No Longer Strangers

An ambitious group of artists focused on community aim to enrich the vibrancy of our local art scene. Compelled to create, these 9 artists crave the sanctuary of their creative spaces and seek understanding through their work.

Their collective motives add up to one universal virtue of growth – both creatively and professionally. Nurtured through collaboration with our local resources, the artists have experienced a six week retreat of learning and excavating their most authentic selves. The Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art, in partnership with Greater Augusta Arts Council, have provided a neutral space to allow for self examination, group collaboration, and the building of camaraderie between the 9 artists who are no longer strangers. In a world sometimes skewed towards division, art can bring us together.

The show will be on display at the Ann & Ellis Johnson Gallery of Art at the Jesse Norman School of the Arts (located at 739 Greene Street, Augusta, GA 30901) starting March 10th, with a reception with the artists on March 16th from 6-8pm.

*This program is supported in part by the Georgia Council for the Arts through the appropriations fo the Georgia General Assembly, and The Creel-Harison Foundation. Georgia Council for the Arts also receives suppport from its partner agency - the National Endowment for the Arts.This multidimensional exhibit is the final class project for students in The Business of Being an Artist class offered by the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art.
