Vault Home Logo

Please join us in inaugurating the Vault Gallery. Home invites artists to share their responses and reflections on the universal, familiar, and timely theme of Home.

Originally conceived prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and devastating tornado, the exhibition theme Home was intended to celebrate Newnan’s identity as the “City of Homes,” allowing artists to share their responses. Having lived through the pandemic, Home obviously resonates in significant and novel ways. Our world has been transformed. While we were required to shelter in place, our personal spaces became both refuge and cage, office and school.

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. This exhibition, then, treats the theme of Home as physical space, idealized concept, and metaphor.
