From Tuesday, April 3 through Sunday, April 29, 2018, the CCBC Gallery will proudly host an exhibition of nine large-scale paintings created for Art Decko: a public art project organized by the Athens Area Arts Council (AAAC) that promotes creativity in unexpected places. Artists were tasked with creating an original design to be painted onto a 4’x8’ wood panel. The panels will be permanently displayed in the College Avenue Parking Deck (downtown Athens) following the exhibition at Creature Comforts.
Join us at the brewery on Sunday, April 8 for a special showcase of visual art and local music in celebration of the Art Decko project! Visitors can peruse a small artists market featuring the original work of the Art Decko artists while listening to local bands Elf Power, Forbidden Waves, and Jeremy Kiran Fernandes. Bands will play at the top of the hour, starting at 2:15pm. Local food truck Holy Crepe will set up on site with both sweet and savory options for sale.
From over 100 submissions, the following nine artists were selected for the Art Decko project:
