Weekend arts agenda: Stabbing westward, again April 17 2009

Horizons continue to expand westward, due to the recent addition of Georgia Tech's Robert C. Williams Paper Museum to the membership of the Westside Arts District.

This month, the Contemporary opens four standalone exhibitions by four artists, including Mark Wentzel, Rae Goodwin, Tamy Ben-Tor, and Nancy Popp. Don't miss the final viewing of Ben Roosevelt's mysterious commentary on "suburbanalia," paintings by Hayley Gaberlavage at Octane Coffee bar, and gallery talks at the Contemporary and the Paper Museum, covering its ongoing show of works by Jiha Moon and Nate Moore. Check the WAD blog for a further list of events this Saturday.
