GMOA in Flagpole Magazine

GMOA's upcoming exhibition, "American Letterpress: The Art of Hatch Show Print" is featured today in Flagpole Magazine. This exhibition illustrates the fascinating fusion of art with popular culture and music history. Featuring the work of one of the nation’s oldest and continuously printing shops—Nashville, Tennessee’s Hatch Show Print—it highlights the uniquely American posters produced to advertise everything from vaudeville shows, state fairs and stock car races to the Grand Ole Opry, Elvis Presley and Herbie Hancock. This exhibition opens this Saturday, August 27 and will run through November 6.

An image of Pierre Daura is also featured today on the magazine's calendar page. Established at the Georgia Museum of Art in 2002 with a gift from Martha Randolph Daura in honor of her father, the Pierre Daura Center contains a collection of paintings, prints, drawings and sculptures by the Catalan-American artist Pierre Daura (1896–1976), who co-founded the important artists’ group Cercle et CarrĂ©.
