About this Event
90 Carlton Street, Athens, GA 30602http://georgiamuseum.org/exhibit/our-town-and-beyond-works-by-early-members-of-the-athens-art-association/
This exhibition celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Athens Art Association and serves as a companion to the Lyndon House Arts Center’s exhibition of works by the later members.
Chartered in 1919 with some 20 members, the association continues to flourish, with its members active in the physical creation of art as well as in proselytizing art’s life-changing qualities.
The Georgia Museum of Art will feature works primarily from its collection by some of the earlier members of the association, including the founder, Laura Blackshear; charter members Annie May Holliday and Lucy May Stanton; and the man who helped propel the group after the 1930s, Lamar Dodd, by aligning it with the students’ art association he established at the University of Georgia.
