Admission: Free

Allied Arts invites you to an installation of artworks titled "Resonant Overlay and Other Possibilities" by artist Craig Coleman.

With many art exhibitions to his credit, Coleman is excited to exhibit in Milledgeville. "When I create an artwork, I often start out wanting to explore a process or a tool to see how it can be repurposed for another use or outcome. This exploration becomes a jumping off point that allows possibilities other than the known uses for an object to be discovered." As a photographer, he is interested in the aesthetic qualities of light. Projected images are of interest to him because of the way that they can transform a space or object when overlaid on a surface. "The metaphor of layering meanings and juxtaposing ideas is something I enjoy doing with projected imagery."

Oct 10, 2015 - Oct 10, 2015

Times: 3 - 8 p.m.
