As much as William Christenberry’s works incorporate the buildings, signs, and scenes of his native Hale County, Alabama, they also reflect a decades-long practice of teaching, talking, and thinking about the creative life. His studio was the place where that thinking came to life as photographs, paintings, and sculptures.
Sandy and Kate Christenberry are your hosts for your visit to Christenberry’s home, garden, and studio in Cleveland Park. You’ll see the found objects and artworks that fired the artist’s imagination and learn about his methods from the two people who knew them best. The tour will conclude with a time to sit in the studio, ask questions, and hear stories about Christenberry’s life and work.
