Join Brenau Galleries on Thursday, Jan. 18, in Sellars Gallery for a special evening celebrating the opening of “More than Meets the Eye: Works by Eric Forstmann.”
Forstmann elevates common household objects and settings to a higher status in his engaging paintings. The works in this exhibition focus on boxes, shelves and stacks of objects, all of which prove there’s more to a traditional still life than meets the eye. For more information, call 770-534-6263 or visit galleries.brenau.edu.
The exhibition dates are Thursday, Jan. 18 to Thursday, March 15.

Brenau Galleries is now selling notecard sets featuring early American artwork from the Brenau University Permanent Art Collection. Each set contains eight distinct designs and costs only $10.70 (including tax) per package. These card sets make great gifts and are a wonderful way to show off our impressive art collection. Notecards can be purchased at the front desk in Sellars Gallery at the Gainesville historic campus via check or credit card.
The notecards are a collaborative project between the Brenau University Galleries and the Brenau University Gallery Docent Program. The docent program began in 2013 as the result of a community Wisdom Project initiative. Since then, the group of volunteers has grown and become a vital part of gallery operations.
All proceeds from sales of this project will benefit the Brenau University Galleries and its educational programming.
