• Opening Reception Three Paths by Don Cooper. The Madison-Morgan Cultural Center will host an opening reception 6-8 PM on Friday, April 25, 2014, for the new exhibit Three Paths by Atlanta artist Don Cooper.  According to Cooper, art-making at times is like a journey, one that can take you on many paths.  The three paths in this exhibit are the results of Cooper’s travels, studies, observations, and experimentation inspired by Asian travel and study from a fifteen-year period, 1995-2010.  This experience led to the discovery and exploration of groups of symbols rendered in oil, acrylic, gold leaf, stone and paper mache. Three Paths is scheduled to be on display through August 17, 2014, and is sponsored by the Willie and Ruth Still Cox, Marilyn Cox Elliott and Suzanne Cox Hartness Fund.
