Episode 53: Our guests this week are Matt Haffner, an artist and professor at Kennesaw State University, and Cosmo Whyte, the 2009 recipient of the Forward Arts Foundation Emerging Artist Award. Barbara Archer Gallery’s next exhibition is Talent Loves Company, a salon of fresh local artists curated by an outside panel of experts including Michael Rooks of the High Museum and critics Cinque Hicks and Felicia Feaster. Matt Haffner’s choice for the show was Cosmo White, and the two take the opportunity to reflect on each other’s work and what it means to “pay it forward” to the next generation. Talent Loves Company opens at 7-9PM this Friday, June 22, 2012.
