211 Hoyt St
Athens, GA 30601
The Lyndon House hosts an exhibit featuring artifacts, paintings, sculpture, wearable costumes and garments all created by Eddie Owens Martin (aka St. EOM) of Pasaquan. Pasaquan is Martin’s visionary artist environment recently restored by the Kohler Foundation. Pasaquan is located in Buena Vista, Georgia and is overseen by Michael McFalls, professor of art at Columbus State University. This exhibit and associated events are made possible through a Public Impact Grant from the Willson Center and are in partnership with the University of Georgia Press, which is launching the reprint of Tom Patterson’s St. Eom in the Land of Pasaquan.
The reception and signing event will feature author Tom Patterson, whose book St. EOM in the Land of Pasaquan: The Life and Times and Art of Eddie Owens Martin has just been reprinted by the UGA Press. Patterson will be in the gallery to sign copies on Thursday, November 8 beginning at 5:30 pm. Books are available for purchase that evening courtesy of Avid Booksellers.
This exhibit is on display November 8, 2018 – January 12, 2019.
