MGC Art Exhibit

MGC Art Exhibit

Michael Marks’s exhibit “Fragments” recently opened at Middle Georgia College’s Peacock Gallery in Russell Hall. Marks gave a Gallery Talk to MGC students, faculty, and friends on January 24.

“Fragments” is interested in how past works of art are investigated; for example, through digital means, such as zooming in on individual paint chips, said Charlie Agnew, an associate professor of art at MGC and the Gallery Director of Peacock Gallery, a Middle Georgia College news release says. 

Marks is also interested in why paintings last and what happens to them over the years.

“Fragments” is also concerned in how the meaning of works changes as the work is altered over time. But Marks doesn’t promise to have all the answers. “I don’t have the final say,” he said. “‘Fragments’ is a process; it’s not explicit, but more ambiguous.”
