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

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.
