Exhibit: Tom Polk

Exhibitions, Visual Arts

Through Aug. 13. While Tom Polk’s professional life was fulfilled as an associate professor and area chairman of art history at UGA, he was also a life-long artist. He earned a combined undergraduate degree from Brown and the Rhode Island School of Design in both art history and studio art. At peace in nature, landscapes were his most frequent subject, and the State Botanical Garden of Georgia was one of his favorite haunts. This show will feature drawings and paintings of landscapes and flowers executed across the span of his life, but with a special emphasis on the explosion of work done during his retirement.
