Augusta University’s Mary S. Byrd Gallery of Art announces Cumberland Island: Land, Water, Wind, and Light
by Christa Bowden, Emily Gomez and Ernesto Gomez

*There will be an artist talk and reception on August 19, 2021 at 5:00pm in the Dome Room in University Hall on the AU Summerville Campus. 

This multi-media exhibition offers the fine art photography by Christa Bowden and Emily Gomez along with the wind drawings and sound installations of Ernesto Gomez.

This on-going collaborative project, which began in 2016 with the celebration of the national park centennial documents the unique biome and history of Cumberland Island. With this project, the artists hope to expand the existing documentation of Cumberland Island to increase awareness of its significance and fragility and provide a record for future generations, should the island be lost or irrevocably altered due to climate change or other threats. Through their photographs, wind drawings, and sound collages record the diversity of the island’s ecosystem.

About this exhibition:
“Stephanie “Ham” Willingham and Cee “Payasa” Moses are an unlikely duo who take different approaches to art and life.As the operations directors at the Jessye Norman School of the Arts, the two have found commonality in their passion for art and teaching, and their dedication to their craft.
Ham draws inspiration from the natural world, using flora and fauna as a springboard for her current body of explorative pieces pieces. Paying particular attention to to color, form, and texture, she creates expressive and dynamic compositions featuring animals and plants to reflect a sense of connection from the natural to the spiritual realms.
In contrast, Cee draws from technological and futuristic aesthetics create work that is both cerebral and emotional. She often uses the contrast of the technical and human, emotional and logical, cold and warm (both in color and in concept) as integral components of her work. In this recent body of work, she has used abstraction in order to access the realm of the spiritual and emotional in a meditative and non-representational form.”
