Art partnerships are tough. Pairing two passionate and perhaps temperamental personalities can be a recipe for disaster, so it takes a special match to work harmoniously, let alone get hitched. Since moving to Atlanta four years ago, husband and wife Rich Gere and Dayna Thacker have shown themselves to be individually talented and, together, a [...]
01/26/10 Saying goodbye to Gallery Stokes
Gallery Stokes has become a labor of love for Dayna Thacker, who started curating shows in the space in June 2007. She readily admits she had little knowledge of curatorial practices when she began the gallery, but with advice from friends and lots of hard work, she turned Gallery Stokes into a place that continually [...]
01/07/10 To Do List

10/16/09 To Do List
Don’t worry. If you’re not interested in seeing more photography, there’s still plenty of artwork in other media on view this weekend. (Take for instance the Leonardo da Vinci exhibit.) But if you are one of those camera-obsessed maniacs, prepare yourself for a total system shock.
08/28/09 To Do List
Art events continue to be sparse this summer (as usual). A few more casual Castleberry Hill openings, scattered group shows, and this year’s Animation Attack! should keep you busy all weekend.
06/26/09 To Do List
As one of the longest seeming weeks in my personal history comes to a close, the weekend brings promise of tube meat wrapped in deep fried dough, summer homes, and guerrilla art. So, everyone, make your gallery stops Friday, grab a corndog and music on Saturday, and finish it off by painting some signs with [...]
05/22/09 To Do List
More reasons to rave and scream: I don’t have enough time to see all these art shows this weekend! Ever feel that way? (But please make time to drop by the Gather Atlanta fundraising concert at WonderRoot Saturday!)
05/07/09 Craig Drennen at Gallery Stokes
Craig Drennen’s exhibition Mistresses, Apemantus, and Flattering Lords at Gallery Stokes is a tour de farce of conceptual brilliance and painterly bravura (its lack of actual “painterliness,” notwithstanding). The brilliance lies in the exhibition’s aesthetic translation of Timon of Athens, William Shakespeare’s most difficult and obscure play (though a very loose “translation,” consisting of painted [...]
05/01/09 To Do List
Expect a few surprises here at BurnAway.org over the summer (and don’t forget about Gather Atlanta on June 6!!). If you’d like to receive our new email newsletter, please send a blank email to email@example.com with NEWSLETTER in the subject heading.
04/24/09 To Do List
The Castleberry Hill ArtStroll is here again this Friday, turning your normally sedate gallery hopping into a frantic rush to be everywhere and see everything before 10PM. To make your journey harder, a scattering of shows open outside Castleberry, as does one new gallery. (And may we suggest Critical Mass as a suitable starting point [...]
04/10/09 To Do List
Urban hiking, architectural photography, graffiti, and transgressive film—if any of these interests sound appealing, there’s an event for you this weekend or in the week ahead.
04/09/09 Heidi Aishman: You Can't Win That!
I was intrigued to hear about Heidi Aishman’s show, “You Can’t Win That!” at Gallery Stokes. As a child, I had an obsession with stuffed animals (what little girl didn’t?). I was always on the hunt for new additions to the collection. In a nutshell, the essence of Aishman’s show is just that: her obsession [...]
