The Lyndon House Arts Center and Foundation is thrilled to announce the first Lyndon House Artists Edition Series print.
“Resistance” by David Hale, is a limited edition of 100 signed works designed in Hale’s exuberant signature line and color. Gorgeously illustrating the natural balance between beauty and severity, the print will be available for purchase for $50.00 on Saturday, June 3rd from 4- 6pm. Purchases based on availability will continue through out Hale’s exhibit, Beloved Land. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the print edition goes supporting the programs at the Lyndon House Arts Center and is made possible through the Lyndon House Arts Foundation.
Beloved Land goes on view May 27 and runs through July 22. Every aspect of the Beloved Land series echoes David Hale’s love for Athens, Georgia. Hale draws his influence for these multi-media works from the Creek (or Muscogee) Indians, who called this land, between the forks of the Oconee Rivers, Ikunu- tchaka, the Beloved Land. Hale says “It was more than a special place to them, it was Sacred, and they gave their lives to protect it and the creatures that reside upon it.”
The preview event, on June 3, will be an all-day extravaganza, kicking-off with the Patterns in Nature Workshop from 1 – 3pm. Open to ages 12 and older(families are welcome), this drawing class, led by David Hale who will share how the knowledge of our local land and environmental concerns can shape our artistic vision. Registration is required.
At 3:00 pm, historian Steven Scurry will present a talk about Beloved Land.
At 4:00 pm, we will launch the limited edition and enjoy a gallery talk with David Hale.
