Center and Still by Meg Franklin
Alice Hirt & Jo Bearse Endowed Art Exhibition

Aug. 21-Sept. 18
Opening Reception 6 p.m.

Meg Franklin is a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based artist who was born and raised in Young Harris. Her paintings focus on the raw physicality of objects and explore the haziness of identity in the face of the human need to establish it. Her still lifes are comprised of objects that fall just short of identifiable, creating a sense of recognition while remaining too elusive to name or assign with a function. Franklin earned her B.A. in English and creative writing from Washington and Lee University, her M.F.A. in creative writing from the University of Florida, and her M.F.A. in painting from the New York Academy of Art.

The Hate Project by Steve Cole

Sept. 25-Oct. 23
Opening Reception 6 p.m.

Just what does “hate” mean? How does it spread? How can intolerance be stopped? Those questions and more are raised by this installation that depicts the growing prevalence of intolerance and hate nationwide by graphically illustrating the 939 “hate groups” currently active in the United States as identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center. A professor of art at Birmingham-Southern College, Cole earned his B.S. and M.A. from Ball State University and his M.F.A. from Florida State University.

Show and Tell by Butch Anthony

Jan. 22-Feb. 19
Opening Reception 6 p.m.

Butch Anthony is an artist not easily defined. He collects bizarre objects and transforms them into strangely beautiful art for one of America’s favorite roadside attractions, his “Museum of Wonder” in Seale, Ala. His hand-built home was featured in the New York Times and is built from stones and the timber of an old cotton mill, elegantly decorated with Anthony's own artwork. Anthony’s artistic spirit sees him apply his talents to a number of different modes and mediums, and he calls his specific genre of work “intertwangelism”—an -ism of his own creation.
