Exhibition and Events at ATHICA, Free and Open to All
- Opening Reception: Saturday, February 26, 6:00-9:00 PM
- Artists’ Roundtable Discussion: Sunday, March 27, 4:30 PM.
During the weeks of February 26, 2022 through March 27, 2022, the work of ATHICA members is featured in this sixth annual members’ showcase. As an all-volunteer and membership-based organization, ATHICA serves as a community hub for artists seeking conversation, collaboration, and a venue for sharing and experiencing contemporary art. The 2022 Members’ Showcase is a prime example of all of these essential components of the arts in Athens.
Open to all 2022 members, the exhibit is self-curated and installed by ATHICA board members and volunteers. The work on exhibit is eclectic and energetic, from artists of all ages and affinities and working in all types of media, including sculpture, photography, painting, and more.
Participating artists include Amy Wraga, Ann Sears (Annie Pop), Barbara Odil, Bob Croft, Christina Habibi, Claire Clements, Dave Litz, David Card, Donna McCavitt, George Davidson, Grant Evans, Jane Wright, Jason Machen, Jeanne Ann Davidson, Helen Kuykendall, Kim Henson Bingaman, Kristan Ryan, Kristin Roberts, Leslie Litt, Lisa Freeman, Lotta Milde, Maggie Davis, Margaret Agner, Mary Porter, Melody M. Croft, Mia York, Michael Lachowski, Mickey O Boyd, Paula Reynaldi, Rachel Evans, Reid McCallister, Ray Lee, Richard Huston, Robert D. Clements, Rosemary Woodel, Sue Sellew, and Susie Criswell.
ATHICA’s Director, Lauren Fancher, shares that “There’s a real feeling of celebration in the air with this year’s Members’ Showcase. Maybe it’s the hint of spring, or the delight we are feeling in seeing each other after such a long separation, or ATHICA’s recent purchase of its space, which was made possible by our community of artists and supporters. We seem to be emerging and experiencing the joy and power of our collective. It’s a wonderful moment to be a member of ATHICA.”
The 2022 ATHICA Members’ Showcase is sponsored in part by The James E. and Betty J. Huffer Foundation, The Georgia Council for the Arts, and The National Endowment for the Arts.
