4X4

Imagine taking a 10-week art class where your assignment is to mount an actual exhibition. That's just what happened to four students in the Gallery Management program at the Atlanta College of Art community education division. Instructor Mustafah Dhada decided that his four students already had the know-how to organize a show. So they did. 4walls debuts and ends on the same night, March 16, at the Hastings Seed Factory on Marietta Street.
The notion for the show, says student Joey Orr, is that, though they don't have a permanent exhibition space, all they need is four walls. All four organizers have prior curatorial experience. In 4walls, each will promote the work of one artist.
Last fall, Orr coordinated ShedSpace, a series of shows in alternative settings around Atlanta. He's introducing Atlantan Tom Wegrzynowski's Devil Series. Georgia Schley Ritchie, whose interest is in British and Asian artists, recently organized "Young Masters Atlanta" at the former seed factory. Ritchie shows the oil paintings of British artist Paul Bassingthwaighte. Artist and art consultant Jimmie Wright just formed her own company, The Wright Art. She's promoting the painted cardboard collages of Vincent Farley, an Atlanta artist. Patricia Saenz-Abello, who represents Latin American and Caribbean art makers, selected Cuban-born Ana Alonso-Moller, who paints on glass.
4walls will be held March 16 from 8:30-11 p.m. at the Hastings Seed Factory, 434 Marietta Street. 404-236-0253 or 4wallscurators@abello.org.

Coded Language at City Gallery Chastain defies the notion that graffiti writers just scribble on public property. Linh Ho-Carter, the international show's organizer, includes sculpture, paintings, drawings and projections along with an entire bus stop to prove her point. Behind the twisted letters, acronyms and symbols, she says, is a coded visual language that has left its stamp on fine art.... | more...
