2021  Cat Tesla: Breathe

 "Painting is a deep dive within oneself with the goal of pulling out something beautiful with which the world can connect.  Like many other artists, I find that nature is my muse. Inspiration for colors, shapes, and textures in my work originates in nature. My paintings provide viewers with bold graphic elements from a distance, while rich details and textures reward viewers at close range." --Cat Tesla

2019  Daniel Byrd, Working Title: Larger than Life

“Working Title” is an immersive installation by a young Atlanta artist who has already build a reputation far beyond the city. Byrd’s installation covers an entire gallery. The artist’s conception was to create a mural encompassing the gallery’s four walls acting as both underpinning and counterpoint to a group of paintings on canvas that interact with the mural. Byrd’s work is often complex and colorful, inspired by elements of graffiti and street art that has intrigued and inspired him since childhood. The artist describes his work as the layering of independent elements that compete joyfully with each other for visual dominance.

2019  Mary Anne Mitchell: Dreamscape

The installation "Dreamscape" is an evolution of Mary Anne Mitchell's long-term project "Meet Me in My Dreams." Both video and still photography draw the viewer into the artist's mythical environment, largely created with the use of the wet-plate collodion photographic process. Inspired by one of the artist's own poems, "Dreamscape" speaks to family, memory and the inevitable passage of time. The exhibition is presented in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography.
