a Southerner, an American, and as a stranger in a strange land."More
The DeVault Tavern, a U.S. National Register of Historic Places listing, is located approximately five miles west of Jonesborough in the community of Leesburg. Frederick DeVault (spelled Davault at that time) built the two-story brick tavern in 1819-1821. Twenty of large, framed photographs by Brooklyn-based artist Paul Kennedy, will serve as the exhibition’s “establishing shots,” introducing the house and landscape as theatrical spaces replete with evidence. Specially selected archival material from the Tavern collection will be on display, along with research material drawn from other sources, such as census forms, photos, transcribed letters and maps. The installation will also include five pieces of museum-quality antique furniture that originally belonged in the Tavern.More
