TONIGHT AT MINT GALLERY! 7PM

Wholly Georgia will showcase artworks that shed light on how societal norms bred from religious culture and how living deep in the ‘Bible Belt’ affect the lives of both religious and secular-minded southerners. Viewed from a variety of perspectives, artists critique religious traditions with both lighthearted humor and somber reflection, while others highlight the fulfilling role that religion can plays in their lives.

Featuring the musical stylings of:

"Sex Drive" is a new show at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center that is a part of Atlanta Celebrates Photography, but the art is not limited to photography. A variety of artists explore sexuality in multiple media including video, photography, drawings and paintings. Click on an image to see more photos and information.

A new ACP show at Matre Gallery in Buckhead features photos that were taken and processed on Apple’s iPhone. Stephanie Roberts (right) was on hand to sign her new book “The Art of iPhoneography” that features not only the work of iPhone photographers, but tips on how to take and process photos on the iPhone. The variety of styles and subjects was large, and the body of work impressive from such a small device. The exhibit runs through Monday, October 31.

"How We Handle Secrets" by Karen Tauches- read on BURNAWAY, read on Scout Mob

As part of a Flux Projects event, Louisiana artist and teacher Jes Schrom invited the public to a sewing circle at Young Blood Gallery on Saturday, August 20, 2011. Participants donated several hours each to sit and carefully embroider a secret or two from our community. Some of Schrom’s Secrets of Atlanta were strikingly cathartic: “I’m probably gay;” “My dad doesn’t like me;” and “I lie about my age.” Others were funnier: “I am tempted to touch art at museums.”
