Christina Berkshire, Administration Manager for the Greater Augusta Arts Council and coordinator for the Municipal Building Gallery, describes the collection of work as an “exploration of scenes and subject matter that are familiar to us, in both abstract and representational styles. For each piece that is representational in nature, there is another, complementary, piece that is stylized or abstract that shares similar themes, colors, or textures.”
The Summer Exhibition will be on display until the end of August. The Municipal Building Gallery is open Monday-Friday, 8:30-5pm.
