The Ties That Bind | GHIA Exhibit

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

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


The Ties That Bind
Data analytics and media in the digital age is being used in strategic ways to efficiently target specific groups of people for personal, political or financial gain. Ideologies of “Us vs Them” are created to further divide people into groups that can be mobilized and manipulated to fight a perceived enemy.  For this reason, objective truth and empathy have been replaced by sensationalism, half-truths and extremist social/political ideologies.  This portfolio exchange aims to celebrate diversity and common threads that we all share.  Invitations to artists will be extended with the intent of representing diversity in race, culture, geography, gender and aesthetics.

The theme, “The Ties That Bind” is open for each artist’s interpretation.  16 Artists will be invited to participate and will create an edition of 18 prints on 15” x 15” paper.  Each artist is encouraged to create visual images with real or implied connecting points in the center of all four edges of their print.  When displayed together, there should be an implied point of connection, whether arranged side by side or top to bottom. The prints will be displayed at a national print conference in Cleveland and will be included in the permanent collection at Kent State University.  They will also be displayed nationally and in Canada at a site at each of the participant’s cities.

Chadwick Tolley
This print exchange and exhibit is organized by Chadwick Tolley, local artist and assistant professor of art at Augusta University. Tolley teaches printmaking and drawing at Augusta University and has exhibited widely across the United States and won various awards for his work. The exhibit will be on display in the 3rd floor galleries during the Fall Artists’ Market.

CANCELLED – Drivin’ N Cryin’ with special guest The Shaun Piazza Band | ALMA

Date: September 3, 2021 | Time: 7-11pm | Venue: The Imperial Theatre

“Crunching hard rock is the ‘Drivin’ part, brittle countryish balladry is the ‘Cryin’, with the two linked by a heavy dose of Led Zeppelinphilia. If Paul Westerberg had grown up worshipping Angus Young instead of Alex Chilton, The Replacements might have sounded something like this Atlanta band.” – Rolling Stone Magazine
