Duncan Johnson

Went by Marcia Wood gallery the other day to pick things up for client approval and walked out with one of these beautiful pieces by Duncan Johnson.

They’re painted and distressed reclaimed wood that have been meticulously cleaned and sanded, then adhered to panels; most embodied flat nail heads and graphite lines connecting them, to create these beautiful architectural quilt-like pieces. Seeing these in person are 100 times more moving and interesting to the sight and mind than just seeing them on a computer. It’s like if you stare long enough you might be able to hear all the stories these wood pieces have to tell. Absolutely beautiful.

Hey Atlanta! Come out to this tonight if you’re looking for something to do! I’ve got 3 pieces in it, and there’s a butt load of other amazingly talented people’s work to look at as well! Dooooooo eeeeeeeeeeeet.

ATL Urbanist: Pretty new bridge for Peachtree Street

describemz:

atlurbanist:

I’m such a sucker for concept art! When I read about the plan to spend millions of dollars to spruce up two Peachtree Street bridges over the interstates, I was skeptical about that being a good use of money.

But then I saw the pictures and now I love it! The above pic is of the bridge…

As a SCAD Atlanta alum, I’m excited for this. Not only is it a snazzy bridge, but a much-needed improvement for all the students walking in that area. 

agreed. now if we can just do something about that building that the peach sits on…

So….. Flux really kinda sucked this year. Instead of there being 20+ things to look at, there were only 12, and placed in the strangest of places. gloATL, Ben Rollins, and Stefani Byrd + Wes Eastin were the only artists worth mentioning, which is great for them because their work was great and fit perfectly with the idea of Flux. Everything else? Not worth seeing. I’m so disappointed because Flux [and when it was Le Flash] was always THE thing to look forward to come October. This year? I’m pretty set on not even bothering to go next year. It’s become a joke, and makes me continue to question this sad attempt of an art scene that Atlanta no long has. Really really really disappointed.

Anyone want to be a taste tester for some dessert items?

Anyone know where I can get prints made locally? I need to print a couple of images 16x20 for a show in less than two weeks and I’m not sure where to go. Obviously the print quality has to be good, but it also needs to not be ridiculously priced. I also wouldn’t mind the option of them tweaking the actual images to make them look their best [because I am clearly terrible at doing so myself].

Anyone have any ideas?

Don’t forget! This Friday night is Girl Party, a collection of paintings/illustrations by Atlanta’s own Kelly Cloninger! It’s her first solo show and will be at WhiteSpec, which is next to/part of White Space (for those who don’t already know that). 

There will be a confetti installation, lots of treats and pink champagne, and of course, girls. And art. Be there!!

Breaking news: gloATL, filmmaker Micah Stansell to present outdoor work in Old Fourth Ward park

gloatl:

gloATL

The gloATL dance company will perform a site-specific work in collaboration with Atlanta filmmaker Micah Stansell at the Old Fourth Ward Skatepark next month. The work, titled “the search for the exceptional,” is the first partnership between gloATL dancemaker Lauri Stallings and Stansell.

Looking forward to seeing this! I’ve really been impressed with the work Micah Stansell has done in the past [especially with his wife]. I can’t say that I’ve really “seen” and of gloATL’s work but I remember them causing a lot of conversation at last years Flux. Either way I’m going and it’s going to be awesome, and you should go to.

Meet Millie DeChirico, Queen of the TCM Underground
From the post:

“I watched ‘A Clockwork Orange’ when I was nine-years-old.” DeChirico recounted recently over lunch. “It was totally ridiculous! Somebody probably should have stepped in. Child protective  services, somebody.”

Millie is my girl! When I was still in school and worked at the radio station, she was an advisor of sorts who came in to share some knowledge on us children who knew nothing about starting a radio station [she use to work at GSU’s station]. She is awesome and probably one of the coolest chics I’ve ever met. Awesome article/interview!
