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 Kathryn Caron @kathryn.caron We moved to Athens in 2019 from art-filled Asheville, NC, so it was a pleasant surprise to see the range of artists and their work at the 45th exhibit. I was inspired to share my work, "Toe River" (resist-dyed, handmade felt with handmade silver embellishment) and "SXSW" (resist-dyed, handmade felt with embroidery stitching) by the welcoming spirit of the Lyndon House. There’s lots to like about Athens, but the slower pace and the friendliness of the people made it "home" in a very short time.
