(Tuscaloosa, Ala.) The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa will host an exhibit of work by the Tuscaloosa and University Painters (TAUP) at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center during March. The exhibit, titled "Latitudes and Longitudes," will open with a reception on March 6, 2015 from 5 – 8 p.m. during First Friday and will conclude on March 30.

The exhibit will consist of paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolor. Considered TAUP’s official annual group show, the organization also shows work at other venues. Artists represented in the exhibit will be Chris Metzger, Karen Jacobs, Diana Francko, Emily Mitchell, Anne Stickney, Lorie Layden, Jack Kidd, Jane Evers, Sandra Ray, Pamela Copeland, Lisa Godwin, Sharon Long, Sydney Sparks, Jane Evers and Deborah Hughes.

TAUP has met for over 25 years on Thursday mornings to paint on location, primarily in the Plein Aire tradition, but will utilize a live model or set up still lifes in natural light during inclement weather. Concurrently the work of TAUP members is on display at The University Medical Center as a part of “The Wellness Walls for Art” initiative.

The Arts Council Gallery hours are 9 – noon and 1 - 4 p.m. on weekdays and noon – 8 p.m. on First Fridays.

The Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center is located at 620 Greensboro Avenue in Downtown Tuscaloosa.
