Art Around Athens (and Beyond)

The Railroad Arts District blog has already rounded up a good bit of what's going on this weekend in the arts, including an opening of work by the kids at Chase Street Elementary that will be going on display at White Tiger and the opening of Trace Gallery, which is pretty exciting!

Out in Watkinsville, at the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation, there's an opening reception tonight (Friday, March 5) from 6 to 9 p.m. for the exhibition "Cattywampus," which features the printmaking art of UGA faculty and graduate students Andy Burkitt, Helen Farmer, Melissa Harshman, An Pham, Jon Swindler and Grace Zuniga. The exhibition runs through March 26, and while you're there, you can check out the exhibition for Youth Art Month drawn from Oconee County schools (also up through March 26).

This week's Flagpole lists the following event, about which we know no more than appears here, but it sounds interesting: Mar. 6: Call for location 9 a.m. 706-255-8528, Rose Creeks Clean-Up (Antioch Church Road): Artist Melissa Steele will document the clean-up of Rose Creek and Little Rose Creek as part of her art exhibit "Me'chanted." Breakfast and shuttle from Antioch Church provided. RSVP if you want your biscuits and coffee.

Saturday evening, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Morton Theatre in downtown Athens, there will be an opening reception for "Refusés," a salon of works not included in the Lyndon House Arts Center's 35th Juried exhibition. The exhibition runs through April 19.

Finally, Sunday afternoon, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., is an opening reception for an exhibition of Claire Clements' paintings at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia. Claire's process, cut paintings, involves cutting mixed media painting on paper, and the Athens Banner-Herald ran a great story on her this past week.
