ARTalk: (Un)reliable Accounts: Contemporary Southern Art with Kara Soper

Please join us on September 10th at 6pm for an ARTalk with Kara Soper. In her talk “(Un)reliable Accounts: Contemporary Southern Art," independent curator and art consultant Kara Soper will discuss trends in contemporary art as related to the duality of the American South. A conflicted past juxtaposed with renewed interest in Southern culture has inspired artists to make work that sparks new conversations about our region's place as one of the most visually, historically, and culturally-rich places in the nation and world. 

GCCA’s ARTalk series is sponsored by Abacus Planning Group.

Exhibition Opening: Flight Pattern
Feb

6:00 PM18:00

Exhibition Opening: Flight Pattern

Come join us on February’s First Friday for the opening reception of our new exhibition: Flight Pattern

Flight Pattern juxtaposes the work of two contemporary artists, sculptor Nathaniel Foley (Findlay, OH) and print-maker Monika Meler (Stockton, CA), who emphasize fragility as it relates to aviation and memory.

Monika Meler’s journey as a Polish immigrant to America underscores the visual patterns she creates. As time passes, memories change, distort and blur together. Her layered prints repeat and change direction on top of each other, mimicking the process of remembering.

Nathaniel Foley was immersed in the field of aviation at an early age, instilling an inclination to defy limitations. Foley’s delicate sculptural forms, made of various cones, are held together by tension lines. For Foley, aviation dances the line between grace and imminent danger.

This event is free to attend and all are welcome! There will be refreshments and a free Kids Art Activity available.
