Poetry of Earth: Works by Sally Bradley and Stephen Hawks

Published May 19, 2015


Poetry of Earth highlights the work of two Columbus Georgia artists whose work stands at the intersection of art and nature.


Sally Bradley paints landscape views of the Chattahoochee Valley, and FSU Art MFA Alum Stephen Hawks produces ceramic works using Georgia clay. The works included in Poetry of Earth will serve as inspiration for poems that will accompany the work on display in the exhibition.

Sally Bradley’s work deals with construction and deconstruction, creating landscapes from layers of collaged paper and acrylic paint. The work develops with multiple and simultaneous perspectives of the subject matter, and it raises questions about human intervention into the environment. Stephen Hawks, who was the potter in residence at Historic Westville for almost 20 years, uses local clay and inventive glazing techniques. He has perfected his skill in throwing all sizes and shapes of traditional pottery forms, but recently he has begun creating abstract sculptural pieces that are investigations into the nature of form and the relationships of objects in space.

 The exhibition will take place May 31 – October 11, 2015 at the Yarbrough Gallery in The Columbus Museum @ 1251 Wynnton Road Columbus, GA 31906.
The reception for this exhibition will take place on June 11th from 6:00 to 8:00pm.
