Vesta’s Matrix is now in the permanent collection of the University of Alabama. This 36×36″ painting was recently on view at the Sarah Moody Gallery of Art as part of Rutstein’s Out of Thin Air exhibition.
Since 1950, the Sarah Moody Gallery of Art, supported by The University of Alabama’s College of Arts and Sciences, has collected works on paper, photography, prints, paintings, and small sculpture. The gallery regularly presents exhibitions from this permanent collection. The collection is both a permanent asset and a teaching tool. Now constituting one of the best institutional collections in Alabama, it also illustrates the passing currents that keep the visual arts a vital and incisive record of contemporary history.
