Inflections: Three Voices

Works by Kaitlin Thurlow, Maria Canzano & Morgan Auten Smith

May 7 – June 15, 2024

Artist Reception and Gallery Talk on Thursday May 9, 6:00 pm

The Lyndon House Arts Center is pleased to announce Inflections: Three Voices featuring works by Kaitlin Thurlow, Maria Canzano & Morgan Auten Smith, on May 7, 2024.  This exhibition will be on view from May 7– June 15, 2024.  The artist reception is Thursday, May 9 at 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.

Inflections brings together three painters who create intimate worlds to enter and reflect upon. The diminutive scale of the works draws the viewer in for close investigation. Kaitlin Thurlow’s striped paintings hover on the edge between abstract landscapes and pure formalism. Of New England origin, Thurlow is currently working on a PhD in English at UGA, where she researches collaborations between the literary and visual arts. Maria Canzano’s loose, figurative gouache works capture the immediacy of everyday moments, rooted in a sense of place. Detroit-born, Canzano is a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art and currently resides in Athens, GA. The lush, layered paintings by Morgan Auten Smith play with the language of shape, color, light, and weight to express the push and pull of maintaining a creative life. She is a passionate elementary school art educator based in Gainesville, GA.

SURFACE: 2023 Juried Exhibition

SURFACE, ATHICA’s 2023 Juried Exhibition, features contemporary art in all media that explores or references SURFACE, a term that can apply to the literal surface of an artwork, an environment, an individual, or reference the act of becoming evident, breaking up from the watery depths, applying concrete, or bring something to our attention. #SURFACE is a noun and a verb, both transitive and in-, and sometimes an adjective, such as when someone might be unkindly described as being “surface.” SURFACE was juried by Clay Aldridge and Josiah Golson of Stove Works in Chattanooga, Tennessee, an arts space that has a very similar mission to ATHICA and to which we look with admiration.
