The Reeves House Visual Arts Center is showcasing its first art exhibit, [Re]constructing Home, now through July 4.
The exhibit examines the meaning of home and how individuals define themselves in relation to others. [Re]constructing Home features artwork from 20 local, regional, and national artists. The exhibit includes three Cherokee County artists: Kim Bates, Karen Beedle, and Chase King are from Woodstock.
The exhibit showcases three different themes. The first is [Re]Calling, which showcases home as defined by memories and their inherent, unreliability. The second theme is [Re]Coloring, which showcases home as defined by the ways in which one’s present self can reimagine or recolor the narratives of the past. The third theme is [Re]Moving, which showcases home as defined by a space that one no longer occupies or possess, whether voluntarily or forced.
The Reeves House gallery and café are open 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday. The visual arts center is located at 734 Reeves St. in Downtown Woodstock. For more information, call 678-494-4251 or visit elmstreetarts.org. There is no admission fee to view the gallery.
