The Office of the Governor and Georgia Council for the Arts have chosen local artist and filmmaker Samone Norsworthy to have her artwork featured in the ongoing exhibit, The Art of Georgia: Celebrating Georgia's Landscapes and People.
The exhibit, which is up from May-November, showcases the current work of contemporary artists and hangs in the executive offices of the State Capitol.
The selected artwork will receive exposure on a state level to the wide variety of visitors who visit the state capitol including legislators, dignitaries and tourists. Sale of the artwork selected for exhibition will also be encouraged via a digital guide on the Georgia Council for the Arts website.
Norsworthy specializes in the watercolor, pen and acrylic mediums. Her artwork has been featured at the Hinesville Area Arts Council Gallery and in Savannah Magazine and other news media outlets.
Norsworthy is newly appointed to the Hinesville Area Arts Council Board of Directors. She is the owner of Wonder Worthy Productions, an entertainment-production company in Midway specializing in film, television and new media projects. Her film, “Ben & Ara” (2016), won an Africa Movie Academy Award for Best Diaspora Feature, the equivalent to an American Oscar Award.
“We are never so proud as when people from our community are recognized for the amazing work they do and have the opportunity to do great things like this,” said Leah Poole, Liberty County Chamber/CVB CEO.
