Opening Night is almost here!
The former Carneal Auto Service is now Carneal Arts Revive located in a 1920's structure by the Alabama River. ArtsRevive will open its headquarters AND its annual Spring Juried Art Exhibition March 18 with a members-only reception. (Note to non-members: You can join at the door and become a member!)
Lots of work has gone into this building since the arts organization purchased it in 2008. Part of the roof had caved in, and contractors were hired to remove asbestos and lead paint. Many things automotive were hauled out of the interior, and a security fence was installed along the riverbank.
On Opening Night, there will be art from Alabama artists and refreshments.
In the future, there will be more art events, workshops, rental space, catering kitchen, a courtyard and an art wall of automotive sculptures along the wrought-iron fence.
If you miss Opening Night, the art show will be open March 19 and 20 in conjunction with Pilgrimage Weekend.
