    Modern Masters from the Giuliano Ceseri Collection

    19th- and 20th-century works on paper by masters of the medium

  2. Belleek Porcelain from the Collection of Linda N. Beard

    Belleek Porcelain from the Collection of Linda N. Beard

    This periodically rotating exhibition of Belleek porcelain comprises masterworks from the comprehensive and noted collection of Linda N. Beard. The roots of Belleek porcelain production lay in the lands of John Caldwell Bloomfield, who in 1849 had a geologic survey of his property in the village of Belleek, County Fermanagh, in what would later become Northern Ireland, that revealed rich deposits of minerals.

  3. Permanent Collection

    Permanent Collection

    Thirteen galleries house a large portion of the Georgia Museum of Art's permanent collection, including many of the 100 American paintings that made up Alfred Heber Holbrook's founding gift. Eight of these recently received a major facelift, with new arrangements, paint colors and wall text to explain and educate.

Studio Workshop: Drawing

6:30 – 8:30 pm

Join Athens-based artist and educator Brian Hitselberger for a four-part series of drawing courses that serves as an introduction to techniques and materials. Both enthusiastic beginners and more seasoned practitioners are welcome. Topics to be covered include contour, value, simplification and detail, drawing on-the-fly and more focused, detailed methods of mark-making. All sessions will use the museum's collection as source material, including its archives and many works not regularly on display. Participants will be introduced to brush and ink washes, ink pen, colored pencil and hard and soft graphite. The cost of the course is a $15 materials fee, which will cover all necessary supplies for the four sessions (September 7, 14, 21 and 28).

This program is full; call 706.542.8863 or email callan@uga.edu to be placed on the waiting list.
