A long-time writer in the Boston area, she directed the well-known Chautauqua Writers’ Center from 2008 to 2017.

MotteThomas_GlynnVisualArts

MOTTE THOMAS EXHIBIT: SEPTEMBER 11, 2018 – OCTOBER 12, 2018

Glynn Visual Arts is proud to present Wax Poetic, an exhibition of encaustic works by Motte Thomas. A culmination of five years of the artist’s work, this will be first time this collection has been shown on the east coast.

The work reveals natural and botanical shapes using colors and forms that are at the same time reminiscent of and incongruent with nature. Thomas uses a pointillist style and layering technique in his work which begs to be viewed both up close and at a distance. Multiple layers of gently woven strokes are built upon each other using properties such as color, texture and material composition to envelope and draw in the viewer. The translucent colors and deep textures construct the familiar organic shapes often observed in nature. The flowing lines, shapes and swirls are built up into three-dimensional forms creating a stunning visual poetry.

Thomas creates a dream-like lyricism and surreal quality which belies the subconscious reflection in these other worldly, yet grounded works. His works have been exhibited in Colorado, Houston, TX, Santé Fe, NM, Atlanta and Brunswick, GA. All works are for sale through Glynn Visual Arts. Opening Reception: Thursday, September 13, 2018.

Glynn Visual Arts: 106 Island Drive, St. Simons Island, GA 31522. For more info, call (912) 638-8770.

August 2017 Events in the Golden Isles

Friday, July 28th, 2017

SAMBASSAMBAS by Raymond Dumas III Exhibit: Monday, July 24th to Monday, August 21st, 2017

Glynn Visual Arts welcomes home a Golden Isles native son, Raymond Dumas III known to local friends and family as “Rusty”. GVA is proud to present “SAMBAS”, a retrospective exhibition with painting works by Raymond Dumas III from 1991 – 2017. Raymond studied Art at Cambridge University in England, the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI, Cooper Union in New York and at the School of Visual Arts, in New York where he earned his Bachelors of Fine Arts in 1995. He later continued his studies to earn a Masters of Fine Arts at Yale University School of Art in 1997. Since then, Raymond has worked extensively in the film, television, print, and advertising industries as a production illustrator and designer. He is a scholar and historian of Nigerian Afrobeat music. He has published articles in Wax Poetics Magazine on Afrobeat music, and Published Photographs in Purple-Fashion Magazine. He has lived in the United States, Mexico and Spain. “My painting impulses come like heat lightning in the St. Simons Island night. They are clouds that burst with incandescent light, revealing a pattern, before closing, only to explode moments later in a new form. The exhibition is called “Sambas” because my art comes as a musical light and rhythm.”, said Dumas. “Some of Dumas’ paintings in this collection range in styles from the quiet and still color fields of Mark Rothko, some include energetic, lines and shapes in an almost grafitti-esque style, others are reminiscent of lines and dots on a map, with repetition suggesting a rhythm of place and convergence.”, said Susan Ryles, Executive Director, Glynn Visual Arts. For more info, call 912-638-8770 or click here.

A fun & informative community preparedness rally to be held at Mary Ross Waterfront Park Brunswick, Ga. This exciting and important event will be free to the entire community. It will focus on disaster awareness and preparedness with the spotlight on hurricane and coastal flooding. It is also in conjunction with National Safe Boating Week. The Prep Rally will be held this summer right before hurricane season begins. Learn how to pack an evacuation bag for the whole family…including your pets! Find out where to go and how to return after an evacuation.

We have all heard folks say they are not sure what they should do or where they should go in case an evacuation is ordered for our coastal region. This fun and unique, fair like, tent event is going to directly address those questions and fears that everyone has, specifically focusing on our immediate coastal area putting minds at ease. We believe that after attending this first of its kind outreach, local folks will better understand how to establish an individual and family disaster plan for communication and evacuation of loved ones in an orderly manner.
