Rail Arts District Studio Cruise, Tudor Square and Dashboard Co-op

Sunday, March 16th, 2014

This Saturday, March 15, was the annual Rail Arts District Studio Cruise (RAD) in my neighborhood of Avondale Estates. Held mostly in artists’ studios on Franklin Street, an industrial warehouse space that Marghe and Bob Means of Little Tree Art Studios began renovating years ago, it attracts people from all over metro Atlanta. This year, […]

Jim Byrne at Timothy Tew Gallery

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

Last weekend closed Jim Byrne’s show at Tew Galleries. Jim had found my blog and invited me to his opening. A group of his newest paintings was exhibited there from October 25 to November 25th, along with artist Isabelle Melchior. I was unable to make the opening, but saw the show and took some photos. Lighting […]

Sammy Peters

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

I discovered the painter Sammy Peters during an Alan Avery gallery opening this past fall and mentioned him in the post that I wrote about it. His work stood out as pure, structured, and fascinating abstraction in the midst of the surrealistic and figurative paintings being shown. We exchanged some notes during emails and he agreed to […]

Seek Atlanta visits artist Elyse DeFoor

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013

Two weekends ago, Seek ATL held a studio visit with the Atlanta artist Elyse DeFoor. Her studio is on the lower level, underneath a labyrinth of rooms in her Chamblee home. Elyse has been on the Atlanta art scene for some time, and has developed several bodies of work that deal with societal relationships and […]

Miami Basel

Friday, December 21st, 2012

Haven’t missed snow shoveling since I’ve been back in Atlanta, but here are some shots to get into the Christmas spirit – from the Feb. 2010 Snowmegeddon in West Chester, PA.   Good to see all the painting at Miami Basel – from afar, that is. I’ve been vicariously visiting by viewing Joanne Mattera’s blog […]

Rocio Rodriguez – Divergent Fictions at The Columbus Museum of Art

Saturday, November 10th, 2012

Last Saturday I caught the final weekend for the Rocio Rodriguez exhibit at the Columbus Museum of Art in Columbus, GA. I had never been to the space before and was pleasantly surprised. The painter had an exhibit at Sandler Hudson gallery in Atlanta earlier this year, but sadly I missed it. A 24 year retrospective in the […]

Taylor Means at Bill Lowe gallery

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

I know Taylor’s mom, Marghe Means, from the Avondale Arts Alliance board. The youngest artist that the Bill Lowe gallery represents, Means is currently in a three person show titled Unravel the Mystery, with Kathleen Morris and Barbara Brenner, up until early November. I went to the opening on October 12th and was stunned by the […]

Thomas Deans Friends of a Social Network show and two other openings

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

“A Web of Artists: Friends of a Social Network” is the official title for one of the three openings that I went to last night at Thomas Deans Fine Art in Atlanta. Previously on Bennett Street, the gallery has moved to Miami Circle. It’s an intimate space and the gallery did a great job of […]

SeekATL, studio visit with artist Brian Dettmer

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

The latest SeekATL visit this past Saturday was held at Brian Dettmer’s studio and house in Doraville. Some of those in attendance suggested that while having a studio in house offers a more personalized view of his/her lifestyle, that glimpse isn’t usually relevant to the work and could serve to distract. I enjoy being in […]

Summer Salon at Get This Gallery!

Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

This past Saturday I stopped in at two galleries that have been going strong in Atlanta since after I left town in the late 90s; Get This! and Saltworks next door.  Saltworks is relocating. The director Brian Holcombe told me he may evolve more of their focus on art fairs and with an online presence. […]
