The Thomas Center Galleries invite the community to the opening reception for its new ART THRU ARCHITECTURE The Work of Ron Haase exhibition Friday, March 28, 2014 from 7 to 10 p.m. The ART THRU ARCHITECTURE The Work of Ron Haase exhibition will be on display in the Main Gallery from Friday, March 28-Saturday, June 21, 2014. Longtime Melrose, Fla. resident, well-known architect and accomplished artist, Ron Haase is also Professor Emeritus from the University of Florida School of Architecture and author of “Classic Cracker: Florida's Wood Frame Vernacular Architecture” (Pineapple Press) which explores the rich history of Cracker Florida and Cracker house design. In the exhibition’s 50 artworks, Haase responds to the architecture around him, as well as the inner vision of his own architecture, in a variety of media. While often abstract, his work reflects a sense of place inherent in our regional landscape and state’s vernacular architecture. Selected items from the ART THRU ARCHITECTURE The Work of Ron Haase exhibition can be viewed online at http://www.flickr.com/photos/gainesville/sets/72157642488386355/. On Saturday, April 26 at 1 p.m. in the Historic Thomas Center’s Long Gallery, Haase will give a lecture sharing the same name as his popular book “Classic Cracker: Florida's Wood Frame Vernacular Architecture,” in which he will delve deeper into the architectural style linked so closely to the early development of our region. Also coming to the Thomas Center’s Mezzanine Gallery is the Alachua County Public Schools’ Visual Arts Program SHOWCASING STUDENT ART Elementary Grade exhibition which will be on display April 5-May 3, featuring dozens of works of art in a variety of media that were created in the 2013-2014 school year by Alachua County elementary art students.
