The latest exhibition in this long-standing showcase for outstanding regional contemporary art focuses on the folk-infused mixed media works of this North Georgia artist. Rural Appalachia and life in the early 20th century is the inspiration for his recent body of work. The mixed media sculptures also explore movement and viewer interaction by incorporating hand cranked mechanical systems that bring the pieces to life. A native of Alabama, Whisenhunt holds a BA from Birmingham-Southern College with an MA from Florida State University.
