Housed within a historic train depot 10 miles from downtown Athens, the member-operated Farmington Depot Gallery is currently hosting a special exhibition to highlight the work of its three newest artists, Shelia Bradley, Elizabeth Ogletree and Marian Maxey Smith. The mosaics of Smith demonstrate an appreciation for both the natural and the spiritual worlds, incorporating found objects and colored glass into images of animals, flowers and angels. The works of recent textile design graduate and self-taught painter Ogletree explore themes of consciousness, mysticism and spirituality through ancient symbols and cosmic settings. Bradley’s collection of functional pottery—mugs, plates, teapots, bowls—is considerably colorful and also draws inspiration from flora like giant orange tiger lilies. The exhibit will remain on view through August, and the gallery is open Wednesday–Sunday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
