MOCA GA is pleased to present Guess You Had To Be There, a solo exhibition of new work by Shara Hughes. This exhibition completes the 2012/2013 Working Artist Project (WAP) which also included solo exhibitions by Jiha Moon and Katherine Taylor, all of which were selected by guest juror Julie Rodrigues Widholm, Pamela Alper Associate Curator, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Guess You Had To Be There debuts paintings that Shara has created and completed over the last year of WAP. Shara is an Atlanta-based artist who studied at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in New York and the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence. Her paintings combine elements of landscape, still life, and figuration to dizzying effects. She has had solo exhibitions around the world including at the American Contemporary and Rivington Arms in New York, Museum 52 in London, and Mikael Anderson in Copenhagen and Berlin.

Working Artist Project (WAP)

WAP is an awards program to support established visual artists of merit who reside in the¬†metropolitan Atlanta area. This initiative provides an unparalleled level of support for individual artists, expands the Museum’s mission, and promotes Atlanta as a city where artists can live, work, and thrive. As with past years, a guest juror will select three visual artists to receive the Award. Representing our city’s best and brightest; these artists will be supported with an exhibition, promotion, a studio assistant, and a major stipend to create work over the course of the year. This program is supported in large by a grant from The Charles Loridans Foundation with additional funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.¬†
