ATHENS, GA.- In collaboration with the Georgia Review, the Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia presents the exhibition “Storytelling: The Georgia Review’s 70th Anniversary Art Retrospective” from November 5, 2016, to January 29, 2017.

The Georgia Review, founded at the University of Georgia in 1947, is a quarterly journal of arts and letters that publishes short stories, general-interest essays, poems, reviews and visual art. A celebration of the wide-ranging roster of visual artists whose work the Review has reproduced, the works in this retrospective reflect the powerful storytelling ability of visual art.

“Storytelling” includes 25 works by 12 artists whose work the Review has published. Photographers such as Tamas Dezso, Kael Alford and Carl Bower, all committed to documenting social and political realities in countries like Romania, Iraq and Colombia, have works displayed next to sculptors Patti Warashina and Vanessa German. Other artists include Benny Andrews, Celeste Rapone, Bianca Stone, Kara Walker and Masao Yamamoto.

While the exhibition includes artists who work all over the world, artists Nina Barnes and Margaret Morrison are both residents of Athens, Georgia. True to the Review’s mission to facilitate partnerships in the community, their inclusion represents the rich local art of Athens. Morrison is a tenured professor of drawing and painting at UGA’s Lamar Dodd School of Art, and Barnes relocated to Athens in 2002 from Norway.

Jenny Gropp, managing editor at the Review and co-curator of this exhibition, has a background in creative writing and English literature. She is a widely published writer whose work has can be found in Best New Poets, American Letters & Commentary, Denver Quarterly and Columbia: A Journal of Literature and Art, among others.

Gropp said she is “thrilled to be presenting this particular gathering of artists.”

Annette Hatton, former managing editor of the Review, is Gropp’s co-curator, and Sarah Kate Gillespie, the museum’s curator of American art, served as in-house curator.
