Visual art: The Beast in Me 

Mon., Sept. 8

To borrow a title from a piece by Tallahassee artist Linda Hall, we are what we endanger. The former Atlanta resident spends a lot of her time as an AmeriCorps worker at the Wakulla Springs State Park south of her hometown, which brings her closer to nature. Her relation to the birds and the bees, the flora and the fauna, and a few friendly bears infuses her paintings and sculptures. Her return to Atlanta, in the form of THE BEAST IN ME at Young Blood Gallery, features works that blur the lines of identity between man and nature — costumes of animals, men with animal heads and animals with human features. She hopes her sculptures convey “an animal energy that suffuses what is human, and a humanity that resides in objects and beasts.” Through Sept. 28. Free. Sun.-Thurs., noon-8 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., noon-9 p.m. 636 N. Highland Ave. 404-254-4127. youngbloodgallery.com.
