Charles Keeling Lassiter
April 15th – June 6th, 2019
This exhibit will feature an eccentric selection of original works by artist Charles Keeling Lassiter (1926-2005). He was a formally trained artist who is also considered an outsider because of his style and the mediums he often chose to work in. His work has been often described as raw and primitive that has a bold and powerful effect. He has participated in numerous exhibitions in various Galleries and Museums in the United States, Switzerland and France, Including the Museum of Modern Art in 1956 and the Musée de L’Art Brut in 1986. This body of work is on loan from the private collection of Stan Kaplan, Boca Raton, Florida.
The Square Restaurant: 25 1st St SE, Moultrie, GA 31768
April 2nd – June 3rd, 2019
Since moving to Moultrie in 1982, Joann has been able to make wonderful friends and work at a variety of places including working at two retail shops that her husband and herself owned. The music store kept her surrounded with artistic folks and the antique store taught her about display — composition, color and eye appeal. She has loved all the opportunities, but nothing has been as fun or satisfying as drawing and painting.
“Hours go by and I lose myself — I could do this forever! Everyday I learn more about this craft/hobby/obsession. Working in charcoal and acrylics are what I enjoy most. As long as I can hold a piece of charcoal, I know that I will be doing this!”
Paintings by Amanda Holt
May 2nd – June 10th
Amanda Holt is a self-taught artist hailing from Murray, Kentucky who has resided in Moultrie, Ga for over two decades. Holt is a middle school special education teacher, and has spent many years of her adult life caring for and enriching the lives of her students. She is known for going above and beyond for those she has taught in the past as well as the students currently occupying her classroom. After losing her youngest daughter Mary Holt and her best friend Madison (who was very much like a daughter to Holt as well) in a car accident in September of 2012, she turned to painting. Holt described painting during that time of her life a way to calm her mind. She says that is still a motive that holds true for her today. Holt’s colorful body of work often depicts family member, friends, and animals that are reminiscent of the impressionist era. Her work will be on view in the Traverse Gallery until June 10th.

“Painting is for me, a search for beauty. I am especially intrigued by the anatomical power and vitality of horses. Their sheer intensity can be seen through the rendering of light as it reflects from a sweat drenched coat or the amber gaze of a horse at day break. Conveying the vibrations of nature is my goal, and it is my hope that the viewer’s alliance with the painting brings to art its truest beauty.”- Ann Goble
