Fall Artists’ Market | GHIA

Exhibit Dates: September 10, 2021 – October 8, 2021 

Opening Reception: September 10, 2021 from 6 – 8pm

GHIA was unable to present the annual Spring Artists’ Market in 2020 and 2021 and had to cancel the annual Juried exhibition, A Sense of Place. So as not to have an empty gallery space, we are going to have a Fall Artists’ Market instead! Emerging and established Augusta-area artists will display and sell their work in the Main Gallery of the Institute. Works represented will include sculpture, photography, ceramics, paintings, drawings, jewelry, prints, and fine crafts with options to suit all tastes and budgets. A returning component of this year’s Market is the Artists’ Boutique, a gallery section featuring smaller works attractively priced at $100 or less—the perfect place to find an artful and affordable treasure.

Cumberland Island: Land, Water, Wind, and Light | Artist Talk & Reception

Date: August 19, 2021| Time: 5pm | Location: The Dome Room, University Hall (Augusta University Summerville Campus)

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

on exhibition August 11 – October 1, 2021 at the Mary S. Byrd Gallery inside Washington Hall

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.
