Steel Yard Frieze by Elizabeth Barton

Bright City: Textiles by Wini McQueen

This exhibition will feature recent works by textile artist, educator, and curator Winne McQueen. A long-time resident and beloved artist of Macon, Georgia, McQueen has received national recognition for her work. Her subject matter encompasses a large range from botanicals and literacy to race and biography but her “commitment to the arts always focuses on the manipulation of color” as her ultimate challenge and mode of exploration. This exhibition features stories that are a retrospective of her life experience of 77 years in the form of artist books, photo fabric art collages, and layered mixed media paintings in the contemporary genre.

Women of Watercolor

Watercolor by Barbara Schell

This exhibition will feature watercolor paintings by Pat Adams, Lori Hammer, Gail Karwoski, Diane Norman Powelson, Janet Rodekohr, Barbara Schell, and Mia York. The “Women of Watercolor” gather weekly at the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation to paint and provide critiques of the members’ work. They found each other through various watercolor workshops at OCAF and decided to gather to practice, learn from each other, hone their craft. A variety of styles and subject matter will be represented.
