Opening reception: Wednesday, November 14 | 6 pm – 9 pm

November 14, 2012 – January 31, 2013

Join Sarah Emerson at Puritan Mill on Wednesday, November 14 for the opening reception of Beneath the Setting Sun. This exhibition presents primarily new works that have never been shown in Atlanta, which share the same mix of candy-like colors and macabre narratives that is indicative of her artistic style. In the exhibition, Beneath the Setting Sun, Emerson refers to a phrase from Lewis Carroll’s introduction to Alice in Wonderland where Carroll reflects on his whimsical creation of Alice and her journeys through Wonderland after falling through the rabbit hole. As a parallel tale to Alice’s journey, in this selection of paintings Emerson examines contemporary landscape and the history of specific locations that embody the haunting echoes of paradise and innocence lost. In the gap between concept and abstraction, Emerson hopes to document the collision of the actual event in its place and the imaginary tale of the event abstracted by distance, time, and romantic notoriety. Inspired by actual battlefields, a haunted forest in Japan, and woodland creatures peering through the branches, she creates a fantastical analogical study of the actual places combined with the myths and remnants associated with that site.

“Little Things Mean a Lot”  at the  Swan Coach House Gallery

This year marks the 13th year of our holiday show, Little Things Mean A Lot. exhibit has become as popular with the artists across the region as it has with the public and our loyal patrons. The most highly anticipated exhibit of the year, our “lucky 13th” edition will not disappoint!

As curator, I always try to showcase a broad spectrum of art and artists, while upholding high quality standards. I make sure that the work is visually pleasing, offering “something for everyone.” I love to show the work of young emerging artists along side that of more prominent established artists. Because of the number of talented artists in our area, I invite an entirely new group to participate each year. They all seem to enjoy the challenge of working small.

Once again the walls of the gallery will be covered with well over 300 little works of art created by 115 participating artists. As in years past, we will replace sold work with new pieces, thereby creating a fresh and exciting, ever-changing art exhibit. For that reason, we hope you will visit us often, plan to buy for yourself or others, and experience the thrill of why little things mean a lot!

Michele Schuff “Seasonal Color”      Gallery Walk at Terminus

November 19 – February 20, 2012

Curator’s Statement:

In most cultures, there are colors specifically associated with seasons and celebrations. The winter and holiday season here in America is one that has strong ties to color. The snow and ice that typically arrives during this time of year makes white a common color associated with winter, while shades of red, green, blue and black harken to the religious celebrations of Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.

This exhibition presents artwork made by artists working entirely within the color white. A color with surprisingly unlimited possibilities, the artists represented use every medium in order to explore its many shades, tones and textures. These white artworks are then juxtaposed and contrasted against bright red, green, blue and black backgrounds as an examination and tribute to all of the cultural associations of the season.
