The Hinesville Area Arts Council will host an art exhibit for November called “Now and Then.” It’s by local artist Amanda Cox and will feature some of her photography and jewelry work.
The show will open with a free community reception from 5:30-7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 6, at the HAAC’s gallery in downtown Hinesville.
Cox is a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design and has been taking photos since she was 11. She learned to develop black and white photos during her eighth-grade shop class.
“Many of my photographs have an ethereal quality, giving the viewer the idea that they are looking at a different time, a different space than this reality,” Cox said. “I try to truly capture the soul of my subject, whether it is portrait photography or photos of places or things.”
Cox has lived near the Georgia coast for most of her life and believes that the images she captures are her way of preserving her memories of the coastal area for future generations.
The gallery is at 102 Commerce St. For more information, go to www.hinesvillearts.com or find the Hinesville Area Arts Council on Facebook.
