Moderately strenuous 4-mile hike in a highly scenic location, Upper Quillan Creek Forest Area.  Most of the hike is off trail, there are lots of ups and downs, and several rock-hopping crossings are required across small creeks.

We’ll walk along two creeks and on an old road.  At a beautiful waterfall we’ll visit the site of an old mill.  On this hike we’ll see several small waterfalls on side creeks and tributaries to Quillan Creek.  We will visit at least three very pretty waterfalls on Quillan Creek itself along the way.

Please bring picnic lunch and water for the day.  We expect to finish about 4:00 p.m.  Optional dinner after.  Well-behaved, properly supervised children age 9 and over able to walk 4 miles off trail without complaining welcome.

Note-To view photos of what we will see on this trip, please click on this link:

Please be sure to click on the link and view the photographs.

Reservations Required: If you wish to participate in this outing, you are required to call Dan Frederick, 205/631-4680 or email your reservation to seoutings@bellsouth.net by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 23.  When you contact Dan, please be sure you leave either your phone number or email address.  This outing is limited to 20 people, and we will break up into two separate groups of up to ten people each with its own separate leader in order to comply with U.S. Forest Service regulations.  We hope the limitation will not prove to be a problem.

If you make a reservation with Dan to come on this trip and then for any reason decide later to not come on this outing, please telephone Dan, 205/631-4680 right away.  If we have 20 people signed up on the day of the hike and, say, we have two people on the waiting list and then two people who signed up don’t show up for the hike, those two no-show people have in effect deprived the two on the waiting list from participating.  Please don’t be a no-show.  If you aren’t coming after making a reservation, please notify Dan.

At a later date leader will advise meeting time and place only to those who have signed up for this trip. 

Info: Dan Frederick, seoutings@bellsouth.net, or 205/631-4680

If you want to learn about bees and excited to start backyard beekeeping, this is the class for you. We concentrate a series of classes into a full day class to give you an in-depth look at becoming a beekeeper. You can walk into this class, knowing nothing about honeybees and walk out prepare and excited about your new adventure.
We love to teach beekeeping and not tell you what to do. Regardless of your age, whether you are male or female or your beekeeping goals, we do our best to teach a reasonable approach to beekeeping that works best for you.
The class is lecture-based and interactive, so you will get a chance to open a real hive, weather permitting. We do not open hives during periods of rain, impending poor weather or when temperatures are below 60°. If we won’t be able to open a hive during class, several other opportunities for opening a hive will be scheduled.
We provide catered lunch and drinks from Chipotle (which is awesome).

Register through our website for more information and details.

Friends Gallery / Jan 4 - Jan 31, 2020
Plaza Gallery / Feb 1 - Feb 28, 2020
Bib & Tucker Sew-Op is a non-profit located in Birmingham, AL. Their mission is to cultivate skills and an environment for those who sew or want to sew (ages 9-99) where everyone can be both a student and a teacher. They achieve their mission through projects conducted in the community, workshops and weekly sewing sessions conducted in their shop. They aim to be a hub for sewing-related activities that promote empowerment, education and economic opportunity.

The March Quilts began in 2015 when Bib & Tucker Sew-Op partnered with UAB’s Department of Art & Art History and the Birmingham Museum of Art to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery marches through open sewing sessions that yielded 461 quilt blocks. Sew-Op members stitched the blocks together and made three quilts, which hung at the Selma Public Library and the Alabama Department of Archives in Montgomery during the anniversary. Due to an overwhelmingly positive response, collaborators agreed that it should become an annual project. For five years, Bib & Tucker members have chosen a civil or human rights theme and facilitated open sewing sessions and discussion. During these sessions, community members created quilt blocks that express personal feelings about the theme. Since the beginning, Bib & Tucker members have sewn 10 quilts from over 1,050 submitted blocks. Themes have included celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Loving vs. Virginia Supreme Court Ruling, raising awareness of gender pay equity, environmental justice and most recently, unsung heroines of Alabama.

The Hudson River School is known as the first American artistic fraternity which began in the mid19th century under artist Thomas Cole, a British immigrant who brought with him the emotive and imaginative European influence of Romanticism. After Cole’s death, the movement known as the Hudson River School rose to prominence highlighting the natural beauty of America. This artistic movement, focusing on sweeping landscapes, played a part in the westward expansion of America, propelled by the increasing popularity of Manifest Destiny. But in the mercurial landscape of a growing nation, the Hudson River School’s popularity fell as quickly as it rose. Focus IV explores the rise and fall, as well as the consequences, of this impactful, yet short-lived artistic movement. Focus is a series of exhibitions that spotlights local and regional private art collections in the Southeastern United States. Focus IV: Eclipse of the Hudson River School / Selections from the Koleszar Collection highlights work from the Birmingham-based collection of Bill and Elizabeth Koleszar.

In 2013, Alabama-based artist Allyson Comstock spent six weeks living and making art in Antarctica as part of the National Science Foundation Antarctic Artists and Writers program, working and living alongside scientists engaged in climate change research. Comstock’s series of drawings, Antarctica: Micro, Macro, and In-between, questions how our society views and understands the larger natural world. Each triptych in the series contains three perspectives of the landscape of Antarctica: the macro, the micro, and the artist’s view — the in-between. To foster a deeper understanding and conversation about Antarctica, Comstock created postcards from images taken during her time in Antarctica which she mailed to people across the world. This group of people, comprised of a myriad of professions, created artwork in response to her postcards resulting in the series Responding to Antarctica. AEIVA’s iteration of the series will also feature response pieces created by UAB students, painting a picture of the impact of Antarctica, the disappearing continent.

