Coastal Georgia Senior citizens well know there was a time, a very long time, when each Coastal Georgia town had its own unique character.
It’s no secret that we’re turning into one big Wal-Mart, McDonald’s, Starbucks complex like the rest of the country.
Sometimes it takes an outsider to remind us what is unique and beautiful in our own communities.
The SCAD Museum of Art is featuring a collection of Southern portraits from French photographer Pierre Gonnord.
Active Coastal Empire seniors looking for a memorable road trip are encouraged to visit this exhibit.
It is open now through January 26 of 2014.
The exhibit was put together in partnership with the Consulate General of France in Atlanta, Georgia.
The exhibit presents a new series of photographs by French photographer Pierre Gonnord from time he spent in the American South.
In recognition of the 50th anniversary of the death of Nobel Prize-winning author William Faulkner, the artist conducted a three-month residency in Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi.
Through the faces and landscapes encountered, “Portraying the South” captures a glimpse into the soul of the Deep South, offering a timeless and riveting portrayal of the American Southeast.
