Sarah Emerson at ELEVATE | Art Above Underground

August 26 – October 30, 2011
Downtown Atlanta
Opening reception: Friday, August 26 | 5 – 10 PM
Whitespace is pleased to announce Sarah Emerson’s participation in Atlanta’s ELEVATE | Art Above Underground!  This sixty-six day long public art exhibition features both art installations and performances from a variety of local, national, and international artists.  The project is the result of a collaboration between the City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs Public Art Program and Underground Atlanta, and it is meant to bring attention to both the downtown Atlanta area and the city’s art community.  Emerson’s piece, “Zero Mile,” is a vinyl window installation in the heart of downtown.  Named after the sign marking the city limit, the piece shows the imagined imagery of post-Civil War Atlanta.  The piece is illuminated at night, but it is also visible during the day.

ELEVATE officially opens Friday, August 26, 2011 at 5 PM along the Upper Alabama Street Corridor and surrounding areas in central downtown Atlanta.  
Make sure you see Sarah’s piece near the capitol before ELEVATE ends October 30th!

Soft Trap: Opening Night!

I was very sorry to miss the opening reception of Sarah Emerson and Jeff Grant’s Soft Trap + Withershins. But many of you were smart enough to stay in town (do away with the traffic, please!) and grace us with your presence at the gallery. It seems to have been great fun and games! Thank you all for coming!
We are open until 5 this afternoon if you wish to stop by, and would love to see you here!
