VALDOSTA, GA – No pressure. Artist Craig Hawkins drew a series of drawings live in front of a congregation of observers during Sunday sermons. As he explained in a recent article in The Valdosta Daily Times, he made the charcoal drawings to accompany the sermons of Pastor Ken Webb of Christ’s Fellowship Church. The 44 drawings are the basis of “Emmaus Road” on exhibit at Price-Campbell Foundation Gallery and Margaret Mittiga Gallery at the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts. Hawkins has been a cornerstone of the Valdosta art scene for several years as both a working artist and as part of the art faculty at Valdosta State University. He has also combined his art and faith in numerous works and exhibits. Shows run through Feb. 22. [More]
