Atlanta and Athens artist Jaime Bull is best known for her voluptuous, feminine, swimsuit-clad sculptures. In Rhinestone Cowgirls, an exhibition of new work at Whitespec, her sculptures head for dry land. Underneath their glitz, glam and humor remains a subtle and serious intent. The show is tucked into the small space across the courtyard from the main Whitespace gallery located in Inman Park. It runs through March 23.

Jaime Bull’s solo exhibition Rhinestone Cowgirls opened at Atlanta’s Whitespec (part of Whitespace Gallery) in mid-February. A lone painting welcomes visitors into the gallery, setting a gestural, forward atmosphere. A brilliant pink sky, bright green cacti, sparkly gold sand, and a sloppy coat of gloss melt into a dreamy, disjointed desert sunset. Viewers then turn the corner to a spectacle of shimmering girliness and grit.
