“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.

“His comment underscores the anxiety and embarrassment that often accompanies political optimism. After all, everybody knows that smart people aren’t stupid enough to have hopes.”

“Pink Seductions” by Lucha Rodriguez opens at Gallery Stokes


Opening installation for "Pink Seductions" by Luca Rodriguez

Having become something of a regular opening attendee at Gallery Stokes in Castleberry Hill, I had the good luck of seeing the new “Pink Seductions” show by SCAD graduate student Lucha Rodriguez, as part of the Gallery’s Emerging Artist Series. The show, which runs through this Saturday, explores the body as an “intimate private space” and includes some incredibly intricate, truly lovely work.

The following week, Craig Donkoski will open “Durations,” which will run through December 11. Look for a post on that post-Halloween!

Gallery Stokes is located in the Castleberry Hill Arts District, 261 Walker St. SW Atlanta, Ga. 30313. The Gallery is open by appointment as well as during Castleberry Hill 2nd Friday Art Strolls, 7-10 PM.
