The 1st LaGrange Southeast Regional features an extraordinary, rich body of art work selected from over 450 works submitted by almost 15o artists representing the twelve-state Southeastern united States. It celebrates the rich legacy of talent within our region, provides its citizens access to current artistic practice, and offers artists exhibition opportunities and purchase possibilities.

The Art Museum collects and presents contemporary art by emerging and established artists with an emphasis on regional artists as well as outsider and folk artists from the lower Chattahoochee Trace: The Regional affords the LaGrange Art Museum a means for increasing its permanent holdings though Purchase Awards.

I finally had the chance to visit the Masur and see my work on the wall. It’s great to be included in a permanent collection with so many great artists. As a kid, I imagined that the only way my work would be under the same roof as Dali, Rodin, Motherwell, or Hirst was to get mega rich and form my own awesome collection. Of course, my wife made me take a picture:
