Senator Burke calls for local artists to submit artwork for potential display at the Capitol and the Governor’s Mansion

Sen. Dean Burke announced this week that the Office of the Governor, in partnership with Georgia Council for the Arts (GCA), is calling on local artists to submit artwork for “The Art of Georgia IV: Imaging Home; Landscapes” exhibition.

“This exhibition is a great way for local artists in participating counties to have their work represented around the Capitol,” said Sen. Burke. “This year’s exhibition seeks to capture the uniqueness and beauty of Georgia’s landscapes and our communities. I look forward to seeing the talent of our community displayed for all to appreciate.”

In collaboration with the Office of the Governor, GCA facilitates this rotating exhibit that seeks to capture the uniqueness of Georgia landscapes and communities as seen, explored and depicted by Georgia’s artists. The two-dimensional images cover a wide range of media that includes, but is not limited to, photography, paintings, works on paper and mixed media. 

Since 2012, Art of Georgia exhibits have displayed 354 works of art by 261 Georgia artists in the Office of the Governor at the state Capitol. The program has been expanded to include The Governor’s Mansion.
