Atlanta artist travels to Savannah to show off his work

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

An Atlanta artist traveled down to Savannah to show off some of his most recent works of art.

Jerome Lawrence hosted a show titled "I am always home" at the gallery at St. Paul's Sunday afternoon.

Lawrence was an art major at Georgia State and was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia while at school.

However, he has used art as a medium to better express himself with his peers and overcome his illness.

Lawrence says, "It's marvelous to see art that's beautiful and inspiring and creative and just, you know, a feel good kind of art that also has some deeper meaning. I don't know if you can call it spiritual but it has some kind of inspirational feel that does make you feel good, that keeps you on a positive spirit. I love it and I'm glad other people love it too."

The show will remain open until October 28th and it is free to the public.
