The Lyndon House Arts Center hosts the exhibition Raucous. The opening reception is on Thursday, June 6, 6:00-8:00 pm. The exhibition will be on view through August 3, 2019. Gallery hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon-9:00 p.m., and Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Raucous, features work by Kelly Boehmer, Jaime Bull, Christina Foard, Vivian Liddell, and Erin McIntosh. These five women are all working to explode power structures with color and fiber.
Kelly Boehmer, a Professor of Foundation Studies at Savannah College of Art and Design, creates hand-sewn sculptures from reused materials. Colorful fabrics and flowers add a playful quality to her otherwise somewhat grotesque “Puppy” sculpture.
Jaime Bull, adjunct professor at the University of Georgia (UGA), also creates hand-sewn sculptures out of re-purposed materials. Her enormous torsos, created from vintage bathing suits, are stuffed with plastic bags.
Christina Foard, an established painter currently enrolled as an MFA degree candidate at UGA, explores the tabletop as a metaphor/arena for examining relationships, family, and politics.
Vivian Liddell’s current body of work explores the male nude deriving compositions from art history’s greats like DeKooning and Rubens. Vivian teaches at the University of North Georgia (UNG).
Erin McIntosh, Assistant professor at UNG, has created new paintings for Raucous. A prolific artist guided by intuition, Erin’s media varies from watercolor to oils, and her subject matter often include biomorphic forms and imagery inspired by the complexity of nature.
Exhibiting artist, Kelly Boehmer, will be leading a gallery talk about her work and process on August 3 at 2:00 pm.
All exhibits are free and open to the public. Children must be accompanied by an adult. For more information, please call 706-613-3623 or visit accgov.com/exhibits
