"What Is Near" examines the ways in which artists have explored issues of identity and memory in the context of home. Home can be a place laden with emotion and memory and is often inextricably tied to a sense of identity. In this exhibition, the work of five Southern artists in the permanent collection of the High Museum approach topics of representation through the framework of home. The artworks include Beth Lilly’s study of memories and dreams, Angela West’s return to a familiar landscape and family members, Paula Chamlee’s depictions of her childhood home after decades away, Sheila Pree Bright’s dispelling of stereotypes through depictions of living spaces, and Sarah Hobbs’s manufactured rooms filled with the anxieties of the human experience.
