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 C Olivia Carlisle @occarlisle and my mother and maternal grandmother provided gardens of fresh vegetables and beautiful “howy" flowers surrounding our Athens childhood home. My love of plants and insects blossomed, providing my inspiration to capture God’s magnificent natural beauty through photography, drawing and painting. I am awed by the botanical’s intricate details, especially by this Hibiscus…the wonder of the pollination and the life cycle processes. The opportunity to return to my Athens roots, complete a degree in Scientific Illustration at the University of Georgia, appreciating the UGA’s vast research capabilities and the diverse creativity in this vibrant city makes me love this town. What a Joy!
