CRITIC’S PICK: New collage works by Lillian Blades, recipient of the Excellence in Arts award from The Bahamas consulate in Atlanta, are being presented within the notably dissimilar landscapes of the Fuqua Conservatory Lobby, Orchid Center Atrium, and Orchid Center Display House. “Light plays an important part of the work. I love how it bounces, how it goes through the materials and creates a stained glass effect with color,” Blades says. “I love the fact that you can see through it, you can move around it, almost like a wall, but treating it in a way like a painting, thinking of color, value, texture, the reflective qualities, the transparency of it.” Her brilliant work has appeared in solo and group exhibitions, and in public and private commissions in the United States as well as The Bahamas, Trinidad, Germany, and South Africa. — Kevin C.
