Mission

Conceived as an alternative art space, the Athens Institute for
Contemporary Art is dedicated to exhibiting challenging, provocative,
and innovative contemporary art in a non-commercial setting, solely for
the cultural enrichment of the Northeast Georgia community. Work may be
formally adventurous, such as conceptual objects and installations, or
politically or socially engaged, or both! Visual artists are encouraged
to create for the space specifically. Area writers, performance artists,
musicians and other creative people are invited to bring events of an
experimental nature to the space. As a non-profit, 501(c)(3) federally
tax-exempt art space, there is no pressure on artists for work to be
saleable.

Taking on the age old theme of love, Crafting Romance focuses on expressions of love, especially on their association with domestic and decorative arts. realms traditionally thought of as seperate and lesser enterprises than the fine arts- despite the legacy of over 30 years of feminist art practice. While this colorful collection of international and national works was produced in a wide variety of media- jewelry, video, drawing, installation, photography, sculpture and sticker art and more-it is bound together by its wit and relationship to craft.

ATHICA Emerges III introduces new works by three young local artists and one artist team. The curators selected these artists from over two dozen entries. Excitingly, this year's exhibit veers away from the painting and sculpture work of the first two years of ATHICA's local emerging artists showcase, with new media, photo-based works and conceptual practices predominating. The four projects include two that explore personal journeys, both virtual and actual, and two that use inventive ways of recording and representing personal experiences.

Almost daily we hear of another round of newspaper layoffs, another venerated publication on the brink of bankruptcy or another small town newspaper ceasing production altogether. In the digital age, while newspapers and incapable of competing with the web's low cost and efficency, fears of the death of print run rampant-despite boomers' clinging nostalgia for their morning paper over cereal.
