FLORENCE-The Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts is pleased to present Mostly Blues, an annual soulful exhibition of paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures and mixed media works by regional artists that visually interpret and pay homage to the power of music.  While invited artists from Colbert, Franklin, and Lauderdale counties have diverse interpretations—whether depicting a scene from the W.C. Handy Music Festival or literally painting in ‘blues’—all works have a common musical theme that celebrate this area’s ties to the music world.  A reception is planned for Sun., July 21, 1-4 p.m., with an awards presentation to be held at 1:30 p.m.

The Mostly Blues exhibit was started in 1994 to honor Florence native W.C. Handy, “Father of the Blues”.  Since then, the music-themed display has become a popular summer highlight!  The KDAC again looks forward to this opportunity to exhibit the soulful collection of art by well-known and established area artists—as well as new, up-and-coming artists.  This visual homage to the power of music will open on July 14 and remain on display through August 29, 2024.

The Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts is free and open to the public Monday – Friday from 9-4 and on Sundays from 1-4. The art center is located at 217 E. Tuscaloosa St. Florence, AL.  For more information visit or call (256) 760-6379.
