The Lyndon House Arts Center hosts new art exhibitions throughout the summer in Athens, Georgia. The center showcases local and statewide artists and champions art education, appreciation, and diversity. Here are some of their latest collections on display to discover this month.
Picture This: Shining a light on contemporary art in Georgia
Picture This, the third in the series of traveling exhibitions, will be on view from June 18 to September 3. The collection includes 11 contemporary Georgian painters specializing in narrative work and is located in the Atrium Galleries.
Margo Newmark Rosenbaum
Athens-based artist and musician Margo Newmark Rosenbaum presents two exhibitions featuring a variety of photographs and paintings. Rosenbaum will present a talk during the Third Thursday Art Night, July 21 and his exhibitions will be presented from July 2 to October 7.
Ceramics by Mark Johnson & Zuzka Vaclavik
Mark Johnson and Zuzka Vaclavik are two ceramists who use wood-fired processes in their pottery. This method, used on the majority of the exhibited sculptures, produces more unpredictable results than an electric oven. Their works can be seen in the Lobby window from July 2 to October 7.
Window work: Cédric Smith
The Window Works project at Lyndon House Arts Center features site-specific artwork by Cedric Smith. Smith, a Macon-based artist, explores the representation of black people in the United States in this collection. His works are located in the windows of the main entrance outside.
Lyndon House Arts Center is free to the public. Their opening hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
