Currently showing in Atlanta and Columbus, Georgia, this abstract painter’s recent series reflects on 25 years of work.
The idea for BURNAWAY originated from a front-porch conversation about the need for more dialogue about local art. This week’s edition of Our Front Porch is a themed list by local artist Yanique Norman, describing some mythological inspirations for her work.
Currently up at Sandler Hudson Gallery are two shows: Marshall Davis’s Recent Work in all earth tones, makes use of found objects of wood and metal, while Didi Dunphy’s Cross-Stitch offers four compact needlepoints in brightly colored plastic embroidery hoops. These two bodies of work have little to do with each other; Davis’s fills the [...]
I spent Saturday morning in crisis mode, frantically driving around Atlanta in search of a prescription for insulin. Not to be hyperbolic, but it was the worst thing that ever happened. Miserably, I trudged across the highway to the Westside, hardly expecting art to make me feel any better. To my surprise, the four recently [...]
For the past five years, Atlanta artist Don Cooper has painted concentric circles radiating from a tiny red dot called the bindu. In E-8?, a collection of 16 new paintings at Sandler Hudson Gallery, he continues this format with variations in scale and materials. At first glance these works seem to be solely about optical [...]

01/14/10 Katherine Mitchell: What is beauty?
Katherine Mitchell told me that “the thing that’s frightening about beauty is its infinitude.” Her collage, What is Beauty? engages this notion via its use of text and form. The work is part of her recent solo exhibition, Correspondences, Conversations, and Texts, which was up at Sandler Hudson Gallery through January 9.
10/23/09 To Do List
Between film screenings, artist lectures, an architecture fair, and a tribute to the Mexican Dia de los Muertos in the works, there’s still plenty to see and do in the week ahead.
Rarely do people set out to be “local artists”—not when the industry has become so highly professionalized, global, and grand. Although there are practitioners who bring true dignity to the phrase, its contemporary usage still carries an unsaid judgment that lingers in the air like an annoying, dull dagger. Embarrassing and often unfair, the assumption [...]
