July 9, 2015

Over 50 exceptional works created by local artisans will be showcased in a specially-curated exhibit beginning July 16 at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.

The new exhibit, “The Best of Tiftarea Artisans,” will open to the public with a reception at 6 p.m. on July 16 at the Museum Gallery. Dave’s Bread and Coffee House will host the reception. The event is open to the public at no charge.

Museum assistant director and curator Polly Huff said over 70 entries vied for a spot in this new exhibit. Entries were narrowed down by a panel of jurors. Featured works include paintings, drawings, photography, multi-media pieces, basketry, woodturning, and even artisanal handmade knives.

This new exhibit is presented in tandem with Museum partner group Tiftarea Artisans. Cash prizes totaling $475 provided by Tiftarea Artisans will be distributed to the top three entries during the exhibit’s opening reception. Following opening night, admission to this exhibit will be included in daily Museum admission and will be free with a current GMA Season Pass. GMA admission and season passes can be purchased at the Country Store.

“The Best of Tiftarea Artisans” exhibit will remain on display at the Gallery until Nov. 3. Most of the pieces in the exhibit are available for purchase through the curatorial office.
