The Mobile Arts Council has brought the outside indoors for July. A pair of exhibits focused on land and water allows viewers a place to reflect on the balmiest season of the year while protected from the triple-digit heat.
The Skinny Gallery is home to artist Janet Hinton’s series of landscape and water paintings which reveal her interest in specific places. In addition to line, shape, color and texture, she has called upon atmosphere and time of day as essential elements for tone and mood.
“The subject matter is from home and travels. A camera and sketchbook provide the starting place for my paintings,” Hinton wrote.
In the smaller of MAC’s two rooms, Shawn Branson has a more aqua-centric focus with his handcrafted surfboards of foam and wood. Branson will give a live demonstration of his skills during the July 8 LoDa Artwalk.
The Danielle Juzan Gallery will be filled with Renee Hoadley’s black light art show utilizing her interest in sacred geometry. She will give an artist’s talk on July 30.
The exhibits, at 318 Dauphin St., are free and open to the public. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

MMoA series screens Meyers film
For weeks now the Mobile Museum of Art (4850 Museum Drive) has run a film series to help locals beat the heat and indulge in artistic endeavors all at the same time. The last of these flicks listed on MoMA’s website screens Sunday, July 10, at 2 p.m. in the cool and dark confines of the Larkins Auditorium.
The featured film is “Ron Meyers and The Usual Suspects” by George McCauley. The filmmaker said of the Georgia-based potter: “Ron has been an inspiration for the clay community through the years and continues to be one of our leading potters and heroes. Given his importance, it is odd that little has been done to publicly document his contribution to the ceramic arts. As one of Ron’s first students in 1967, I am honored to have had the opportunity to remedy that oversight.”
Popcorn is provided, entrance is free and guests are welcome to bring their own libations.
