New exhibition up in the hall

The Art of the Georgia Review, January 29 – April 29, 2010, Visual Arts Building, UGA Campus, 285 S. Jackson St.

When most people think of the Georgia Review, the award-winning quarterly journal published at the University of Georgia since 1947, they think of poetry, fiction and book reviews, all areas in which the magazine has been traditionally strong. This informal exhibition in the Visual Arts Building (285 S. Jackson St.) of the University of Georgia aims to show in a small space some of the breadth of visual art the Review has published. Tearsheets from the journal have been framed alongside two large screen prints by John Sokol that depict the authors Virginia Woolf (pictured above) and Samuel Beckett as made out of their own words. Other artists whose pages from the Review are on display include filmmaker and former UGA instructor James Herbert, oil painter Terry Rowlett, mixed-media artist Thomas Allen (who cuts out pop-up scenes from the covers of old books, then photographs them) and painters Margaret Morrison and Gaela Erwin. Back issues of the Review containing these works of art and more are available either online at or at the Georgia Review’s offices, which are also in the Visual Arts Building.
