The Fine Arts Gallery is located in Fine Arts Hall on the Armstrong Campus. The gallery has about 10 exhibitions per academic year, including faculty and student shows, visiting artist exhibitions, and the annual Georgia U.S. 1st Congressional District Juried High School Exhibition.

The L-shaped gallery features sheetrock walls with plywood backing at 9 feet 5 inches tall (8 feet 7 inches to the bottom of lighting track fixtures), maple flooring and a dropped ceiling with low-voltage track lighting. There is approximately 1,257 square feet of floor space, 132 linear feet of wall hanging space and three 5-by-8 double-sided mobile wall systems that add 30 linear feet of wall space and 240 square feet of wall space.

Alan Harvey: Vertical Horizons

Reception: December 15, 5-6:30 p.m.

Alan Harvey is a biologist and photographer with an experimental approach to picture-making. Manipulating his smartphone camera, Harvey photographs vertical panoramas rather than the usual horizontal panoramas, depicting the scene to his front then over his head and back, in one fluid gesture. The result is not simply a novel approach to photography, however, but a look at how ecosystems transform over time: as a biologist, Harvey finds areas where two different ecosystems collide and then captures that boundary in panoramic view from where he stands, with one ecology to his front and one to his back, captured all at once in one image. The result is a visually stunning suite of large-scale, interactive photographs that depict the relations of nature in situations both entangled with and free of human influence.
