For the month of August, 2 Rules Fine Art is running The Colors of Summer, a mixed-media exhibit of summer-y pieces which capture a range of the city's seasonal shades. Oddly, they don't say anything about the heat. A reception opens tonight at 6 p.m.
After the jump, more hotspots around town.
Gather Atlanta, WonderRoot, MINT Gallery, and Burnaway's annual local arts education/networking event continues through the weekend. Check out CL's Q&A with Chris Appleton, Gather Atlanta organizer and WonderRoot executive director, and Atlanta Art Now’s Oronike Odeleye for more on this year's event.
Ashley Cline and Jonny Warren kick off their new exhibit, All That is Here and Now, at The Cube Gallery, which will include a shared installation and individual paintings, with a reception at 7 p.m.
The Barbara Archer Gallery will be closing Talent Loves Company, a group exhibit of local emerging artists. Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Whitespace is also closing its exhibit, From Cosmology to Neurology and Back Again, a group show curated by Jerry Cullum that's a heady stew of culture, neurology, psychology, and semiotics.
In conjunction with the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center's Deliverance exhibit, performance artist Anya Liftig is putting on another piece at Piedmont Park at 1 p.m., presented by ACAC, in which she will discuss "aspects of history with a canine friend."
It's the first Saturday in August! Which means it's time for the Ponce Crush First Saturday Art Stroll! Between 7 and 10 p.m., stop by either Beep Beep, Kibbee, or Young Blood (or all three) while strolling to see new exhibits at each space. Jason R. Butcher's As in a Mirror, Dimly: Scenes from a Film I will Never Finish opens at Beep Beep; Allyson Cummings's Scoutabout: Abstracted Landscapes & Botanicals is at Young Blood; and opening at Kibbee is the group show Same River Twice with work by Brandon Crawford, Teresa Bramlette Reeves and Lisa Tuttle.
CouchCouch is screening Welfare, by Frederick Wiseman, at 7 p.m. Wiseman is the grandfather of the American documentary form and his most famous works, including High School and Hospital, are marked by their observational keenness — and also their trickery: Wiseman was known to cut disparate shots together so that, say, a school administrator seemed to be leering through a gynamisum door window. Welfare, for the uninitiated, is good Wiseman 101. Netflix the rest.
