Deanna Jaugstetter and Pam Thompson

Exhibit through December 27, 2019
ART EXHIBITION

Deanna Jaugstetter was raised in a creative environment and her desire to study painting came naturally.She began studying oil and watercolor painting in the mid 70s in Atlanta. Deanna captures a wide variety of subjects, still life, landscape, animals, using her own photographic references, live models and still life set ups. Read her interview with VoyageATL

Pam Thompson began her artistic efforts in 2008. Her first classes, through the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art, were en plein air. Her first paintings were of nature, and that continues to be her primary focus, both landscape and still life. Many of her works are representational, often based on photos she has taken but she also enjoys the freedom of expressionistic works and occasional abstracts.

Opening Reception, Linda Hardy

Thursday, January 9, 2020
5:00 pm - 7:00 PM
Exhibit through February 28, 2020
ART EXHIBITION

Dr. Linda Hardy grew up in Columbia, Missouri, moving to Augusta in 1979 to complete her residency training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the Medical College of Georgia. She maintained a medical practice in Augusta, both at MCG and in private practice, until her retirement.

Always an admirer of art, after retirement she began taking lessons, in oil, from David Mascaro. Currently she is a member of the Mascaro Art Group, a co-op of painters many of whom had also been students of Mr. Mascaro. She now works nearly exclusively in acrylics, which better fit her loose, rapid style of painting. She has participated in exhibits and juried art competitions across the CSRA, and is represented locally by Art on Broad in Augusta.

This exhibit consists primarily of landscapes painted from photographs, memory, or imagination of the Augusta area, particularly the Savannah River, and the Georgia and South Carolina lowcountry and salt marshes. Dr. Hardy paints from a place of serenity and appreciation of the beauty and wisdom of nature, and hopes that these feelings are transmitted to the viewer.

Dr. Hardy resides in Augusta with her husband, Dr. Arlie Fiveash, two dogs, a cat and a bunny

He is also a professional drummer and finds many scenes on his travels for new works.

5:00 - 7:00 PM
Exhibit through August 30, 2019
ART EXHIBITION

Jeff began painting in earnest in 2013. He likes sculptural forms and decided that the easiest way for them to "exist" is on canvas. Most of Jeff's paintings involve characters in ironic or poignant or humorous situations. He wants people to feel good, or even chuckle, when viewing his work. Linda Tilden, Jeff's sister-in-law, always had a love for art and worked on set designs for stage productions, costume design, art workshops, painting murals, art therapy as well as giving private lessons. She has studied under several professional artists in oil, pastel and acrylic painting and is active in several art groups. Linda has participated in juried shows and has won several awards.

CULTURAL CENTER EVENT

The Ten Commandments is a 1923 American silent religious epic film produced and directed by Cecil B. DeMille. Written by Jeanie MacPherson, the film is divided into two parts: a prologue recreating the biblical story of the Exodus and a modern story concerning two brothers and their respective views of the Ten Commandments. Lauded for its "immense and stupendous" scenes, use of Technicolor process 2, and parting of the Red Sea sequence, the expensive film proved to be a box-office hit upon release. It is the first in DeMille's biblical trilogy, followed by The King of Kings (1927) and The Sign of the Cross (1932).

Americana at its best! Watch one of the silent movie era's classic films while enjoying concessions and live music for the film by celebrated theatre organist Ron Carter. This is his 17th season of making Silent Movie Night at Sacred Heart a much-anticipated event in Augusta.

Advance tickets are recommended as this event sells out each year - 706.826.4700
