As you know, the Arts Center is closed until further notice. However, we have an incredible Juried Show to share. We are moving the 45th online. Each day (see menu to the left) in the morning hours we will post a new work on display in the galleries with a short story.
Hi! I’m Mary Porter @porterpaint and lately, I’ve been inspired by the supermarket landscape and how products get us to buy them. For my painting “Spam,” really no serious intent here, just a bit of fun... but it sure has been interesting to hear different people’s reaction to Spam and hear their Spam stories. And for my painting “Heinz Ketchup,” I don’t even like ketchup, but it feels like home. Athens is a loving community that really knows how to celebrate all the great things that happen here, as well as support its members in challenging times.
