She is an Assistant Professor in Visual Arts at Albany State University and has taught at Florida State University, Florida A&M University, and College of Charleston.

Dr. Simmons began experimenting with her father’s Canon camera as a child and fell in love with art and artistic practice while living in Paris. “I was studying abroad in Art Appreciation and the experience of seeing the art in museums that we were studying in class was magical. Combined with more exploration in photography, I was hooked. Even though I changed my major from science to art, I still get to use science today by creating new photographic works using historic methods.”
We are pleased to announce the winners of the 22nd Annual Southwest Georgia Regional Fine Arts Exhibit & Sale. The Exhibit & Sale, which is open to all artists living in Southwest Georgia, features a wide variety of mediums, including painting, sculpture, photography, and mixed media.
