Elements: Expressions in Wood, Metal, and Stone

Sept. 17th – Nov. 7th, 2020

Steffen Thomas was a master of all materials, but his roots as an artist began as a sculptor. In this exhibition, we will honor Steffen’s legacy by displaying some of his three-dimensional art alongside works by contemporary regional sculptors in wood, metal and stone.  A complementary series of virtual events such as panel discussions and artist demonstrations will be announced on the museum’s website and social media.

Featuring:

Len Brown • Sally Wansboro Eppstein • Roxane Hollosi • Barbara Mann • Larry Millard • Noah James Saunders • Ronald Sullivan • Carol Veliotis • Jeffrey Waller • Kelsey Wishik • Ryan James Woods

Educational Programs

A Day at STMA

A Day at STMA is a field trip program that serves K-12 students in public schools, private schools, homeschools, and extracurricular clubs across Georgia. These programs are provided at little to no cost to the schools or students.

It begins with a guided tour of the museum and the current special exhibition, which includes the history of Steffen Thomas’s life and group discussions about the themes. After the tour, they are led in an art activity that changes every year and teaches them about a specific artistic technique used by Steffen Thomas, such as sculpture, mosaics, painting, and more.

College Connections

College Connections serves fine arts and humanities majors by offering individual internships, class projects, programs, and exhibition opportunities. The program has collaborated with students from Georgia Regents University, Augusta University, University of North Georgia, and the University of Georgia.
