About this event:
Un Tejido de Nuestras Culturas: Art and Community in Argentina is a student international art exhibition inspired by study-abroad experiences in Argentina. This exhibition includes work by Armstrong students and faculty, Georgia College students, as well as works by our Argentinean host artists.
Armstrong senior bachelor of fine arts candidate, Olivia Stusak, who originally participated in the 2012 Argentina study abroad trip returned again this Summer, explaining that “meeting and working with the native Artisans is an experience I will never forget. It has changed my life forever. We never think about our everyday luxuries, for example hot water and a hardwood floor. These people have nothing but yet they will give you everything they have, invite you into their home, and treat you like family.”
Partnering with Georgia College art professor Valerie Aranda, Armstrong’s Rachel Green, professor of art, says she coordinates this collaborative effort so that “students and artists from the local area invest in service projects with their Argentine counterparts to build communities and use the visual arts as a pathway for exchanging ideas and developing understanding.”
This exhibit is open through September 26th in Armstrong's Fine Arts Gallery.
Gallery exhibition hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays
Admission to the exhibition and to the gallery is free of charge.
