The Collectors host Spalding Nix’s Culture Club in Athens

Visual Arts, Free Events

In 2003, Spalding Nix founded Spalding Nix Fine Art upon returning to his native Atlanta after working at Sotheby’s in New York. Mr. Nix established Culture Club to give Atlantans the opportunity to experience presentations by world-class experts on all things cultural. Spalding will join us for a special edition of Culture Club in Athens and will speak about the art of collecting and appraising private collections. The Collectors focus on connoisseurship and raise funds for museum acquisitions. If you are interested in becoming a member of the museum or joining the Collectors, visit georgiamuseum.org/join or call 706.542.4662.

Studio Workshop: Drawing

Classes and Workshops, Visual Arts

Join Athens-based artist and educator Brian Hitselberger for a four-part series of drawing courses that serves as an introduction to techniques and materials. Both enthusiastic beginners and more seasoned practitioners are welcome. Topics to be covered include contour, value, simplification and detail, drawing on-the-fly and more focused, detailed methods of mark-making. All sessions will use the museum's collection as source material, including its archives and many works not regularly on display. Participants will be introduced to brush and ink washes, ink pen, colored pencil and hard and soft graphite. The cost of the course is a $15 materials fee, which will cover all necessary supplies for the four sessions (Sept. 7, 14, 21 and 28). Space is limited; call 706-542-8863 or email callan@uga.edu to register.
