As you know, the Arts Center is closed until further notice. However, we have an incredible Juried Show to share. We are moving the 45th online. Each day (see menu to the left) in the morning hours we will post a new work on display in the galleries with a short story.
Hi! I’m Jason Machen @studio2107 and I’ve been photographing beauty since age 3. My piece, “Descendant of Slaves,” pigment photograph from Kodachrome slide shot in 1986, printed in 2020, won the Award of Honor of Dr. Nix. When I was a small child in rural Georgia Bodie and his wife Roxie lived in a dirt floor shack next door and I would go visit them. I understood that he was the son of slaves. My favorite Athens thing is the availability to access free art and culture; when my children were young we were very poor but we came to the Georgia Museum of Art and other cultural places almost every Sunday.
