Albany- Part of Albany Museum of Art's mission is to display the work and talent of South Georgians.

Starting Friday, the work of Mitch Mercer of Albany is on display. The collection, entitled "Colorful Figures," surround the viewer with vivid colors and provocative images.

The exhibit includes pieces which represent a 20-year study of painting the human form.

"The museum has started a new program called local color and local color is an opportunity for people who are in and around Southwest Georgia to showcase their talent here at the museum," said Aaron Berger, director of Albany's Museum of Art.

Parental guidance is recommended in viewing the exhibition due to nudity and adult situations of this showing. The exhibit will be on display until July 16th.
