Signature Lectures: Kristin Leachman, contemporary artist

September 22, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

“Longleaf Lines and the Fifty Forests Project”

Location: Georgia Museum of Art, M. Smith Griffith Auditorium

Leachman’s paintings are noted for repositioning abstraction, figuration and geometry, making seamless connections between the subliminal and sublime. Her current project, “Fifty Forests,” explores both pattern and symbolism in the growth formations of trees throughout America’s 50 states, including most recently the old-growth longleaf forests of Georgia. Leachman also designed “Senzeni Na?” (“What Have We Done?”), an Academy Award nominee for Best Live Action Short Film in 1990. Her work is featured in the collection of the National Gallery of Art and an oral history interview with Leachman is included in the Smithsonian Archives of American Art in Washington, D.C. The exhibition “Longleaf Lines,” part two of Leachman’s “Fifty Forests” project, will be on display at the Georgia Museum of Art through February 2023.
