*Event: Curator Talk: Stuart Horodner
Artistic Director Stuart Horodner leads a tour and discussion of the current exhibitions. He will focus on the artists’ use of materials, and issues of tradition and process.
On view: Jessica Jackson Hutchins: The Important Thing About A Chair, and John Heward: Things
Two exhibitions that combine expressive gestures, sensual materials, and space-altering invention. Works by Jessica Jackson Hutchins bring together glazed ceramic vessels nestled into altered furniture, and mixed media works on paper combining printmaking, collage, and drawing/writing. Hutchins was an acclaimed participant in the 2010 Whitney Biennial. John Heward is one of Canada’s most respected artists, and his formal investigations into the possibilities of painting and sculpture are well known in that country. He is also an internationally known jazz drummer. This is the first major presentation of his work in the United States.

Alex Brewer, Dixie Purvis, and Brett Smith:  Mark Making in Black and White.  This exhibition is about the act of painting, specifically mark making in a restrictive palette.  The artists share the art of mark making in their work.  This gestural act is used dramatically and differently by each of these three artists.

EMILY AMY GALLERY
1000 Marietta St. NW, Ste. 208  (404) 877-5626
www.emilyamygallery.com Open 11am – 5pm.
Exhibition: Meta Gary: Animal Instinct.  Emily Amy Gallery is pleased to present new works by emerging Atlanta-based artist, Meta Gary. Painting on untreated, exposed wood, Gary incorporates a contact paper/stencil technique to create a strong visual contrast and to accentuate her whimsical and seemingly simple imagery. Gary’s dreams about animals inform her work. Human and animal interaction, specifically the intimacy between the two, serves as the catalyst for the imagined scenarios that occupy her exposed wood panels. The distinct parallels that can be drawn between animals and humans serves as a significant theme the can be found throughout Gary’s work.

*New Exhibition*

www.kiang-gallery.com Open Noon – 5pm.
Danille Roney: On the Edge of Self. In collaboration with Jeff Conefry and contributions from Penny Aviles. Roney’s newest multimedia project deftly sets the stage of a poignant moment in time, a choice, “to stay or to leave”. Circumstances are deconstructed through a series of parallel, bifurcating movements in which randomization software plays a key role, allowing a third and final author to participate, beyond the artist’s creation. Roney explores the psychological space “ in between”, where hybrid identity is crystallized and personal and social identities are transformed by multicultural and virtual influences in a real-time world.

Since his arrival to Atlanta, Aguilera added the Southern Vernacular Art to his library of influences.
