I had the pleasure of visiting one of B'ham's newest art galleries last night. Avondale Bricks Gallery not only has a fitting tribute to the late Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, but also a fine collection of Cuban art. Stephen Humphreys, publisher of Birmingham Weekly and gallery owner is sharing art by eight Cuban artists that he has met over the past 15 years as a frequent visitor to Cuba. His photographs are a natural addition to the exhibit as well. Greeting you at the door are the colorful totem inspired sculptures by local artist Dick Jemison. Today, one of his sculptures with a few of Stephen's photographs in the background.
