ABOUT THE ARTIST

Courtenay Puckett is a South Georgia Mixed Media Artist; originally from Lawrenceville, GA. She has been working as a professional fine artist since 2017, and an arts educator since 2006. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Art in Art Education with a concentration in Drawing and Painting from the Lamar Dodd School of Art from the University of Georgia. She is a member of the National Art Education Association, the Georgia Art Education Association, and CIVA | Christians in the Visual Arts. In 2018 she was chosen as A Curated American Artist and in 2019 she held her first solo show entitled “Living Waters”.

Her artwork has an element of playful joy in the abstractions and layers. This quality is a direct influence of her children, whom she adores. Children have a unique way of making every moment fun; adopting this attitude in her artistic process has helped to cultivate her unique style. It is Courtenay’s goal to draw the viewer toward simple beauty, shared human experiences, and the One who made it all.

She resides in Americus, Georgia with her loving husband and two children. You can find her enjoying being a wife, a mom, working with the local Baptist Collegiate Ministry, and working with the foster care community through, Called to Care.

Farewell to our friend and fellow arts warrior, Femi Anderson. She was an absolute lighthouse. She never stopped working, and she was always working to make the world brighter for everyone around her. Our time together was too short, but the light she leaves behind will shine on. Rest In Peace, Femi. Your legacy will never be forgotten. #foreverfemi

About Us

Who We Are

The primary function of the Albany Area Arts Council has always been to work collaboratively with other local arts and cultural organizations, most primarily our Member Organizations which include Albany Civil Rights Institute, Albany Museum of Art, Albany Symphony Orchestra, Georgia Artists Guild of Albany, The Albany Chorale, Theatre Albany, Thronateeska Heritage Center, Albany State University, and Dougherty County School System.

The AAAC is essential to arts development and education within the community, consistently collaborating with other arts and culture agencies. The AAAC provides regular meeting space for assorted groups including the Georgia Artists Guild of Albany; arts, crafts and educational workshops; and college art classes.

One of the ways the AAAC supports local culture is through historic preservation. Since 1991, the AAAC has served as steward to the beautiful, historic Carnegie Library for the City of Albany. The AAAC sponsors the arts by utilizing this beautiful facility as an art gallery for local and regional artists. We encourage community engagement by offering opening receptions for each exhibition; the openings and exhibitions are always free and open to the public. The exhibitions attract a diverse audience from all parts of Albany and many surrounding communities. Because of The Carnegie’s central location, these events also help promote the revitalization of downtown Albany through the development of an arts district.
