Lamar Baker (1908-1994): Selected Works on Paper  - One of the many important artists to work in Columbus, Lamar Baker is best known for his vivid, frequently surrealist, depictions of Southern life. An Atlanta native, Baker moved to New York in 1935 to work and study, returning to Georgia to spend summers with family in Waverly Hall. During his years in New York, Southern life and scenery remained the focus of his art. In 1942, he won a Julius Rosenwald Fund fellowship that enabled him to travel through Mississippi and Louisiana. In August 1951, Baker settled near Columbus with his new wife, working for the Litho-Krome Company and teaching art classes.

St. EOM’s Pasaquan: Past, Present & Future  - Eddie Owens Martin often said that his visionary art site Pasaquan was “where the past and the present and the future and everything else comes together.” Guest curated by Columbus State University (CSU) faculty and students, this exhibition offers an introduction to Pasaquan in Marion County, Georgia, and the work of Martin, who dubbed himself St. EOM, while also providing an in-depth analysis of the theme “past, present, and future.” An array of St. EOM’s work in diverse media ranging from works on paper, to jewelry, to large concrete busts, will be examined aesthetically and symbolically. Both St. EOM’s beautifully distinct style and the practical and utilitarian nature of his art will be on display. This exhibition and related programming will serve as a kick-off for the reopening of Pasaquan after its two-year restoration by the Kohler Foundation and subsequent stewardship by CSU.
