ATHENS, Alabama - Athens Voices USA'13, an Athens, Ohio biennial event by The Dairy Barn Arts Center, is an all media, juried art exhibition that aims to feature the diverse styles and visions of artists residing within 30 miles of a city named Athens in the United States. Athens Voices USA 2013 will be the fourth juried art exhibition celebrating “Athens” from all over the Nation.

Athens Voices USA'13 Exhibition opens locally on June 6 at the Alabama Center for the Arts located at 133 2nd Avenue in Decatur, Alabama. Exhibit hours are Monday through Thursday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, and Friday from 8:00 to noon. The show will close on August 20.

359 submitted works from artists living in or near a city named “Athens” were considered in December by Jurors who met at the Dairy Barn in Ohio. 76 pieces were chosen to compose the Athens Voices USA'13 Exhibition. Seven of these 76 pieces are from five Athens State University students who attend classes at the Alabama Center for the Arts in downtown Decatur; Katelin Harris, Robyn Locke, Eric Murphy, Heather Snow and Adriana Stephens.

To kick off the show’s opening on June 6, a lecture by one of the show’s jurors, Gary Kirksey, will be offered at the Center. Kirksey serves as an associate professor, School of Visual Communication, Ohio University. A few of his works will be included in the display at the Center alongside the Voices show.
