From a Distance


“Coming Up for Air” by Lillie Morris

Get a close-up look at the abstract work of two Georgia artists.

Sacred Heart Cultural Center will display the artwork of Columbia County artist Lillie Morris and Roxane Hollosi of Atlanta through June 30 in an exhibit called “From a Distance.”

Best known for her acrylic, collage and mixed media paintings, Morris occasionally works in cold wax and encaustic. She specializes in abstract art that reveals a love of texture, color and experimentation.

Richly layered and with her own vocabulary of gestural marks and linear elements, Morris’ artwork conveys the emotional impact of her source of inspiration whether it is the landscape, music, poetry or a deep personal experience.

“I Hear the Feet of Rain Approaching 2” by Roxane Hollosi

She is inspired by the landscape, waterways and rich history of the Piedmont region of Georgia. She also has an interest in the music, literature and landscape of Ireland, and her work has been influenced by her many travels there.

Hollosi is a multi-disciplinary artist who creates 2D and 3D works. The foundation of her work is an exploration of the nature in and around her and the energies it emanates.

Originally from the Midwest, Hollosi was influenced by the Native American peoples living near her in the prairie towns of southwest Minnesota. Her color palette often reflects the indigenous culture she experienced in her formative years.

Private viewings can be scheduled, or Sacred Heart is open 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Visitors are asked to knock for admittance, wear a mask indoors, sanitize hands upon entry and refrain from entering if any symptoms of illness are present.
