Westobou Gallery opened in downtown Augusta in 2015 and, since then, has hosted 12 exhibitions highlighting the work of 52 artists. More than 7,000 people have visited the white-box gallery during that time to marvel at the work of national, regional and local artiststs including Jowita Wyszomirska (pronounced Yo-veeta Veesha- mueska), Yuken Teruya, and Paul Vincent.
A collaboration between Westobou and Augusta University’s Pamplin College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, Westobou Gallery is designed as a contemporary venue for a wide variety of exhibitions both during the annual Westobou Festival and throughout the year and offers curated exhibitions by emerging and mid-career contemporary and experimental artists. SEEDS, an exhibition of small works by local and regional artists chosen by a guest juror, is a much-anticipated show that happens at the end of each year. This year’s Festival exhibition on display September 7 - October 27, 2018, features Michi Meko, curated by Shannon Morris, Mary S. Byrd Gallery Director at Augusta University.
The Gallery is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday and by appointment on Saturdays.
