The Museum of Arts and Sciences is pleased to announce that we are featuring works by Macon native Charles Ladson and several rising stars from regional Master of Fine Arts programs in a special exhibition entitled, Charles Ladson and 6 Emerging Artists. The exhibition will be on display at the Museum from April 12 through August 25, 2013.
The contemporary paintings of Ladson explore a wide spectrum of subjects, ranging from figures to landscapes — and always offer a starting point for individual interpretation and interesting conversation. Beasts and interiors coalesce forming curious situations and conveying stories open to interpretation.
In addition to being an exhibiting artist, Charles Ladson also serves as Guest Curator for the exhibition (click here to read more about Ladson).
