New Hudgens exhibits feature penguins, Winslow Homer

If your "Happy Feet"-loving kids can't get enough of all things penguin, be sure to stop by the newest exhibit at the Jacqueline Casey Hudgens Center for the Arts.

"Antarctica," a photography exhibit featuring shots of penguins from J.J. L'Heureux, opened Thursday and will be on display through May 12 in the Children's Arts Museum.

The California photographer and painter shot photographs of Emporer, King, Adelie, Chinstrap and Gentoo penguins during six expeditions to Antarctica over the past six years, according to her Web site.

Another new exhibit, "Winslow Homer: Wood Engravings," opened Friday and will be on display through April 30 in the center's Fowler Gallery and the Kistner Atrium.

The exhibit features 50 of Homer's wood-cut engravings, created while he worked at Harper's Weekly magazine. The engravings are some of the earliest work from the 19th-century artist, who is best known for his landscape paintings, especially for his marine scenes.
