LaGrange Art Museum:"2nd SE Regional Show"
LaGrange, GA | February 16-April 20, 2018
Hornsby was selected to exhibit his "F-R-1 (b)" painting, a new piece (comprised of 12 canvases) from his latest "Fracture: Recontextualized" series at the Second LaGrange Southeast Regional show in LaGrange, GA. More than 180 artists submitted over 600 entries for this biennial juried exhibition, representing artistic talent from the ten-state Southeast region.
Only 121 pieces were selected of the 600 submitted and less than half of the submitting artists were chosen. Of his selection, Hornsby said, "Art is a personal passion of mine, so to be selected out of so many talented artists is always quite an honor."
The show was juried by David Houston, Chief Curator, Crystal Bridges Art Museum and Director of the Bo Bartlett Center, College for the Arts, Columbus State University, in Georgia.
Artist Thea McElvy of Georgia won the People's Choice Award for "Brian".
"Faith" by artist Gail Wegodsky of Georgia earned a Juried Merit Award.

Hornsby's first solo exhibition in the Customs House Museum & Cultural Center's coveted Crouch Gallery featured 10 pieces of artwork from his “Fracture” series, which range in size from 43" x 43” to 90" x 90" and consists of 98 canvases. Upon entrance to the gallery, the focal point was the NYC-award-winning "Fracture 1," which sets the stage and begins the "Fracture" story with its impending size and stark imagery.
Stars in their own rights, the other 9 pieces —"F-Attack," "F-Ball," "F-Circle", "F-Defend," "F-Flight," "F-Nest," "F-Pod 2," "F-Try," and "F-X"— expand the "Fracture" story and reveal Hornsby's growth in the exploration of the ever-present tensions and contradictions existing in the human spirit.
Visitors from across Tennessee as well as other states attended the Opening Reception held Thurs., Mar. 9, 2017.
Hornsby's "Fracture" series was also featured in the April 2017 issue of the Nashville Arts Magazine.
