January 12 - February 6
Every two years, the University of North Georgia Art Galleries hosts exhibitions of recent work by full-time and part-time members of the Department of Visual Arts faculty. The exhibitions include a wide variety of media and artistic styles, from traditional drawing and painting, ceramics, sculpture, and printmaking, to video and mixed media works. The exhibitions are an opportunity for students to see art made by their professors and instructors, and for the general public to see the wide range of art produced and taught at the University of North Georgia. Each studio faculty member will have work featured on their home campus.
Exhibiting artists in the Roy C. Moore Art Gallery on the Gainesville Campus include John Amoss, Chandra Baerg, Rebecca Brantley, Jennifer Graff, Jennifer Manzella, and Erin McIntosh.
Reception: January 15, 5 p.m.
February 19 - March 25
Constructing the Past
an exhibit of landscapes by John Cleaveland curated by Dr. Michael Kemling
Cleaveland received his BFA degree from UGA and held a graduate assistantship in the Studies Abroad program in Cortona, Italy. He has exhibited his work at the Albany Museum of Art, University of Georgia, Madison Cultural Center, and the Lyndon House Art Center. His paintings are part of the collections of the Morris Museum of Art, 3-M Company, Bessemer Trust, and the Alabama Power Company.
This exhibition of John Cleaveland's paintings examines the conceit that the landscape is our greatest steward of the past. Cleaveland not only records his environment, but, also, constructs and reconstructs the past by often placing time-worn buildings within sprawling vistas of the South.
Artist & Curator Talk with Reception: February 19, 2 p.m.
April 2 - April 23
