TU Art Gallery to feature the work of Wayne Sides

Alabama native Wayne Sides is a photographer and artist who gained regional recognition in the 1970s and 1980s for his powerful photographs of the Ku Klux Klan, some of which have been displayed at Birmingham Civil Rights Museum in Birmingham, Alabama.

Sides’ work will be on display in the Thomas University Art Gallery March 4 through April 11. The TU Art Gallery is located inside the Student Life Center on TU’s Magnolia Campus.

In addition to his photography, Sides is also recognized for his collaborative work with musicians, poets, other performing artists and for his wide range of subject matter in his photography. He is currently a professor of photography at the University of North Alabama.

Sides has collaborated with Alabama poet Jeanie Thompson in the exhibition “Litany for a Vanishing Landscape” and in her collection of poems, “White for Harvest.” He is also a co-author of the book “Silence and the Hammer” and has appeared in multidisciplinary performances, including one with the University of Alabama’s Bankhead Visiting Writers’ Series.

The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public. The gallery is open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Thursday, and 8 a.m.-noon Friday.
