Lyndon House Arts Center Presents "Boundless" Exhibition

Boundless final

The Lyndon House Arts Center announces the opening of Boundless, an exhibition featuring installation based works by five local artists who explore common materials in unusual ways. The exhibition opens Tuesday, September 8, 2020 and is on view through Tuesday, January 12, 2021.

Using found metal scrap, Don Chambers encourages the natural process of rusting, Chambers incorporates this rust into paintings and drawings, adding “rust” to his list of media.  A long-time Athens resident, Don Chambers is well known as a local musician and artist.

Derek Faust’s assemblages utilize collected road debris such as broken glass and displaced car parts resulting in sculpture with multiple underlying metaphors. Faust, who earned his MFA from Georgia State University, is the Art Studio Manager & Academic Professional at the University of Georgia’s Lamar Dodd School of Art.

Alex McClay is a graduate student in the Printmaking and Book Arts MFA program at UGA’s Lamar Dodd School of Art.  McClay utilizes a variety of unusual materials, such as emergency blankets, surveyor’s tape, boundary marking flags, and hot pink mason line, to explore various aspects of communication.

Katherine McCullough’s paintings have been in several Juried Exhibitions since she returned to Athens after earning her MFA from Washington University in Saint Louis. Her abstract images, created with a skilled hand and a designer’s eye for color, evoke a sense of open space.

Paula Reynaldi creates organic shapes from masking tape. Both the forms, resembling honeycombs, and the material are familiar. But the scale and the presentation are novel and innovative. The Arts Center has enjoyed working with Reynaldi as our teaching artist for youth classes.
