The 2018 edition of ATHICA’s annual juried exhibition opens on Saturday, November 3, 2018 and runs through December 9, 2018. Guest Juror Teresa Bramlette Reeves, Director of Curatorial Affairs, KSU Zuckerman Museum of Art, Kennesaw, Georgia, selected 27 works by 22 artists from over 145 works in competition, stating, “I always enjoy the opportunity to see work by artists I’m not familiar with, especially when the pool is so strong. And as an Athens native and a UGA graduate, I have deep connections to the area that make this opportunity even more special.”
Inventive, socially-conscious, forceful, and lighthearted, the selected works include painting, photography, sculpture, collage, balloons, crocheted hula hoops, and more. Reeves will be present at the opening reception on Saturday, November 3, 2018 from 6-9 to talk about the work, as will many of the artists.
