Allied Arts will host an exhibit by Milledgeville photographer Maryllis Wolfgang from February 25 through April 6. The exhibit, titled “Take Me Away,” will be on display at the Marlor Art Center at 201 N. Wayne Street.
Maryllis Wolfgang moved to Milledgeville in 1980 and earned a B.S. and an M.S. in Psychology from Georgia College. She worked at Georgia College in Admissions and Enrollment Services until 2007. Her passion for photography developed in the early 2000s, after she received her first digital camera in 2001. In 2007, Maryllis established her photography business, The Crazy W, LLC. Later that year, she became a first-time vendor at the Daylily Festival in Gray, Ga. Since her first festival, Maryllis has participated in multiple festivals each year, including “Christmas Made in the South” and the Lake Oconee Festival.
Maryllis has won numerous awards through the years, including wins at Allied Arts’ annual Big Click exhibit, Middle Georgia Art Association exhibits, Jasper Artfest, and the Mullberry Street Festival. In addition to showing and selling her work, Maryllis is also the official photographer for the Milledgeville-Baldwin Chamber of Commerce and the Managing Photographer and Feature Writer at Milledgeville Living Magazine. She has worked as a photographer for Deep Roots Festival, Jones County Magazine, Houston County Magazine, and currently works with a Canon 5D Mark III.
Mrs. Wolfgang’s first camera was a gift from her husband, and she is thrilled that photography has taken her places she never expected. She is excited about sharing her photography during the exhibit: “There is beauty all around- in people, animals, and landscapes. I am constantly amazed at the ability of the camera to record what I see so that I can share my vision with others.” Maryllis has been married to her husband, Jim, since 1979 and has two daughters and a grandson. She is currently a member of the Allied Arts Friends Council.
“Take Me Away” will be on display at the Marlor Arts Center from February 25 until April 6. On February 25, the Milledgeville community is invited to attend the gallery reception from 1:00 – 3:00 at the Marlor Art Center. Maryllis will give an art talk about the process and inspiration behind some of her favorite pieces, and guests will have the opportunity to speak with her individually.
