"OCAF Members' art exhibit opens"
2000-09-01 until 2000-10-21
Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation
Watkinsville, GA, USA United States of America

Beginning September 1st, more than ninety pieces of contemporary fine art and crafts by members of the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation will be on display in the Main Gallery of the 1902 OCAF Art Center, 34 School Street. Art work on display by local artists run the gamut from paintings and drawings, prints, photographs, sculpture, pottery, fiber art, glass, and jewelry.

Over forty artists are represented in this diverse annual exhibition. Most of the artists have more than one piece on exhibit. There is a total of ninety-seven pieces of art in the show. Audrone Kirschner, Visual Arts Coordinator for this exhibit, said the exhibit is one of the largest members' exhibits we have had to date. It is very exciting to see so many new artists who have joined OCAF in the past several months exhibiting their art. This exhibit really showcases the quality of the art being produced by artists in the Oconee/Athens area, she added.

Kirschner, who has coordinated a number of visual art exhibits at OCAF, said, The artists are responsible for selecting up to three pieces of recent and best work for submission and most of the art is for sale. This is a fun show working with our own artists members and they want to exhibit their best art, stated Kirschner.

An opening reception is scheduled for Saturday evening, September 9, starting at 7:00 p.m. The public is invited. Refreshments will be served. The exhibition will extend through October 21. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The Gallery is closed on Sundays, however, special tours and visits during off-hours may be arranged. Information on the exhibit may be obtained by calling 706-769-4565 or E-mail arts@ocaf.com. Additional information on OCAF is available on the OCAF Web site at www.ocaf.com.
