Visiting artist Crowell A. Pate IV, an Alabama native, invites viewers to access the hidden depths of the subconscious with his Gibbes Museum of Art exhibit. The sculptor works intuitively, allowing his responses to specific materials—including wood, leather, twine, metal, and even grass—to guide his creative process. Pate is in town to discuss his work during the opening days of the exhibit. Gibbes Museum of Art, 135 Meeting St. Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, & Saturday, 10am-5pm; Wednesday, 10am-8pm; Sunday, 1-5pm. $12; $10 senior/college student/military; $6 ages four-17; free for child under four.
