|October 2021: Blackwell Prize in Painting: Lilian Garcia-Roig
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. In addition to winning the Blackwell Prize, she is also a 2021 Guggenheim Fellow, one of the most prestigious fellowships worldwide. Garcia-Roig currently serves as Professor and Chair of the Department of Art at Florida State University, in Tallahassee.
|September 2021: Home
Artists share their responses and reflections on the universal, familiar, and timely themes of Home. Originally conceived prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and devasting 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. This exhibition treats the theme of Home as physical space, idealized concept, and metaphor.
