Hidden In Plain Sight series is driven by challenging personal and current social issues and includes an interactive installation as well as two dimensional artwork dealing with subjects such as gun violence, the restricting and sexualizing of women, and sex and human trafficking. The use of materials often associated with women including fabric, stitching, quilting, and wallpaper patterns is contrasted with the harsh realities of the content to provoke the viewer's thinking and influence intellectual and emotional dialogue with others.

2017 WCAGA Member Exhibit, Our Nature.
March 23 to May 5, 2017

Nature and the environment is ”Ours” to enjoy, care about and celebrate. Some of us make work inspired by our surroundings, through images that remind us our world is to be treasured and sustained. Plants, birds, animals, insects and flowers reach into our psyche. We may be awed, inspired, calmed, excited and even protective of this world that sustains our life, and some artists create work that speaks to this inspiration. Other artists address the backstory to our urban environment. They bravely ask, ”What happens when we neglect, reject or ignore nature's importance?” This exhibit reflects our own vision . . . our own Nature.

Athens Art Share
Group

The newly formed Athens Art Share Group welcomes all members of WCAGA and potential members (visitors) to attend their Studio Visits. 

The format for their meetings is focused on the individual artist studio they are visiting.  They see this as an opportunity for the artist to have a focused viewing and response from members and artists in the community… A time for feedback and a constructive/ supportive critique.  We are also sharing books about art, brainstorming for future exhibition opportunities, and just general “art talk”! They plan to meet once a month on Sunday afternoons.

Please join the Athens Art Share Group!

Stacy Koffman is coordinating this group.  If you have any questions, and to find out the dates they meet, please email stacy.koffman@ung.edu
