The Fugitive Art Center presents Terra Inverta an exhibition by Georgia Artists Leslie Snipes and Mike Wsol.

Leslie Snipes received her MFA from the University of Georgia, in Athens in 2000. She describes her work as an appreciation of the profound order of the natural world through its self-editing necessity, its complex connections through macro and micro levels of life, and its purity in form and purpose. Recently her work has been exhibited in Atlanta, Texas, and North Carolina. Her work has been featured in New American Paintings and is included in the Drawing Center’s Viewing Program in New York.

Mike Wsol, Utilitarian Pattern, 2001, mixed media

Mike Wsol is currently an MFA degree candidate at the University of Georgia. He sees his work as metaphoric interpretations of the systems of development and growth that make up the contemporary American landscape. He cites his experiences in the contrasting environments of rural Illinois and the Southside of Chicago as the origins of his work. Wsol has exhibited work in Georgia, Chicago, and Indiana.
