  • ZEN MOMENT: Karen Tauches' neon work "empty circle" is one of the 26 installations in a Cabbagetown house, collectively titled "Zen Dixie."
Zen Dixie is a multi-media exhibition of 26 installations placed inside a restored 100-year-old shotgun house in Cabbagetown. Curated by John Otte and taking place at Driver Phillips Studio, the works include drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, sound, and video. Of particular note are neon sculptures by Karen Tauches and pigments made of hand-shredded silk flowers by Gyun Hur, but all of the works together in the unusual setting achieve an eerie sense of suspended decay that's uniquely contemporary and Southern.

The work is on display through July 15 at 323 Berean Avenue, Saturdays and Sundays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment. The exhibition includes Atlanta- and New Orleans-based artists Lillian Blades, Courtney Egan, Dave Greber, Brian Guidry, E.K. Huckaby, Gyun Hur, Fereydoon Family, Sonya Yong James, John Otte, Michele Schuff, Nina Schwanse, Wesley Stokes, Karen Tauches, Gregor Turk, Delona Wardlaw, and Christian Bradley West.

For more information, contact John Otte at 404.840.2628 or via email at johnaotte@bellsouth.net.
