A Century of Art: The Athens Art Association, 1919 – 2019, featuring works by members of the association from each decade, past to present.
Founded in 1919, by Laura Blackshear, the Athens Art Association continues to thrive. During monthly meetings, held on the first Thursday of each month at the Lyndon House Arts Center, members share ideas, materials, and concepts, and support each other with exhibition opportunities and more.
Organized and co-curated by Christine Langone, an Emerita Professor in Leadership Education at UGA, and the Lyndon House Arts Center’s preparator Celia Brooks, the exhibit features works by long-time members Lucy Stanton, Sallie Goodwyn, Millie Dearing, Rainey Gentry, Joan Hill, Connie Flynn, Nancy Roberson, Jean Gibson, Hildegarde Timberlake, and more.
Co-curator Christine Langone reflects that the exhibit, “highlights the tremendous contribution the Athens Art Association has made to Athens area artists through its educational programs, artistic activities, and sharing/comradery which enhance the lives and creativity of its members over 10 decades.”
