The Classic Center

Classic Gallery I: Wild Thing

  • Features animals, plants, and people intermingling in the new fall exhibition. Margo Roesnbaum's horses wander into her living rooms, and her house cats grow to an enormous scale. Angels hover, and tigers roar in Shelby Little's mythological compositions. Carolyn Suzanne Schew's psychedelic desert-scapes and Amanda Burk's black and white printed gardens celebrate the wildness of our natural world. 

Classic Gallery II: Love.Craft Athens

  • Features the work of Melanie Jackson, Hannah Jo, Norman Austin Junior, and Brittany Wortham. Love. Craft Athens’ empowers and educates differently-abled adults.
