FlowThe Lived Experience of Flow State: A Phenomenological Art Collaboration between UWG ARrt and Psychology

Lilian Garcia-Roig2021 Blackwell Prize in Painting Exhibition
Fall 2021 Blackwell Prize in Painting Exhibition
Cuban-born and Texas-raised, Lilian Garcia-Roig paints mainly large-scale landscape-themed works from observation, which she often completes in a single day.
Artists share their responses and reflections on the universal, familiar, and timely themes of Home. Originally conceived prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and devastating tornado in Newnan, the exhibition theme Home was intended to celebrate Newnan's identity as the "City of Homes." In our new reality, Home is not only a space for habitation and shelter but also for memory and identity in all of their rich cultural, historical, political, and socioeconomic contexts.
