The Atlanta Cyclorama & Civil War Museum will host Kara Walker hosting a free lecture tonight at 6 on "The Art of War." As CL's Andrew Alexander wrote yesterday, "it's a fascinating, provocative pairing of speaker and setting."
After the jump, openings, screenings and more.
Charlie Brouwer's first exhibit at Whitespace is now on view and spotlights 20 white orchard ladders and, among them, a life-sized wooden figure. There are also drawings. A reception opens tonight from 7-10.
Spaces, a group exhibit of abstract landscapes by Loretta Paraguassu, Helen Ferguson Crawford, Eva Magill-Oliver, and Martha Stiles, is opening at One Twelve Gallery with a 7 p.m. reception. The works vary by texture and composition, but each is a scape-shifting wonder.
Blair Crimmins & The Hula Hookers, along with Davina & The Harlots, Hoop Essence, The Clap, Ghost Bikini, and The Little 5 Points Rockstar Orchestra will all perform at "Summer Sounds," a 7 Stages fundraiser at The Goat Farm Arts Center. From 7 p.m.-midnight; tickets are $15 at the door.
The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia is opening Atlanta Printmakers Studio: Selections from the Emerging Artist Residency with a reception from 6:30-8:30 tonight. The show includes Hannah Skoonberg, Whitney Stansell, Cynthia Thompson, and MINT Leap Year recipient Jessica Caldas.
MOCAGA will also open group exhibit Working Artist Project: 2010/2011 Studio Assistants with a reception from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
The Atlanta Printmakers Studio also opened Pressing Matters III at OCAA's City Gallery Chastain last night. The exhibit is annual and open to all members, so it'll include a range of printmakers and their makings.
The Hammonds House Museum is screening Sam O’Steen’s Sparkle at 8 p.m. Curtis Mayfield composed the music, which is reason enough to turn out.
Across the city, the High is screening Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver at 8:15 p.m as part of its "Archival Gotham: NYC On Film" series. The film has become legendary since its 1976 release, with good reason: it's scuzzy, sociopathic, addictive viewing.
Last for the weekend, MODA is leading a studio visit with street artist, furniture maker and be-monikered Evereman, who will speak about art's importance. Attendees will also get a chance to work on a project with the artist.