Moderately strenuous 4-mile hike in a highly scenic location, Upper Quillan Creek Forest Area.  Most of the hike is off trail, there are lots of ups and downs, and several rock-hopping crossings are required across small creeks.

We’ll walk along two creeks and on an old road.  At a beautiful waterfall we’ll visit the site of an old mill.  On this hike we’ll see several small waterfalls on side creeks and tributaries to Quillan Creek.  We will visit at least three very pretty waterfalls on Quillan Creek itself along the way.

Please bring picnic lunch and water for the day.  We expect to finish about 4:00 p.m.  Optional dinner after.  Well-behaved, properly supervised children age 9 and over able to walk 4 miles off trail without complaining welcome.

Note-To view photos of what we will see on this trip, please click on this link:

Please be sure to click on the link and view the photographs.

Reservations Required: If you wish to participate in this outing, you are required to call Dan Frederick, 205/631-4680 or email your reservation to seoutings@bellsouth.net by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 23.  When you contact Dan, please be sure you leave either your phone number or email address.  This outing is limited to 20 people, and we will break up into two separate groups of up to ten people each with its own separate leader in order to comply with U.S. Forest Service regulations.  We hope the limitation will not prove to be a problem.

If you make a reservation with Dan to come on this trip and then for any reason decide later to not come on this outing, please telephone Dan, 205/631-4680 right away.  If we have 20 people signed up on the day of the hike and, say, we have two people on the waiting list and then two people who signed up don’t show up for the hike, those two no-show people have in effect deprived the two on the waiting list from participating.  Please don’t be a no-show.  If you aren’t coming after making a reservation, please notify Dan.

At a later date leader will advise meeting time and place only to those who have signed up for this trip. 

Info: Dan Frederick, seoutings@bellsouth.net, or 205/631-4680

If you want to learn about bees and excited to start backyard beekeeping, this is the class for you. We concentrate a series of classes into a full day class to give you an in-depth look at becoming a beekeeper. You can walk into this class, knowing nothing about honeybees and walk out prepare and excited about your new adventure.
We love to teach beekeeping and not tell you what to do. Regardless of your age, whether you are male or female or your beekeeping goals, we do our best to teach a reasonable approach to beekeeping that works best for you.
The class is lecture-based and interactive, so you will get a chance to open a real hive, weather permitting. We do not open hives during periods of rain, impending poor weather or when temperatures are below 60°. If we won’t be able to open a hive during class, several other opportunities for opening a hive will be scheduled.
We provide catered lunch and drinks from Chipotle (which is awesome).

Register through our website for more information and details.

Friends Gallery / Jan 4 - Jan 31, 2020
Plaza Gallery / Feb 1 - Feb 28, 2020
Bib & Tucker Sew-Op is a non-profit located in Birmingham, AL. Their mission is to cultivate skills and an environment for those who sew or want to sew (ages 9-99) where everyone can be both a student and a teacher. They achieve their mission through projects conducted in the community, workshops and weekly sewing sessions conducted in their shop. They aim to be a hub for sewing-related activities that promote empowerment, education and economic opportunity.

The March Quilts began in 2015 when Bib & Tucker Sew-Op partnered with UAB’s Department of Art & Art History and the Birmingham Museum of Art to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery marches through open sewing sessions that yielded 461 quilt blocks. Sew-Op members stitched the blocks together and made three quilts, which hung at the Selma Public Library and the Alabama Department of Archives in Montgomery during the anniversary. Due to an overwhelmingly positive response, collaborators agreed that it should become an annual project. For five years, Bib & Tucker members have chosen a civil or human rights theme and facilitated open sewing sessions and discussion. During these sessions, community members created quilt blocks that express personal feelings about the theme. Since the beginning, Bib & Tucker members have sewn 10 quilts from over 1,050 submitted blocks. Themes have included celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Loving vs. Virginia Supreme Court Ruling, raising awareness of gender pay equity, environmental justice and most recently, unsung heroines of Alabama.

The Hudson River School is known as the first American artistic fraternity which began in the mid19th century under artist Thomas Cole, a British immigrant who brought with him the emotive and imaginative European influence of Romanticism. After Cole’s death, the movement known as the Hudson River School rose to prominence highlighting the natural beauty of America. This artistic movement, focusing on sweeping landscapes, played a part in the westward expansion of America, propelled by the increasing popularity of Manifest Destiny. But in the mercurial landscape of a growing nation, the Hudson River School’s popularity fell as quickly as it rose. Focus IV explores the rise and fall, as well as the consequences, of this impactful, yet short-lived artistic movement. Focus is a series of exhibitions that spotlights local and regional private art collections in the Southeastern United States. Focus IV: Eclipse of the Hudson River School / Selections from the Koleszar Collection highlights work from the Birmingham-based collection of Bill and Elizabeth Koleszar.

In 2013, Alabama-based artist Allyson Comstock spent six weeks living and making art in Antarctica as part of the National Science Foundation Antarctic Artists and Writers program, working and living alongside scientists engaged in climate change research. Comstock’s series of drawings, Antarctica: Micro, Macro, and In-between, questions how our society views and understands the larger natural world. Each triptych in the series contains three perspectives of the landscape of Antarctica: the macro, the micro, and the artist’s view — the in-between. To foster a deeper understanding and conversation about Antarctica, Comstock created postcards from images taken during her time in Antarctica which she mailed to people across the world. This group of people, comprised of a myriad of professions, created artwork in response to her postcards resulting in the series Responding to Antarctica. AEIVA’s iteration of the series will also feature response pieces created by UAB students, painting a picture of the impact of Antarctica, the disappearing continent.
