Exhibit delves into life transformations

A Georgia College & State University art major gets elemental as she focuses on change and development.

"Transformation using Fire, Water and Air"— an exhibit of the work of Holly Nussbaum Williams, a senior art major at GCSU – will be on display from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Apr. 16-20 at Blackbridge Hall Art Gallery.

The artist will host a gallery talk at 12:30 p.m. and a reception is scheduled from 5-7 p.m. on opening day at MAGE Art Gallery at the Wooten House on Clarke Street. Both events are free and open to the public.

Williams, who uses the creative moniker 'holly.Just holly,' is fundamentally drawn to the idea that life is change. To exist is to be transformed. Clay is malleable and subject to transformation and she will draw upon this metaphor by creating spheres of clay and subjecting them to fundamental catalysts: fire, water and air.

In exploring ideas of identity and transformation, Williams has refrained from embracing any single belief system and draws form Taoism, Buddhism and The Alchemy of the Hermetics. As part of this installation, everyone is invited to come and make a sphere of their own and add it to the multitude.

Blackbridge Hall Art Gallery is located on South Clarke Street across from the Old Governor's Mansion. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information contact the GCSU Department of Art at (478) 445-4572.
