Moultrie hosts international artists

April 2, 2008

Moultrie --  Artists from Mexico City and New York City are in Moultrie as part of an international artist's residency program.
For the next few days they'll interact with locals and the environment.

South Georgia's surroundings will inspire them to create new pieces of art. The Colquitt County Arts Center is hosting eleven artists from the U.S. and around the world.

They are participants in the Sandrabh Artist residency, with the aim of bringing contemporary art to places that aren't typically hotbeds of modern art.

Sarah Olson is from New York and says he was nearly brought to tears while visiting a local church, which inspired her to create a work of art.

The non profit artist initiative is supported by the Colquitt County Arts Center which is housing all the artists work.

Organizers say the abstract art, pictures, and other works by the artists will give locals a different look at the world around them.

The Colquitt County Chamber of Commerce Tourism committee gave the center a grant to bring the national and international artists that's drawing attention to Colquitt in a very artistic way.

Moultrie was chosen for the artist residency because it's similar to the small town in India where the program originated.

Anyone who wants to see the artists' work can do so on April sixth from Eleven AM to Twelve PM at the Colquitt County Arts Center.
