“PRAXIS” Opening Reception

Now that the wave of student exit shows has ebbed, it’s time for instructors to take the spotlight. “PRAXIS,” on display through July 15, showcases works by over 20 local artists who teach as part-time or adjunct professors at UGA—Art Rosenbaum, Stanley Bermudez, Eric Marty, Jeremy Hughes and Erin McIntosh among them. The exhibit will be the final curatorial project of Jeffrey Whittle as LDSOA’s Gallery Director, who plans to continue teaching courses in painting and drawing at UGA and concentrate on his own studio practice. “Praxis implies a commitment to something visceral, meditative and possibly transcendent,” Whittle says. “They represent some of the best of humanity in my view: complete dedication to their artistic practice and to their calling as educators.” The opening reception will be held from 5–7 p.m. and is free.
