Upcoming WUGA Events

The next Artists in Residence event — on Saturday, August 15th — is at the home of a dynamic duo of artists: Claire and Bob Clements.
Claire is a marvelous, award-winning painter. Her distinctive pieces sometimes include cut paper — often with a botanical theme. She started a plein air group in town that is now practically an institution!
Robert is a professor emeritus at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at UGA, where he won awards for his teaching and research. He created the big sculpture at the public library; other sculptures are in Atlanta — and California and Colorado. He is also a fine painter. Many of his works depict local landscapes — for example, fields of canola or flowering peach trees.
Both artists have had their work displayed on billboards around town as part of a local Art-in-the-Air program.
Visitors to the Clements' home at 155 Bar H Court will see the couple’s charming home that Bob designed.
Claire’s lovely paintings (and some of Bob’s) fill her studio, and his sculptures are scattered around the yard and throughout the house. He made some of their furniture, too. Attendees will see how the couple organizes the tools and frames and canvasses and other materials that two busy and accomplished artists need.

The event at their home is on Saturday, August 15th, from 3 to 5pm.

Marti’s at Midday generously provides the fresh and bountiful hors d’oeuvres, and Shiraz supplies fine wine.

The event is $10 for Friends of WUGA and $15 for others. (Friends memberships are $30 or more annually.)
