Beloved Land: a Series by David Hale
On view: May 27 – July 22, 2017
Lower Atrium and West Upper Atrium
Every aspect of "The Beloved Land Series" echoes David Hale’s love for Athens, Georgia. Hale draws his influence for these multi-media works from the Creek (or Muscogee) Indians, who called this land, between the forks of the Oconee Rivers, Ikunu- tchaka, the Beloved Land. Hale says, “It was more than a special place to them, it was Sacred, and they gave their lives to protect it and the creatures that reside upon it.”
Special Events include:
Saturday, June 3, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. – Patterns in Nature Workshop with David Hale
3:00 – 4:00 p.m. – Beloved Land Lecture by Historian Steven Scurry
4:00 p.m. – Lyndon House Arts Edition Series Launch with an original print by David Hale.  This edition of 100 signed works will benefit the Arts Center’s programming.

Time Warp…and Weft
On view: June 15 - July 29, 2017
South Gallery
This exhibition is of the work of six artists who create woven responses as visual recordings of the passing of time: Janet Austin, Geri Forkner, Janette Meetze, Rebecca Mezoff, Tommye Scanlin, and Kathy Spoering. Three of the artists have an ongoing practice of daily weaving a separate bit on a loom dedicated to the purpose, almost like making an entry into a journal or diary.  Another has designed and woven tapestries representing each calendar month of the year.  The fifth artist uses discarded papers and other objects in a small daily weavings that become part of larger yearlong pieces when assembled together. 
Gallery Talk and Artist Demo June 20, 6:00 p.m.

All exhibitions are free and open to the public during regular gallery hours of Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 9:00 p.m., and Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Children must be accompanied by an adult. For more information, please call 706-613-3623.
