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 Rebecca Kreisler @rbeecak I’m a science and math nerd at heart, which for many people seems at odds with being a creative person - but I beg to differ! I think they go hand in hand, and I love exploring the ways I can bring them together. Most of my work is purely geometric (though viewers often find their own associations for the colors and shapes), but for this piece, “Brand Recognition I (Delta, Citgo, Mitsubishi)” (cut and folded paper), I was curious whether I could take geometric shapes that already have an identity in culture and remove that level of recognition, at least initially, by making pattern more prominent. My favorite thing about Athens is the sense of community ...and the craft beer!
