After 11 weeks that the Arts Center has opened it’s doors again. Please check HERE for the new hours and procedures for visiting. However, we have this incredible 45th Juried Show to share that we would like to continue to feature 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 Paula Runyon @paula.runyon and I have always loved exploring the outside world; the plants, animals, rocks - everything. I am hugely inspired by the colors and textures of these things and love interacting with natural materials in my work. This piece “Soft World II” (handwoven fabric, felt, embroidery) was made while I was artist in residence at the Lyndon House Arts Center! My favorite thing about Athens is all the great outdoor spaces, and the artists who I am glad call friends.
