(TUSCALOOSA, Ala.) The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa will host an exhibit of works in clay and paintings by Robin Nance Metz Nov. 6-Dec. 11, 2020 in The Arts Council Gallery at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center. Titled “A Life in Color,” the exhibit will open with a reception on Nov. 6 from 5-8 p.m. during the First Friday Art Walk in Downtown Tuscaloosa.

Artist Robin Nance Metz studied Graphic Design and Illustration at the University of Montevallo and Auburn University and was then employed in those fields from 1980-2000. Her introduction to clay in the past six years gave her the chance to try a new medium in her creative journey. The platter is the closest thing to an actual canvas and was the easiest for the artist to apply what she already knew to another medium. Metz also  holds grief centered clay hand building workshops in her studio, and she also enjoys hand building and carving.

Metz’s accolades include solo exhibits of her paintings at the Lyda Rose Gallery in Homewood, Ala., Homewood Library’s Ellenburg Gallery, Shorty Cate’s gallery in Fairhope, Ala., and The Cannery in Daphne, Ala. Her works in clay have been displayed at Monte Sano outdoor show, Bluff Park outdoor show, Johnson Center for the Arts in Troy, Ala., Aldridge Gardens in Hoover, Ala., Bluff Park outdoor show, Artists Incorporated Gallery in Vestavia Hills, Ala., The Grand Bohemian Gallery in Mountain Brook, Ala., Alabama Clay Conference Participants Show, and Kentuck 2019. 

Current Hours at The Arts Council Gallery at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center are weekdays 1 p.m.- 3 p.m.
