MAGallery is excited to introduce Georgia-based artist Jodie Hutchens in her intensely personal show titled Search Me & Know My Heart
Leaving behind a quarter century career in television design and animation including two decades at CNN, Ms. Hutchens now embraces life within the fine arts.
Her current body of work has migrated from representational compositions to broadly personal yet abstract themes that celebrate the use of line as an element of expression and artistry.
In her own words, "these paintings are reflective of a struggle for a more meaningful expression as I call out for the beauty of imperfection."
Meet Georgia-based artist Jodie Hutchens on Friday, September 10th, from 5 - 7 PM and view her exciting and very personal show.
The reception is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served and musical entertainment will be provided by Jami and Terry Braley. We hope to see you there!
MAGallery and the Madison Artists Guild is located at 125 W. Jefferson St., Madison GA 30650.

The public is invited to view the Spring installation of COMMUNITY/CONNECTION 2021 created by the Crossroads students who participated in Art for Life, a donor-funded outreach program of the Madison Artists Guild. Students at the Alternative Education Program/Crossroads School learned basic photography skills and created a body of artistic work on the themes of community and connection. Using cell phones, they created, curated and installed a street-art photography exhibition onto an exterior wall of the Crossroads School building. As the students learned photography skills, elements of design, artistic composition, planning and execution, they also discovered how their life stories and experiences are a form of art that can be shared with the public.
When a local newspaper featured the Art for Life program, it caught Sen. Jones attention. In March 2021, MAG received notice that the Georgia Senate had formally recognized the Art for Life program with the adoption of Senate Resolution 185. Congratulations to the teachers, staff, students and donors! We hope you enjoy the art installation.
