Re-Placing Atlanta Closing with the Curators

November 29, 2012

John Dean's "Originals"

Curators Constance Lewis and Jerry Cullum will be at the Drawing Room Gallery this Saturday, December 1, 2012 from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm.

Re-Placing Atlanta encourages a closer look at what is historically woven into a contemporary landscape. New or recontextualized work by Sheila Pree Bright, John Dean, Jody Fausett, “Panorama” Ray Herbert, David Knox, and Marcia Vaitsman present a thoughtfully composed imagining of Atlanta to Atlanta.

Re-Placing Atlanta, which reflects the Atlanta Preservation Center’s mission to promoting preservation in Atlanta through advocacy and education, is in the Drawing Room Gallery which is located in the 1856 Lemuel P. Grant Mansion, itself a site of hidden history. The site was purchased by the APC in 2001 and has undergone extensive restoration. It houses the APC offices and, since the spring of 2012, has boasted a 650-square-foot, professionally lit visual art gallery.

Works by Shelia Pree Bright, Jody Fausett and Marcia Vaitsman are available for purchase.
