Often it is through the personal nature of our process and concepts that viewers come to know work as ours. Those images can be delicate, bold, gentle, aggressive, simple, complicated, intuitive, logical, obtuse or explicit, 2D or 3D. The message and concept becomes enhanced and individualized by how we decide to create that image, using chosen material and media to strengthen our story, our message, our image.
The Women’s Caucus for Art of Georgia is delighted to be invited to show our work at Cornerstone Bank Art Gallery.
Bringing together a cohesive, engaging exhibit is an art unto itself. We are pleased to announce Shawn Vinson, Gallery Director will be curating our WCAGA exhibit. Mr. Vinson will have final say on all work exhibited.
