ABOUT Within State Lines II
To further MOCA GA's mission to support contemporary artists from the entire state of Georgia, Director, Annette Cone-Skelton traveled to four cities: Alpharetta, Athens, Augusta, & Savannah, in order to curate an exhibition of artists from those cities, most have never shown at MOCA GA. A number of these artists were recommended by arts leaders in their communities, including Bill Eiland at The Georgia Museum of Art in Athens; Kevin Grogan at the Morris Museum of Art in Augusta; and Steven High, at the Telfair Museum of Art in Savannah.

The scenes depicted are captured as he says, “like aiming my camera at inner perceptions.”
