Juried by gallery director Charles Warnock, OCAF’s “Annual Members’ Exhibit” showcases a wide diversity of works created by the gallery’s members, ranging from paintings, drawings, ceramics, jewelry and more. In “Outward Bound,” on display in the Members Gallery, local artist Audrone Kirschner depicts invasive species of plants through various media, focusing both on their natural beauty and border-free, “outward bound” growth that threatens native wildlife. Kirschner, who studied architecture at Pratt Institute as well as painting at the Art Students League in NYC and at the Atlanta School of Art, is a long-time OCAF member and volunteer. Along with her husband, John, she was instrumental in designing and installing the OCAF Sculpture Garden, which is dedicated to the mothers of all artists. The reception is 6–8 p.m., and both exhibits will be on display through Friday, July 11. The gallery, which is located 10 miles from downtown Athens at 34 School Street in Watkinsville, is open Tuesday–Saturday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
