Join us on the second Friday in September for the opening reception of "Garden Hues" featuring prints but UGA professor and department chair, Melissa Harsham. The exhibit will be on display September 8-29.
Melissa Harsham Artist Statement:
My latest work involves the combination of printmaking, installation, crochet, and sewing. This is a new direction in my work inspired by 19th-century Danish painter Johan Laurentz Jensen and 17th century Flemish painter Daniel Seghers. Both of these artists explore flowers as their main subject matter for their paintings. Their use of luscious and ornate flower garlands and still life compositions inspire my use of more simplified flower prints and crochet flowers. This work provides an outlet for my love of pattern, newfound interest in sewing, and explorations in color.
