*Event: Curator Tour. ACAC Artistic Director Stuart Horodner leads a tour and discussion of the current exhibition.
Exhibition on view: Deliverance presents four provocative artists who use performance to create meditations on power, identity, sexuality, and race. Whether acting in front of an audience or the camera, they confront fears and fantasies, construct personas, learn new skills, and put their bodies into challenging situations. Like many of the figures from the history of art and popular culture that have inspired them, they are adept at shaping the space between the self and others––in gallery and museum contexts, outdoor sites, and the Internet.

For our summer exhibition, {Poem88} presents Living Color Redux: a second look at the formal aspects of color expressed in the work of David D’Agostino, Ryan Coleman, In Kyoung Chun, Helen Ferguson Crawford, Ryan Nabulsi, and Drew Tyndell. In both non-objective and representational works, these artists rely on the relationships of color and form in vibrant, luscious, meditative and even mysterious ways. Each artist uses their own strategy to arrive at their unique balance between luminosity and chroma through assorted media including assemblage, camera-less photography and more straightforward painting.

Sandler Hudson Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibit for Rocío Rodríguez entitled: Purge.
Personal history, engagement with aesthetic concerns, conflicts, references to systems both social and political have all contributed to the divergent fictions that have been present in Rodríguez’s work. In her most recent works she turns her attention inward once again. She focuses on that activity that has been her lifelong engagement—Painting. In 2011 Rodriguez started a series of drawings that discarded color in favor of a very limited and muted palette. She brought order and stability to her canvases purposefully calming down the frenetic activity of previous work and presents dichotomies that exist within the pictorial language. Her image is paint, mark, shape, line all exposed and placed at the front of the picture plane, stacked on totems or pedestals. As the work progresses a fuller color palette is returning to her work. Are these memorials to painting? Or a humorous parade of the components of what makes an image? Of these paintings Rodríguez says: “What is painting to me? I think these are like memorials to painting, making paintings about painting. But also being outside of it, commenting on it, while I create them and take them apart”. Exhibition continues through Sept 8.

Don’t forget to drop off your new and gently used art supplies during this SATURDAY for the WAD Walk! The Creatives Project (TCP) and The Addo Foundation present a Citywide Summer Art Supply Drive running through AUGUST 31st. This summer, local businesses and galleries unite through a common cause — to raise art supplies for TCP’s Community Arts Program (CAP). CAP’s focus is on mentoring underserved youth through the arts. Art supplies will be used in programs that may not have arts education, and that struggle with resources. TCP’s 2012 outreach will benefit the youth artists of Jacob’s Ladder, & VSA arts of Georgia. LET’S GET INVOLVED!
