Art Around Athens
Today (Thursday, July 2) is your last day to catch the exhibition of North Georgia Folk Festival posters drawn by Art Rosenbaum that's been on display at Ciné all too briefly. Installed as part of AthFest, the posters date from as far back as 1984 and depict musicians who have performed at the festival.
ATHICA also has a new exhibition up, Emerges III: Journeys, which consists of new work by three young local artists and one team of artists. Curators Mary C. Wilson and Erin McIntosh selected the artists from more than two dozen entries, and their work is more conceptual than in previous years. New this year is a satellite space in the Bottleworks complex at 337 Prince Avenue, where Robert August Peterson’s American Male, Age 32 (2009)--a multimedia installation using five video projectors and four speakers--can be experienced. ATHICA is open Thursdays from 6 to 9 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 6 p.m. and by appointment (although it's closed this Friday due to the July 4 holiday). Tonight at 7 at ATHICA and 8:30 at the Bottleworks is "Walk & Talk," in which you can meet the artists, the curators and Dr. Amy Ross, UGA Geography Professor, for a discussion of the ideas behind the exhibition.
