AGS Highlights Local Artists for Fourth Quarter!

Augusta Regional Airport (AGS) is excited to provide the traveling public with amazing works of art from one local artist for the final quarter of the year.

The AGS Art Committee selected this artist to highlight their talents in the commercial terminal building for the fourth quarter of the year. The airport is the perfect venue to have artwork viewed by thousands of travelers, as well as showcase the talent of the local art community.

Bruce McElya, from Aiken, South Carolina, has extensive experience in photography. A graduate from Texas Tech. University, Bruce earned a degree in Civil Engineering and Telecommunications. In 1974 he began his commercial photography business shooting large format ektachromes for architects. His work was featured in Architectural Record and Architectural Digest.

Mr. McElya began shooting black and whites to be sold in galleries. He likes to focus on nature and wildlife. One collection of work focuses on a family of swans from the Colorado River that runs through the Grand Canyon.

You can see Bruce’s work in the gate area October through December.
