From the Artist

Ansley West Rivers describes her inspiration for her Seven Rivers series.

Through her art, Rivers offers a vision of the state of water now and how we can envision a future of sustainability and conservation. Her ethereal photographs draw the viewer in with beauty and hopefully ignite a desire to save what is being threatened. Telfair Museums ultimately chose Rivers to be an #art912 artist at the Jepson Center because, in addition to her contributions as an artist to Savannah, we believe her voice will resonate for future generations within the larger American fabric. Her perspective brings to the forefront conversations about issues that affect us all.

Complex Uncertainties: Artists in Postwar America

Jepson Center
The rise of America as a world superpower after WWII created a distinctly individual and identifiably “American” approach to artmaking. Complex Uncertainties is an evolving exhibition grounded by works in Telfair’s modern and contemporary collection that reveals some of the ways in which historic events challenge artists to construct narratives and react to power.
