The artists included in Secret Worlds invite us into mystical places through atmospheric and visionary works of art. Evoking the mysterious, these images showcase otherworldly environs or cause us to take a close look at something hidden in plain sight. With vibrant colors pulsing with energy and implied movement, these images take us on a journey through magical spaces. From the depths of a Louisiana Bayou to swirling tidal pools, or a forest of leaves to a distant mountain range, all the prints included in Secret Worlds are a window into strange lands.

Organized by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama.

Sponsors

Support for this exhibition was provided by the Alabama State Council on the Arts.
