An Art-Hopping Weekend

The weekend of Dec. 12-14 was chockfull of art openings and events. I hit up three and still managed to miss out on some (like Estela Semeco’s Street Faces exhibit at The 9 Ace Gallery and Olive47’s Colourlovers show at Nelson Street Gallery). First was Whitespace’s annual December Show, with myriad works on display—from sculptures and sketches to paintings and multimedia pieces—from artists including Didi Dunphy, Matt Haffner, Sarah Emerson and Adrienne Outlaw. In the spot’s smaller gallery space, Whitespec, artist Karley Sullivan’s exhibit was a stunning display of her interpretation of all the known moon’s in our solar system, along with the names written in white on the chalkboard-covered walls.

Next was the #FAFATL (Free-Art Friday Atlanta) show at Trackside Tavern in Decatur. Spanning three walls in the watering hole, everything from photographs and paintings to collages and cross-stitch was on display, from artists like Larry Holland and Susannah Leigh.

Lastly, we ventured to MINT Gallery’s annual Postcard Pinup show, the result of an open artist call-out where anyone can submit up to four postcard-size works and name their selling price, with anywhere from 40 to 100 percent of proceeds going back to MINT’s ongoing initiatives. Postcard materials ranged from watercolor and markers to wood and string, and the crowd was packed.

Check out photos from these exhibits above. Also: we won’t be publishing a new story next week—happy holidays!
