Cecile L.K. Martin closes fall 2009 exhibit season at Circle Gallery

Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia College of Environment & Design’s Circle Gallery will host Cecile L. K. Martin’s graphic media works, Forming Content, to close the fall 2009 exhibit season. The exhibit runs Nov. 4 – Dec. 11 and Martin will be in attendance for a gallery talk during the reception on Wednesday, Nov. 11, 4-6 p.m.

Martin has received national attention as both an artist and a designer. Before joining the UGA faculty, she taught design studios, design theory, life drawing, and drawing studios for the visual arts, architecture, and landscape architecture departments at Clemson University. She currently teaches studio courses in design and graphics in the College of Environment & Design.

Martin said that this latest exhibit “draws upon the constant reworking and reconfiguration of our lives. By reworking existing imagery into new configurations on paper, I allow for visually rich and intellectually ambiguous layers of meaning,” she said “With no preconceived concepts, the work is free to emerge as process and intuition dictate.”

Located in G14 Caldwell Hall, the Circle Gallery’s mission is to share exhibits that stimulate intellectual discourse in the college, the University of Georgia, and the greater community. The exhibits are created by students, faculty, alumni and visitors, bringing together diverse viewpoints on how design can shape our communities and our world. All exhibits are free and open to the public. Parking is available after 5 p.m. in the UGA lots on Lumpkin Street.

The College of Environment & Design is the only college of its type in the nation, housing programs in landscape architecture, historic preservation, environmental ethics, and environmental planning. CED’s large and diverse faculty, cutting-edge technology, and talented student body recently earned its bachelor’s and master’s of landscape architecture programs first and second national rankings, respectively, in the 2009 DesignIntelligence ranking of such programs.
