"Lines & Strikes" Artists Raising Social Consciousness for the North Atlantic Right Whale
Feb
9
to Feb 10

"Lines & Strikes" Artists Raising Social Consciousness for the North Atlantic Right Whale

Every year, December marks the season for North Atlantic Right Whales to come home to Georgia's waters to calve their newborns.  Over the last four months, North Atlantic Right Whales have faced the largest die off event in recorded history. Seventeen whales have surfaced dead in the northern end of their migratory area. This is a huge impact on a population of less than 450, making them the most endangered large marine mammal on the planet. 

On February 9th, local and international artists will come together to share the message of life and death in the anthropocene. Artists will explore any interpretation they have for the beauty of the North Atlantic Right Whale, and or their dire struggle to survive. 

Funds raised from this auction will benefit the Tybee Island Marine Science Center. The center has developed an education program to launch in 2018. This is an important part of how we can connect our local communities to our local whales.

"Lines & Strikes" will be open to the public on Friday, February 9th from 12 - 9PM, with a reception from 6 - 9PM, and on Saturday, February 10th from noon - 5PM.

"Margins" by Henry Dean
Jan

to Jan 13

"Margins" by Henry Dean

Join us during First Fridays in Starland on January 5th for the Opening Reception of "Margins." Henry Dean is a multi-media artist who lives and works in Savannah, GA. He teaches Foundations Studies at the Savannah College of Art and Design and is director/coordinator of the SCAD Drawing Minor. 

“Margins” features two environmental pieces — "Tilt", a marsh installation executed near Port Royal in South Carolina and "Crescent Sun", a real-time video capture of a site-specific work set up in the path of totality during the August 21st 2017 solar eclipse.

For "Tilt," Dean purposefully wrapped nine canvases creating minimalist compositions rendered in natural media (bentonite, clay, hematite, charcoal), then placed them in the marsh on tripod rigs. 

"Crescent Sun," with its audio soundscape, provides an uncanny, sensory experience. Dean was inspired by eclipse fever and the pilgrimage quality of the once-in-a-lifetime event. 

“Margins” is on display from January 4th - 13th and may be seen during the gallery’s normal business hours, Thursday – Saturday, noon to 5PM. Also, be sure to join us for the closing reception and artist talk on Saturday, January 13th from 5 to 7PM.

BSRising (BrainstormRising)
Nov

to Nov 18

BSRising (BrainstormRising)

In October of 2016, Troy Wandzel and AJ Perez came together to facilitate an art installation/collaboration titled "ABrainStorm" that asked all walks of life to participate by lending their "voice" in whatever medium, to the overall outcome of the project. This project was interrupted by Hurricane Matthew as well, which one may say, lent its own voice to the final display.
This installation was about a shared process, how working together to create a space that is a reflection of our collective spirit has the power to unify the diverse languages that make up our community. 

Just over it's 1 yr anniversary, #BSRising is the next installment of an ongoing installation which will include Emile Fu as another co-creator. Emile, Troy and AJ will be using all the same materials from last years project and ONLY those materials. Their goal is to reinterpret the "diverse languages" by reconfiguring the "collective voice" and how it interacts in the same space but with new vision.

Opening Reception: Friday, November 17th from 6 - 9PM

The Unaffected Nude: A Photographic Retrospective" by Geoff L Johnson

Geoff L Johnson presents a retrospective of environmental nudes representing 20 years of introducing the female form into everyday environments.

Johnson works with friends and acquaintances, instead of professional models, and the resulting images show an organic creative process between photographer and model. In contrast to highly edited studio nudes, the unaffected nude is natural and unfiltered.

See a Savannah with winged alligators high above Forsyth Park and Southern Belles portrayed with a baroque aesthetic.

"Savannahland X" is on display from October 5th - 14th

"Partial Recall: An Installation" by Samantha Delaney

 

Samantha creates work inspired by the unsolicited recall of memory. Through exploration of the materiality of photography, video projection, sound and smell, Samantha creates multi sensorial environments which materialize this phenomenon. She believes in the beauty of the mundane aspects of life- these quotidian moments have a magical, sublime ability to transport us to a particular time and place, emotion or sensation.

Degradation of Memory - by Shelby Leigh Beatty

to Jun 3

Degradation of Memory - by Shelby Leigh Beatty

“Degradation of Memory” is an exhibition of works exploring how we, as humans, perceive memory and how we utilize photography as a means of expanding our memory beyond what it is actually capable of.  Photography seems to be a great method of 'memory' until you want to taste, smell or hear something from another time, and are left with only images.  By use of experimental printmaking, deterioration of imagery and use of foreign language and dialects, Shelby delves into what she perceives as conscious memory and how she remembers certain aspects of her recent life.
