The Cup Show artists

Works by Margaret Parsons Andrews

Margaret Parsons Andrews was one of the driving forces behind the formation of The Hudgens Center for the Arts over thirty years ago. The Education Department at the art center is named in her honor. We are pleased to host this Exhibition to honor Margaret’s life and vision for the arts in Gwinnett.

 

Selected Works from the Permanent Collection

The Hudgens is fortunate to be the steward of a sizable collection of close to 150 works of art in varying mediums. We are pleased to present Selected Works from the Permanent Collection, on view in the Rowe Promenade on a continual basis.

 

About Carr McCuiston & Signature:
Since 1997 Carr has owned and operated Signature, originally known as The Signature Shop & Gallery, in Atlanta, GA. Carr worked in the gallery off and on spending nearly 20 years in tutelage of founder Blanche Reeves. Carr completed her Bachelor Fine of Arts degree at Auburn University and then went on to study for a Master’s Degree in Art Education at Georgia State University. She has juried numerous national craft shows including the artist selection panel for the American Craft Council and was honored by the ACC as a Style Maker in 2013.

The gallery, entering its 53rd year, shows a broad range of distinctive objects made by hand that are thoughtful, innovative and reflect a passion for materials and for individuality. Signature promotes the importance of craft practice and fosters the appreciation of the handmade and of the individual maker. They strive to develop a broader appreciation of handmade one-off pieces and expand the reach and understanding of contemporary studio art and its intrinsic relationship with design.
