Encounters: Ted Whisenhunt

Encounters: Ted Whisenhunt Collage

July 29 – September 23, 2018

Huth, Boeing, Salmon and Haws Galleries

The latest exhibition in this long-standing showcase for outstanding regional contemporary art focuses on the folk-infused mixed media works of this North Georgia artist. Rural Appalachia and life in the early 20th century is the inspiration for his recent body of work. The mixed media sculptures also explore movement and viewer interaction by incorporating hand cranked mechanical systems that bring the pieces to life. A native of Alabama, Whisenhunt holds a BA from Birmingham-Southern College with an MA from Florida State University. He was the Associate Professor of Art and Chair of Fine and Performing Arts at Judson College from 1998 – 2009 before moving to Young Harris College in Georgia where he currently holds the same title. In his spare time Whisenhunt plays with the old time string band Cornbread & The Butterbeans. Organized by HMA.
