The newly formed Athens Art Share Group welcomes all members of WCAGA and potential members (visitors) to attend their Studio Visits. Their next visit is at Vivian Liddell’s studio in Athens on Sunday, Nov. 13 from 3:00-5:00.
Her studio address is #3D, 160 Tracy St., Athens GA.
The format for their meetings is focused on the individual artist studio they are visiting.  They see this as an opportunity for the artist to have a focused viewing and response from members and artists in the community… A time for feedback and a constructive/ supportive critique.  We are also sharing books about art, brainstorming for future exhibition opportunities, and just general “art talk”! They plan to meet once a month on Sunday afternoons.
Please join the Athens Art Share Group!
Stacy Koffman is coordinating this group.  If you have any questions, please email stacy.koffman@ung.edu
Two works by Lucy Julia Hale, "American Powder Room: Killer Decor" and "His Last Summer at Home" were published in the October issue of "The Hand: A Magazine for Reproduction Based Art."   https://thehandmagazine.net/issue-14-purchase-and-artist-links/

WCAGA ART+ACTIVISM artists Kolbrun Sigurdardottir and Flora Rosefsky exhibited their work at an AA ACTS Art Exhibition held at Ahavath Achim Synagogue in Atlanta on  October 30, 2016 in conjunction with a program to raise awareness and education about Human and Sex Trafficking issues. A particular focus of the event, with a panel of four speakers,  was to raise more awareness about an amendment noted as the Safe Harbor initiative to help rehabilitate rescued victims in the State of Georgia.  Kolbrun’s photograph of a young child was selected by the AA ACTS committee to be used on their invitation and promotional social media, giving credit to both the artist and the WCAGA ART+ACTIVISM’s Artist Registry which now includes over 55 WCAGA artist members.  Flora’s work, STOP Series, also was selected to be part of this exhibition. The AA ACTS effort works closely with a large and diverse  local  interfaith community and will continue throughout the year with other events, where the visual arts can again be an integral and meaningful  addition to their educational and proactive programs.
