Weekend arts agenda: Slow your roll, savor it! July 17 2009



Events at Beep Beep Gallery have featured live DJs, local bands including Judy Chicago and Noot d' Noot, and even live storytelling performances. On a good opening night, conversations typically spill out onto the sidewalk, sometimes into the street. Enthusiasm runs high.

But the gallery's also open during the day. You might be surprised at the finer details, and nuances of meaning, learned from just a little "quiet time" spent with original artwork. Even if you experienced the reception for Sam Parker's Neoteny last weekend, the works still merit another view. Regular hours are Fri.-Sat. from 12-6 p.m. (Watch the Studio Visit interview above for some background on the show.)

Saltworks Gallery's Flood of Pictures is another exhibition worth a second view. Brian Dettmer's intricate craftsmanship has few rivals, in Atlanta or much anywhere. As stated in Susannah Darrow's recent review, it's "pretty fucking cool."

Saltworks is one of five galleries participating in the Westside Arts Walk + Wine Pairings event. Attend all five (free) wine tastings and receive a 10% discount at Hop City!

In photographer Tierney Gearon's latest series EXPLOSURE, currently on view at Jackson Fine Art, boulders are rendered lighter than air, shadows crawl toward the sun, and ghostly forms cheerfully mingle with the living. "Frame 18" watches two worlds collide within a single image: A gray-haired businessman gasps as the sidewalk dematerializes into thin air, while a bikini-clad swimmer stands... | more...
