Alvin Ailey

presented in The Jack Mitchell Gallery
January 13, 2017 – June 20, 2017

The Thrasher-Horne Center’s permanent Jack Mitchell Collection represents, in microcosm, Jack Mitchell’s forty-five years of photographing in New York City.

Mitchell was the photographer for American Ballet Theater for a decade and for The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater for over three decades, but is also known and recognized for his special assignment photography for The New York Times and for Dance Magazine, for which he has created 166 cover photographs.

Mitchell's photographs have also appeared on the covers of and in Rolling Stone, The New York Times Magazine, People Magazine, Newsweek, Time, Life, Vogue, Elle, Vanity Fair, and virtually every domestic and international publication featuring photographs of arts personalities. His long list of photographic subjects has included almost every notable performing and visual artist of the second part of the twentieth century such as actors: Robin Williams, Al Pacino, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jack Nicholson, Meryl Streep, Natalie Wood, and Gloria Swanson.

In addition, Mitchell had photographed subjects such as: Tennessee Williams, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Neil Simon, Luciano Pavarotti, Itzhak Perlman, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Alvin Ailey and Andy Warhol, to name just a few.

His work is included in four books including the recent Icons & Idols: A Photographer's Chronicle of the Arts 1960 - 1995. Mitchell received the 2002 Dance Magazine Award in New York City, the most prestigious annual recognition in the international dance community; he is the only photographer to receive this honor.

Friday, January 13th sees the return of Jack's full collection to the gallery bearing his name. Spectators and art lovers will be able to experience and view the collection of thirty-four exquisite black and white photographs from world-renowned photographer Jack Mitchell through June, when it returns once again to the theatre's archives.

Art Guild of Orange Park presents “The Neighborhood”

Our Backyards Bulldock Road Pond in Autumn

presented in The Lee Adams Florida Artists Gallery
January 13, 2017 – April 10, 2017

The Thrasher-Horne Center supports the Art Guild of Orange Park in their on-going mission to promote the visual arts in Clay County and Northeast Florida, and we are proud to again welcome the Art Guild of Orange Park to the center’s Lee Adams Florida Artists Gallery. For the 2017 season, The Art Guild of Orange Park presents a diverse and vibrant exhibit exploring the theme of “The Neighborhood.” This juried selection broadly plays with all the theme can entail. As in all their shows, excellence in technique and the high quality use of materials provide a striking exhibit that showcases the considerable accomplishment of the Art Guild of Orange Park membership.

The Florida Artists Fund was established by the late Louis and Mary Ward Huntley to fill a need by supplying additional financial support to the Thrasher-Horne Center for the Arts' galleries. After naming the Thrasher-Horne Center Lee Adams Florida Artists Gallery in 2004, Mary and Louis realized additional financial support would be necessary to help the galleries achieve the Thrasher-Horne Center's mission of exhibiting the finest Florida artists to the residents of Northeast Florida.

Donations to the Florida Artists Fund are 100% tax deductible by law and are administered to support the Thrasher-Horne Center galleries and outreach under the umbrella of the St. Johns River State College Foundation.
