FACES features new beautiful work by Grant Hanna (www.granthanna.com).  Grant states, “The varied nature of the pieces presented here is an intentional document of the ways that my ideas incubate and develop over time, and of how my primary artistic tool – a precise and highly stylized line – can be used in both color and monochrome pieces. As a base for these explorations, I chose the human face – always the same but infinitely varied.”

Come check it out!

Opening reception Saturday May 12th, 7-9pm!

Closing Reception for An Undulating Course!

In Uncategorized on May 2, 2012 at 5:12 pm

 

On Saturday the Atomic Gallery had a closing reception for Laura Ells and An Undulating Course: Rocking Chairs and the History of the World. Laura’s work has kept the walls of Atomic company for the last 2 months while I have been engulfed in my thesis work. While these prints have had a lengthy run, I never once got tired of looking at them. Laura’s prints are intricate and detailed with a sense of humor that is altogether refreshing. I cant wait to see what is next for Laura Ells! Many thanks to her and everyone who came out to the reception.

If you still haven’t had a chance to check out this work, the show will be up through Sunday May 6th. Stop by for a delicious beverage, look at some art, and maybe even pick up one of Laura’s books which are for sale!!

Installation of An Undulating Course: Rocking Chairs and the History of the World

An Undulating Course features work by Laura Ells, a recent graduate of Gordon College. Whimsy, absurdity, and other things of a jovial nature are a few of Laura’s favorite things. This series is an alternate version of history focusing on the impact of the rocking chair. Laura states, “From an early age we are told to learn from history so that we might not repeat the same mistakes. A few years ago I started writing short stories, satirical retellings of famous historical events postulating that rocking chairs played a major role in the various outcomes. By taking stories with which we are more or less familiar and relating the to each other, I am questioning the importance, the reverence of these epic events. With an insignificant object, such as a rocking chair, acting as a catalyst for these stories, are we led to challenge our opinions of history?”
