The Georgia Center for Continuing Education Conference Center and Hotel will present Boundaries: Landscapes and Identity The Art of Roberta Griffin and Bosco Meneses. The exhibition, free and open to the public, is on display until July 31 in the Hill Atrium.
Roberta Griffin retired as director of galleries and is associate professor of art emerita at Kennesaw State University, where she developed the first art major, and created and taught art history and studio art courses.
“The paintings and photographs in this exhibition are a reflection of time spent in Mexico over the past 16 years, especially five summers in Oaxaca teaching in my university’s study-abroad program,” Griffin said.
Bosco Meneses, born in Recife, Brazil, has exhibited in solo and group shows in galleries and museums in the U.S. and Brazil. He is an active member in the local artistic community in Atlanta.
“My technique and painting style mix abstract, minimalism and figuration. I’ve come to believe that my art unifies people and has an outreach that goes beyond the lines of race, gender, sexual preferences, class, economic stratum, political persuasions and geographical boundaries,” said Menses. “Its theme is contemporary, informed by my exposure to the media… it has a narrative of its own, which leaves my viewers enthused about its meaning.”
