The exhibitions are by invitation and are designed to align with current Georgetown Arts and Culture Programming. To be considered for an invitation by the Georgetown Arts and Culture Board, local artists may submit their resume and portfolio to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Past City Hall exhibitions include:
Carol Light, April – June 2019
“The City Hall lobby also features a rotating quarterly art exhibit sponsored by the Georgetown Arts and Culture Board. The first selection features seven pieces by Carol Light. Her art has been exhibited internationally and won numerous awards. She has been a favorite local artist for many years and her works permanently hang in prominent locations around town. The City Council recognized Ms. Light’s contributions to arts and culture in Georgetown in November 2016.” Ellen Greeney, Williamson County Sun
Gary Anderson, July – September 2019
Compelled to explore discarded, anachronistic, and misplaced items, Gary Anderson’s work endeavors to offer objects an afterlife within other forms. By performing repetitive and rhythmic artistic tasks, he creates families of related shapes and textures, resulting in the discovery of new sets, groups, and configurations. Individual reincarnated works materialize in their newly assigned place, beckoning us to contemplate and reflect.
Norma Clark, October – December 2019
Clark is an abstract artist whose paintings are expressive, intuitive, and spontaneous. Her abstractions stem from various sources and document discoveries made during her investigations. Process is a key part of Clark’s work, and the objective is to create paintings that are visually engaging and contain ambiguities of space, color, form, and chaos. Her paintings are personal and are reflections of a range of internal emotions and complexities of life.
