May at the GALLERY: Steven Harrison brings a world of vast and varied experience to his visual art. From his career as a medical illustrator and Chairman of the Department of Medical Illustration at the Medical College of Georgia, to a PhD in Art from UGA in 2008, Steve continues to travel down an amazing diversity of creative paths. He writes
"Once you are familiar with the "rules and tools" of art and have the confidence to jump into the middle of your "pool of creativity", experience will reward you time and time again. Will you ever achieve perfection--no, at least I hope not. If you ever think you've achieved perfection, it's time to quit. I thought I had achieved perfection on one ocassion. Then my errors were pointed out to me. That's why I go back for more!" Come and see how this refreshing philosophy plays out in the work gracing our walls this month--and, meet him at a reception in his honor on Saturday, May 12th from 6-8.
