Meet the Artist: Dr. Chris Greer

Please join us for our next Meet the Artist event, this time featuring local photographer and educator Dr. Chris Greer! To accompany his CCBC Gallery exhibition, “Clouds and Clay: Up Above Georgia”, Dr. Greer will spend an afternoon at the brewery demonstrating how he utilizes drones for his photography. Dr. Greer’s drones will transmit a live-stream video to the brewery while buzzing over Athens for visitors to enjoy. Come out on Sunday, February 25 to learn about this exciting technology and gain a new perspective on Athens!

“Clouds and Clay: Up Above Georgia” showcases a series of Dr. Greer’s aerial photographs over Georgia printed on aluminum. The artist will generously donate 100% of the artworks’ sales profits to Creature Comforts’ Get Comfortable fund, supporting local nonprofits that address poverty, homelessness, and hunger. The exhibition will be on view through Sunday, March 4, and the artwork is for sale through Dr. Greer’s website: http://www.upabovegeorgia.com/ 

Dr. Chris Greer is a Professor of Instructional Technology at Georgia College specializing in digital media and emerging technologies. Though he’s been taking photographs since the age of 10, Dr. Greer began using drones for his photography in last three years, seeking to capture viewpoints that would be impossible without the use of this technology. Dr. Greer has created content for institutions across the state, including the city of Athens, the University of Georgia, and Explore Georgia (the state’s official tourism office). In partnership with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Greer recently published “Georgia Parks and Natural Resources”, the first digital textbook on a state park system in the United States.

Greer is an avid traveler and has taught digital photography and media productions around the world, including Italy and Australia. Check out aerial photos from Georgia and his travels on his Instagram account, @upabovegeorgia.

Meet the Artist is an event series highlighting the artists exhibiting their work in the CCBC Gallery. The series is a part of Creature Comforts’ emerging Get Artistic initiative (launching June 2018) to support local artists. For more information, visit: www.getcurious.com/get-artistic/
