Current Exhibition


Local artists who are members of the Visual Artists Alliance of LaGrange (VAAL) will exhibit their work at the LaGrange Art Museum August 11 –September 29.

“The annual exhibit at LaGrange Art Museum is the highlight of our year. Whether it is in the professional setting of our local art museum or because awards are presented, artists always bring their highest quality work. And their talented efforts never fail to impress us,” said VAAL President Jennifer Emery.

The artwork is available for purchase. “The VAAL exhibit is a great time for you to support local artists by purchasing art for your home or office,” said Jenni Sampson, Board President. “The local artists’ work is nothing short of exceptional.” The art museum receives a portion of the sales to support its art education efforts.

Columbus artist Julianna Wells was the juror for the exhibition. She completed her MFA degree at the New York Academy of Art with a focus in drawing and painting. She holds a BFA from Columbus State University and has received various scholarships and accolades throughout her time as an emerging artist. Her paintings depict the landscape of Southeastern America, and the narratives of the people and animals that inhabit the region.
