Art Exhibit - Recollections

event image

Recollections is a collaborative project between {Poem88} and the Atlanta Preservation Center. Archival materials including photographs and written accounts available through the Atlanta Preservation Center will serve as source materials for five {Poem88} artists, Jon Ciliberto, EK Huckaby, Al Matthews, Sharon Shapiro and Nancy VanDevender, who will each create bodies of work in response. Infused with the hallmarks of their own oeuvre, artists will create anew architectural renderings, portraits of Grant family members, period wallpapers, and objet d’art. A portion of all sales will benefit the Atlanta Preservation Center.

Pictured right is Be Kind by Sharon Shapiro, graphite on paper, 10 inches round.
