Claudia Hartley earned a BFA degree in painting and drawing from the University of Georgia in 1967. She says that her love of art began as a child when she was given a new box of Crayola crayons. She spent many years living and painting out West and has recently returned to GA to live near family.

Art is Meant to be Shared: Highlights of The Eddie Basha Collection
January 27 – June 8, 2024
Eddie Basha grew up captivated by the American West. In 1971 under the encouragement and guidance of his Aunt Zelma, Eddie began collecting art. What began as a hobby quickly grew into an inspirational passion, combining his keen interest in the history of the American West, his admiration of the American Indian and his appreciation for art. His collection grew into one of the largest private collections of contemporary Western American and American Indian art in the world. This exhibition will feature a select number of works of art from what is now known as the Basha Collection
