Hiding in Plain Sight examines the work of world famous outsider artist Purvis Young. A collection of Young’s large scale works are examined in light of his influences, including the Wall of Respect and The Mexican Muralists, and those he influenced, including the emerging graffiti culture of 1970s Miami.
Clear Reflections is a group exhibition of realist paintings and drawings, featuring works by David Kessler, Paul Cadden, Michael Zigmond James Zamora, Otto Lange, LeeAnna Repass, Eva Hurskin, Kenneth Pasley, Sally Tharp and Carl Holzman.
South is a point on the compass, a direction, a serious state of decline, an area below, or a region of America below the Mason Dixon line. This show presents the word and its interpretations by over 40 artists. Come see the art this Saturday night at Kibbee Gallery. This will be a fun, large group show with a wide array of things to see.
Atlanta Photography Group
Photographers often cite the camera as a means or excuse to explore new places and meet new people. For some, it is a way to examine emotions, relationships, ideas and abstractions. For Undiscovered Territory, APG invites artists of all media to present imagery from their own personal explorations.
APG is open to a broad range of work that incorporates the lens or photographic process in a significant way, including manipulated and mixed processes.
I think nearly every artist continually wants to reach the edge of nothingness --- the point where you can't go any further. – Harry Callahan

The winner of the 2014 Nexus Award, Susan Bridges is known for the opportunities she gives artists for experimentation. Her gallery exhibits a wide range of emerging and established talents.
