After 11 weeks that the Arts Center has opened it’s doors again. Please check HERE for the new hours and procedures for visiting. However, we have this incredible 45th Juried Show to share that we would like to continue to feature online. Each day (see menu to the left) in the morning hours we will post a new work on display in the galleries with a short story.
HI! I’m John W. English and despite my Anglo surname, I grew up in my Mother’s Italian family and that experience influenced my life-long passion for Italian culture. For this piece, “Chirp.” “Squawk.” “Neon, 3-D Printer” I couldn’t resist making a colorful and playful commentary on our divided national politics. As for my favorite thing about Athens, I have been a devotee of ATHICA since its founding because local artists need a totally independent gallery to show bold, new work.
