Artwork by 7 local artists is now on display in the gallery located inside the Augusta Richmond County Municipal Building in a group show named, “Fusion, A Celebration of Modalities.” Recently renamed “The City Gallery,” the gallery space at the Municipal Building hosts exhibitions programmed by the Greater Augusta Arts Council. The artwork featured in “Fusion” highlights several unique artistic mediums – paper-cutting, 3-dimensional clay on canvas, photography, and more. Local artist Nico Gozal curated the show, and selected the work to illustrate the variety of methods artists use to create art.
