“A Cut Above” features more than 25 wood carvings and constructions drawn from the artworks Gordon W. Bailey has donated to the High over the past six years. The exhibition places particular focus on Almon, a Georgia artist whose carving tools and teaching tablets — on view alongside his wood bas reliefs — give intimate insight into his process. Other key works featured in the exhibition include Pierce’s reverent tribute to Henry “Hank” Aaron and his wife, Billye. Also on view are expressive life-size animals carved by O. L. Samuels and Raymond Coins and superb works by Charles Butler, Ralph Griffin, James Harold Jennings, W. C. Owens and Sulton Rogers.
