  • We are pleased to announce this summer's debut of the ATHICA Emerges program, for which artists Tyrus Lytton and Anthony Wislar were chosen from among a dozen entries. The ATHICA Emerges program was created for the sole purpose of offering local emerging artists opportunities to exhibit their work here. This is also the debut exhibition at ATHICA of co-curators Rebecca Brantley and Brigette Thomas, Art History graduate students at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia (UGA) and ATHICA Board members.
    Wislar and Lytton share a similar aesthetic, combining abstraction with figuration in works whose characters occupy an alternate, fantastical world. While Wislar's solitary or sparsely grouped figures exist on clean expanses of white or raw canvas, Lytton's figures—some human, some hybrid creatures—are usually composed directly on the raw wood of found objects such as discarded bureau drawers, with only a trace of landscape or decorative motif to accompany them.
