“Entangled” On Display Now at the Chamber of Commerce Gallery – Artwork by Colleen Beyer Stewart

The newest exhibition at the Chamber of Commerce Gallery is now on display through July. “Entangled” is made up of work by arts educator Colleen Beyer, which were part of her MFA final thesis project.

From – “Her work is influenced by nature, botanical forms and mark-making. The mid 20th century painter Philip Guston once stated that it is “the nakedness of drawing” to which he is attracted. Colleen also enjoys the “nakedness” of drawing, the raw marks and lines used to describe forms. Each piece begins as a charcoal drawing. She then builds layers of oil paint and carves back into them with her charcoal pencil.”

The Chamber of Commerce Gallery is located in the offices of the Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce at 1 Tenth St. Their hours are 8:30-5 Monday-Thursday and 9-3 on Fridays. All artwork is for sale, visit for purchasing information.
