“Limitless” opens at the ASC Dalton Gallery Jan. 28

The Dalton Gallery’s first opening of the new year, “Limitless” celebrates the 400th anniversary of Galileo Galilei’s invention of the telescope, with works by Didi Dunphy, E.K. Huckaby, Lee Kean, Klimchak, Joe Peragine, and Martha Whittington. “Limitless” will run Jan. 28-March 7, with related events in February listed below. The opening reception for “Limitless” will be held at the Dalton on Jan. 28 from 6-8 pm.

"Bacteria Hotel," E.K. Huckaby (2010)

As Galileo embodied a pure spirit of the liberal arts with his holistic approach to discovery through creativity and imagination, the artists in “Limitless” ‘reveal hidden worlds’ by taking wide-ranging approaches to art while using an expansive scope to view the universe. Blasting off through conservative lines of boundary, their inventiveness takes them beyond tradition. In “Limitless,” modes of play, listening and looking — and a general draw on the senses — are primary.

Artist talks for “Limitless” will be held Wednesday, February 16 at 7 PM. On Friday, February 26, see “Sticks in Space” by Klimchak live at the Agnes Scott Bradley Observatory at 7 PM. Additionally, a curator talk for “Limitless” will be held Wednesday, March 3 at 7 PM.

The Dalton Gallery is located at 141 E. College Ave. Decatur, GA 30030. For directions, refer to the Agnes Scott website. The Gallery is located in the Dana Fine Arts Building on the corner of S. McDonough and E. Dougherty streets. Gallery hours are Mon-Fri 10 am-4:30 pm, Sat-Sun noon-4 pm. For a recorded message, call 404 471-5361.

More photos from Mandy Greer’s “Still Water”

If you’ve driven through the intersection of S. McDonough and E. College Ave. recently, you’ve definitely seen Mandy Greer’s “Still Water,” a crochet installment woven through the trees on the ASC campus. Student Jaime Henry-White (ASC ’13) took some beautiful up-close pictures of the crochet (which is just as pretty in the rain as in the sun!)

“In a culture that is increasingly dependent upon virtual connections, water binds us in a uniquely physical way. Greer has created a space where we may be immersed in our relationship with water – a space where we may walk, sit, or lay in the grass and float with the river: our Mater, Matrix, Mother and Medium.” — Mikaela Sheldt (’09)

Events: “Growth Spurt” at Danneman’s Coffee, 11/21


Exploring visual tactility for one night only.


Former Agnes Scottie Rhonda Lowry (now studying at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago) sent an invitation to a show she’ll be a part of this Saturday night. “Growth Spurt,” which will be shown for one night only on this Saturday, 11/21, and is the collaborative effort of 6 (mostly) Atlanta-based fiber artists (Ms. Lowry, April Leigh, Masha Kouznetsova, Aubrey Lonley-Cook, Corinne Kornder, and Jane Gillian Morrow). As the event info indicates, “the artists in this exhibit use their chosen processes of knitting, embroidery, twisting, binding, and much more to give life to material, to experiment with form and embellishment, and to expand our perception.” Sounds pretty cool! The show will run from 5pm-midnight in the upstairs of Danneman’s Coffee. (Click flyer image for the official Facebook event page.)

Danneman’s Coffee is located at 466 Edgewood Avenue in Atlanta, at the corner of Edgewood Ave. and Boulevard. No cost for attendance (though you should probably buy some coffee while you’re there).
