Treasure Inland

A Group Exhibition of Map Inspired Works 

by Christina Berksire, Amy Callan, Jeremy Cohen, Nikolas Bryan-Dunaway and Heather René Dunaway

 

Treasure Inland is an exhibition of graphic and illustrative map-inspired artworks that feature locations throughout the Augusta River Region, from Mistletoe State Park to Downtown Augusta, GA. This showcase features works by local artists Christina Berkshire, Amy Callan, Jeremy Cohen, Nikolas Bryan-Dunaway and Heather René Dunaway, who also cultivated and curated this event. 

Each map reflects a place, view or business in and around Augusta. The treasure is our city, not a buried, tangible object. This showcase highlights the beauty and adventure that our area holds and is meant to inspire locals and visitors to get out and explore. Prints of each map were provided by our sponsor, Quality Printing. A print of each map can be purchased through Augusta & Co. for $25.00 each. In the gallery both originals and prints have been framed for display and are for sale. For questions on how to purchase, please call Augusta & Co. at (706) 724-4067 during business hours or visit www.visitaugusta.com.

 

This exhibition will be up in the Augusta & Co. Gallery, located at 1010 Broad St. in downtown Augusta, GA from July 5th – September 29th with an artist’s reception held on August 5th from 4:00 – 6:00 PM. Please join us in supporting our local arts.
