Current Exhibits at the AHCNA


Augusta Photo Festival "Photo Walk Finds" and Clay Artists of the Southeast Exhibit
August 31 - September 27


From August 31 to September 27 the AHCNA brings two great exhibits to North Augusta.  There will be a collection of photographs from the Augusta Photography Festival group entitled "Photo Walk Finds".  These are images taken during their many "walks" to various locations from festivals past (2008 - 2016).  You will certainly find some familiar and beautiful scenes of our region.  In this competition each photographer can enter up to two pieces for display in the exhibition.  Judges will award first through third prizes ($100, $50, $25) and an overall Best of Show grand prize of $200 to be awarded at the opening reception Sept. 7, 5 - 7pm.


Winners of the APF "Photo Walk Finds"

Best in Show - "King Mill" by Deborah Gamba
1st Place - "Closed for Business" by Carol Lee
2nd Place - "Stalled Kiss" by Addie Strozier
3rd Place - "Welcome Home" by Yolanda Santiago White
Honorable Mentions - "Invisible Man" by Thomas Robertson and "Transformation" by Carol Haff


Also on display in the main gallery will be "Anything Goes", the CASE (Clay Artists of the Southeast) exhibit of some wonderful ceramic pieces. Each year the CASE artists produce an exhibit for the Arts and Heritage Center where all entries must fit a theme that is determined by CASE members. This year's theme is “Anything Goes.” 


CASE is a group of clay artists who come together each month to discuss future shows and clay techniques. Established in 2006, their group consists of hand-builders as well as those who use the potter's wheel.  Pit fires and Raku gatherings are other activities that the group enjoys.


Both this exhibit and the photos will be on view at the Center through September 27.
