Fine art master’s students at Jacksonville University have a new gallery of work on display.

Some of the art might move viewers emotionally, while other pieces are literally moving.

A new photography exhibit at Jacksonville’s Museum of Contemporary Art focuses on the American South. Southern Exposure: Portraits of a Changing Landscape features the work of seven renowned photographers.

The project looks at the stories the land can tell.

MOCA Jacksonville Assistant Curator Jaime DeSimone says she knew the new show would be about the South.

“It took us awhile to understand and refine what that meant. Eventually we decided to focus only on the land,” DeSimone said. “Most of the photographs that you’re seeing don’t include people.”

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Jacksonville will present a new exhibition of abstract paintings next week. The exhibition is called "Abstraction over Time" and features the work of Michael Goldberg.

According to MOCA director Marcelle Polednik, this is the only exhibition to display the entire span of Goldberg’s work.

“It really does show the major accomplishments and achievements of his entire career,” she said.

Instead of lush landscapes or realistic portraits, Goldberg’s work is a collision of color and brush strokes.
