LISTINGS OF SPECIAL EVENTS >>>


THE CREATIVES PROJECT ART SUPPLY DRIVE
Drop off new and used art supplies to benefit young artists in need at any of the Westside Arts District participating galleries.  Just look for the red bins!  This year the focus is on 2D art work – so we’re collecting items for drawing, painting, printmaking photography as well as miscellaneous items such as glue, glue sticks, scissors, rulers, matt boards, tape, etc.  You get the idea!

In conjunction with the exhibition “WORKS ON PAPER,” artist Jon Ciliberto will talk about his artistic practice, using found and donated materials and bestowing his drawings as gifts. In many ways, this activity is tied to his study of Buddhism and a practice of mindfulness, compassion and renunciation of material things. In keeping with this practice, his works on view at {Poem88} have been gifted to the gallery to be sold or not. His work recently appeared in ArtsCriticATL.com illustrating performances at Sonic Palooza.

Sandler Hudson is pleased to present Yanique Norman in a solo show.  Norman’s new body of work, “Middle Passages Redux,” will feature graphite drawings that introduce the experimental use of collage and gouache.  This new body of work grew out of the artist’s search for understanding how to visually capture the emotional and psychological.
