Eyedrum is packing in two openings, Sister Louisa is bringing her disgrace to Aurora Coffee, San Francisco takes over Marcia Wood,  and more this weekend in Atlanta. All the details after the jump.



In an interview with Culture Surfing yesterday, Sister Louisa told us, "Honey, I just sit back here in my airstream trailer and paint the first thing that comes to my mind when I see these pictures." Read all about her life after the convent before checking out Sister Louisa's Heaven and Hell at Aurora Coffee in L5P tonight. The reception starts at 7 pm.


Eyedrum packs in two openings tonight. Paintings from veteran Atlanta artist Clark Vreeland will share space with the ExLucis Juried Photography Show in Eyedrum's main gallery. The Contemporary's artistic director Stuart Horodner selected work for ExLucis from graduate and undergraduate students at Georgia State. VISPO, a group show of visual poetry, continues in Eyedrum's small gallery space. More details at Eyedrum.


Unless Thoughtmarker had pointed it out, the irony on this flier would have been entirely lost on me. I still don't know what's happening, but expect All Gold Everything at Studioplex tonight.

At Whitespace, Whitney and Micah Stansell will discuss their collaborative show, Past. Present. Continuous. The married artists work in completely different mediums, Whitney with drawing and fiber and Micah with multi-channel film installation, but Past. Present. Continuous. shows the results of a carefully considered engagement with one another's style. Culture Surfing spoke with Micah a couple weeks ago, after he was selected for MOCA GA's Working Artist Project. Details at Whitespace.

Louisiana-based Troy Dugas' work elevates quotidian materials like beer labels or playing cards to psychedelic, nearly spiritual levels by weaving them into flawlessly repetitive mandalas or tapestry-like abstractions. His new show, Centered, continues tonight at Barbara Archer and on through May 8.

Kelly Cloninger
