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 Nick Daglis @groundupglass and am a glassblower, sculptor and the Studio Manager at LHAC. I love technology and art, and exploring what roles these concepts play in the human experience. My piece, “Broom 2.0” is made entirely of Cat5 networking cable and negates all technological capabilities for which these wires were designed in favor of the pragmatic, analog function of sweeping. My second piece, “Vessel”(blown glass), tackles this concept from the opposite angle. The immense time and physical labor of glassmaking, an ancient and relatively primitive process, I find to be my antithesis to an otherwise digital existence. My favorite thing about Athens is the town’s abundance of art and makers. With exhibits, classes, lectures, workshops, guilds and more, Athens fosters a great community for artists and I am proud to be a part of it!
