Turning of the Seasons  - Georgia’s importance as a center for wood-turned bowls is largely due to the contributions of three generations of the Atlanta-based Moulthrop family. Turning of the Seasons: The Moulthrop Family and the Chattahoochee River Dams Project will present a selection of works by Ed, Philip, and Matt Moulthrop, including turned bowls that Philip and Matt recently completed using wood salvaged from the old 19th – century Chattahoochee River dams. The exhibition also offers a look at the history of the Chattahoochee River dams that were so vital to the textile mills in Columbus. The Moulthrop family’s outstanding wood-turned bowls, made from wood indigenous to the Southeast, have received national recognition for their beauty and high craftsmanship. “The father of modern wood turning,” Ed Moulthrop (1916- 2003), was a prominent Atlanta architect whose designs include the Atlanta Civic Center, the Callaway Memorial Chapel at Callaway Gardens, and the Van Leer Electrical Engineering building at Georgia Institute of Technology.

Gordon Parks: Segregation Story  - On September 24, 1956, against the backdrop of the Montgomery bus boycott, Life magazine published a photo essay titled “The Restraints: Open and Hidden.” Staff photographer Gordon Parks had traveled to Mobile and Shady Grove, Alabama, to document the lives of the related Thornton, Causey, and Tanner families in the “Jim Crow” South. As the Civil Rights Movement began to gain momentum, Parks chose to focus on the activities of everyday life in these African- American families – Sunday shopping, children playing, doing laundry – over-dramatic demonstrations. Guest curated by Columbus Staten University students, Gordon Parks – Segregation Story features 12 photographs from “The Restraints,” now in the collection of the Do Good Fund, a Columbus-based nonprofit that lends its collection of contemporary Southern photography to a variety of museums, nonprofit galleries, and non-traditional venues. Students’ reflections, enhanced by a research trip to Mobile, offer contemporary thoughts on works that were purposely designed to present ordinary people quietly struggling against discrimination. As the readers of Life confronted social inequality in their weekly magazine, Parks subtly exposed segregation’s damaging effects while challenging racial stereotypes
