Allied Arts presents pieces from permanent collection

MILLEDGEVILLE — Allied Arts is extending an invitation to the public to view the exhibit “Selections from Allied Arts Permanent Collection.”  The collection will be on display at the Marlor House now through Friday Sept. 20, according to a press release. 

Although the permanent collection contains over 150 pieces of artwork, the exhibit will only feature thirty-two pieces.

“We have the collection up about every other year and choose different pieces to highlight,” said executive director Randy Cannon. 

The collection features artwork by local, regional, and nationally recognized artists. Pieces range from drawings, sculptures, paintings, quilted pieces, 3 dimensional artwork, pottery, and photographs.  New additions to the collection include an artist signed print titled “Benton” by Thomas Hart Benton and an untitled photograph by Genie Hargrove.  Other artists included in the collection are Stan Strickland, Cookie Noel, and Sterling Everett.

“Cookie has a piece that is made entirely of scraps of boys' underwear. School kids always get a kick out of seeing it and it's always a fun thing to watch the expression on people's faces when they realize what material was used to create the piece,” said Cannon. 

The exhibit is also a reflection of the legacy that some artists have left behind.

“Several of the pieces in the collection are by artists who are no longer with us but have left their talent and their legacy in their art for everyone to always enjoy,” said Cannon. 

Cannon extends the invitation to view the exhibit not only to the public but to school groups as well.

“We invite any group that's interested in an interesting and informative tour of the exhibit to contact us and set up an appointment. This collection is a good one to generate dialogue about art and provide those who are unfamiliar with the styles of art with some new vocabulary,” he said.
