Application for a

Lyndon House in Athens, Georgia

Often it is through the personal nature of our marks that viewers come to know work as ours.
Marks can be delicate, bold, gentle, aggressive, simple, complicated, obtuse or explicit, intuitive, logical, 2D or 3D, moving or static. And the message, the concept becomes enhanced and individualized by how our hand/mind/experience creates that unique mark.
Material and media are usually chosen to strengthen our language, our concept, our singular marks.
The Women’s Caucus for Art of Georgia has been invited to exhibit at Lyndon House Art Center during their 40th year celebration. In conjunction with the exhibit, the WCAGA members participating will take part in 2 drawing marathon days, Draw Table.
Curator: Georgia Strange
Bringing together a cohesive, engaging exhibit is an art unto itself. We are pleased to announce Georgia Strange, professor at UGA in Athens GA will be curating our WCAGA exhibit.
Georgia Strange, a professor in the Lamar Dodd School of Art, earned her bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences, a master's degree in Science Education and an MFA in Fine Arts from Indiana University. She recently earned an EdD in Higher Education from the University of Georgia. She has held teaching positions at Centre College of Kentucky, the Ohio State University, and Indiana University prior to her current appointment at University of Georgia.
Professor Strange received the James P. Holland Award for Exemplary Teaching and Service to Students and the Herman Frederic Lieber Memorial Award in Recognition of Distinguished Teaching at Indiana University. She was selected as a Senior Teaching Fellow at the University of Georgia and admitted to its Teaching Academy.
Service in the Peace Corps in Liberia, West Africa, work on an archaeological excavation in Greece, and several years of study in Italy are important influences on her artwork. She was awarded an Indiana Arts Commission Masters Fellowship and several competitive research grants at research universities where she has taught. In addition to many venues across the country, Strange’s sculptural work has been exhibited at SOHO20 Gallery in New York City since 1990. Strange serves on the Board of the College Art Association.
