Break out the walking shoes this weekend. The Westside Art District will be leading crowds from gallery to gallery for a sequence of artist talks and the Wonderroot folks are calling out for artists and art-lovers to help with their pedestrian friendly project, Art Sign the Beltline 2.0 at Eyedrum. Clare Rojas quietly opens a show this weekend at the ACA gallery, too. Check out a full weekend of events after the jump.
California-based artist Clair Rojas will show a collection of prints, paintings, and sculptures at The Atlanta College of Art Gallery. The show, Through the Woods, opens today but a reception won't be held until April 1, when Rojas is on hand to perform as her banjo-picking alter ego, Peggy Honeywell.
The Ready Set Read series continues at Whitespace gallery tonight, featuring a reading from poet Sabrina Orah Mark. A letterpress book created for this evening will be given away during the reading. You can read an excerpt from her first collection of prose poems, The Babies.
