Acclaimed Georgia artist featured at The Bascom

Written by 

art bascomThe work of Linda Anderson, a prolific artist whose pieces depict her life in rural North Georgia, will be on display from April 20 through July 28, at The Bascom in Highlands.

 

A reception for the exhibit, “A Never Ending Stream: The Art of Linda Anderson,” will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, April 20. Anderson will speak at 6 p.m.

Born in Georgia in 1941, Anderson and her four siblings had a family life that was poor in money but rich in experiences. They shared a close community and church ties, along with a natural creative spirit. Art critic Catherine Fox called her work “keenly observed and wonderfully imagined.” Georgia Public Television named her “one of the foremost living memory painters, one of a dying breed of rural folk artists.”

The Bascom is open year-round, Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. 

Art exhibitions at The Bascom are free and open to the public.

It was my first time ever playing it, and first time actually hearing about the sport.
