Gari Melchers Collectors’ Society (GMCS) members will have the opportunity to join in on a fascinating conversation about collecting the work of Savannah artist Ulysses Davis (1914–1990), whose fantastical wood sculptures are the subject of Telfair’s current exhibition Created Beasts: Sculpture by Ulysses Davis. Participants will enjoy libations, a special tour of the show with Harry Delorme, director of education and senior curator, and conversation with Atlanta-based collectors David and Janice Miller about their collecting points of focus and the work of Ulysses Davis.

Created Beasts: Sculpture by Ulysses Davis

Jepson Center
Telfair presents the first exhibition to focus on depictions of creatures, real and imagined, in the work of noted Savannah wood sculptor Ulysses Davis (1914–1990). Born in Fitzgerald, Georgia, Davis taught himself to carve wood as a child and relocated to Savannah to establish a barbershop where he created his art. This exhibition explores Davis’ sculptures of beasts inspired by biblical stories, as well as fantastic creatures that sprang entirely from his fertile imagination.
