StoryCorps Comes to Athens

Sep 17, 2018

To sign up for the Athens StoryCorps recordings:




On August 25th WUGA will celebrate the very diverse work of conceptual artist, ideationist, and product and graphic designer Michael Oliveri, an Associate Professor at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at UGA.

He’s the founder of the school’s ArtX program, where students meld creativity with technical experimentation in a wide array of forms. He holds an M.F.A. (in New Genre studies) from UCLA and his B.F.A. from the San Francisco Art Institute, where he studied sculpture.

Artist in Residence for June: Eleanor Davis

May 29, 2018

On June 16th, WUGA is celebrating local cartoonist and illustrator Eleanor Davis, whose colorful and distinctive illustrations often appear in the New York Times and in The New Yorker. Last year NPR included Eleanor’s book You & a Bike & a Road in their list of best books of 2017. An earlier book of her comics, called How to be Happy, was included in NPR’s reader poll last year of the top 100 graphic and comic novels.

Artist : Noah James Saunders

In May, WUGA is celebrating the fine and distinctive work of Noah James Saunders, a sculptor who makes phenomenal three-dimensional wire portraits that cast shadows that seem to bring his figures to life. He also makes lovely jewelry from brass, copper and sterling silver. His work has been on display at OCAF’s juried shows, in New York, and at Aurum Studios and other fine galleries in the southeast and midwest.

People attending the Artists in Residence event, on May 19th, will see his home and studio, where he creates such splendid pieces.
