Kai Lin exhibits Dreamscape, a group show featuring work by Atlanta-based artists Wallace Duvall, Adam Wellborn, Greg Noblin, and Janie Stamm. The show includes a wide variety of media - from oil paintings to etchings - but focuses on each artist's interpretations of "ethereal, ephemeral, explosive dreams." More details from Kai Lin.

Saturday

Artlantis, the art festival that makes all other art festivals looks like Tchotchke festivals, returns to the corner of Highland and Ponce on Saturday, bringing with it a bevy of bands, beer, and badass art. Kenn Twofour, Ashley Anderson, Romy Maloon, Kelly McKernan, and so many others will offer their work to festival goers, while a lineup of damn-fine local musicians perform throughout the day. The music gets started around 11 am. Get a full run down from Artlantis.

If you survive hanging out in the sun all day during Artlantis, you'll be in the perfect spot to appreciate Ponce Crush. The monthly gallery stroll returns this month with a mixed media installation by Sloane Robinson Cheatham, Susan A. Cipcic, and Shana Wood at Kibbee, Stacey Page and Stephanie Blair at Young Blood, and Louis N. LaPierre and Sanithna Phansavanh at Beep Beep Gallery. Get more details from Ponce Crush.

If you've been longing for design exhibitions in Atlanta, this is the weekend for you. Modern by Design opens at the High, part of the museum's ongoing collaboration with MOMA, including works by some of the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Octane Coffee on the Westside will exhibit Made, featuring handmade works by contemporary designers working in the American South. Continuing into next week, Modern Atlanta will pack in a full schedule of design-related events across town.
