Georgia College Museum presents

Susan Grabel
January 29 – May 10, 2014

In 1990, Susan Grabel was involved with a Staten Island based organization working with homeless people. Faces of Alienation reflects how Susan viewed the community’s response to homelessness. Her clay portrait reliefs boxed in by grates and screens and wood slats show:

“How we are all boxed in by our prejudices. How we are imprisoned from the inside by our own defense and biases and from the outside social stereotypes. How our communities are not communities. How we profess concern for our children’s futures but not our children.”

Susan’s intent is to present work that is multi-layered in content as well as material as each portrait portrays a sense of individualism.  In her own words, “They are emotional and not stylized. They are boxed in, defended and trapped.”

Also featured in this exhibition, are works from her latest series And What About the Children?, which focuses on the child’s place within an America that is “marred by poverty, homelessness, hunger and the lack of affordable health care.”


A Part of the Landscape---Photographs by Carl Martin
January 29 – May 10, 2014

This exhibition is a selection from three different bodies of work by fine art photographer Carl Martin Men of Georgia (1991-1992), Downtowners (1993) and Toward Salvage. Similarly, each series reveals the citizens who lived in and around Athens, GA in the years following the Carl’s move to Athens with his family. He recalls being both “struck and relieved by moving from the hyper culture conscious New York, particularly of how you looked and how it was perceived and what it projected, to a culture that seemed less so.”

This collection of work is presented under the title A Part of the Landscape---Photographs by Carl Martin in reference to the subjects extraordinary quality of the subjects presented in the Athens of today, which bills itself as a progressive Southern city named #1 College Music Scene in America by Rolling Stone; it also boast of a vibrant contemporary art scene, a downtown with fashionable and funky shops as well as several culinary hotspots. Its eclecticism however, is not limited to its night life but is evident in Carl’s subjects many of whom still live in and around Athens.
