Activating the Apparatus 2- Strange Matter Group show

importanceofplay.jpg

Activating the Apparatus Volume 2, above all else, is an exhibition put on by Self Identifying Women to illuminate unseen perspectives in Atlanta’s art scene and to celebrate the multifaceted women residing in the southeast, and embolden participating artists. The Strange~Ladies dismiss the male domination that runs rampant in the art world; show after show featuring man after man, with a handful of women thrown in as decoration to satisfy the times. This exhibition seeks to reclaim what should be equally afforded to us but on our own terms and without the bandwagon. This exhibition is about self identifying women and their reflections on their own experiences as a “woman” in the south. Genderqueer, transgender, and cisgender women of all orientations are asked to define womanhood in their own terms…

Women carry muskets in the mangroves and their bones tote pink pistols. In this world, the pink claw is a must. Steely forces yank and bite, peel back flesh to gaze at glossy insides. Female faces become sorrowful TV dinners, gouged at and drooled upon. A woman baptizes herself in the milk of a sister mammal. Her neck sags, her eyes drift apart and deaden - she slips into a blazer, red as steak. From the cave, a cyclops watches on and a t-rex screams, then there is exhilaration. Women seduce each other in blue birch seclusion, commemorated on a satin flag with a tent of future past left for our safety to reside. Flowering planets populate the heavens. The shining images of great women are forever etched in precious metal. Masked women stretch, enlivening the air with magical shapes. Unmasked women relish their hair, their bodies, and their skin – haloed by the sun while unicorns share rainbows. Merged eyes, merged minds, merged hearts. Grow horns. Grow wings. Enlightened eyes cry because women are full of light. Women are the Apparatus. Space and Time for the activation!

Neon Landscape

IMG_8569.jpg

Please join us for the opening of Kacee Friedman's solo exhibition, "Neon Landscape".

Neon Landscape contrasts the natural and the material using neon inspired text, unnatural elements and colors. It represents the modern woman and her struggle between loving nature and a consumer lifestyle. 

Kacee Friedman, also known as Kaceesix, is an artist living and working just outside of Atlanta, GA. She has a background fashion and film, where she worked for most of her adult life. She grew up surrounded by art in her family’s frame shop and art gallery and was constantly creating things. After having her son six years ago, Kacee became a full time visual artist. She started working in mixed media but now mostly produces acrylic paintings on deep canvases. She creates moody, slightly surreal landscapes and cityscapes; sometimes featuring women in high-end fashion or signs. Her work questions spirituality, materialism and what it’s like to be a modern woman.

The Open Mind Center Art Market

Join us for a day of artistic celebration at The Open Mind Art Market, where talented local artists will showcase and sell their stunning creations. Everyone is invited to come and browse this dazzling visual display, featuring mixed media to oil paintings and beyond. We will also have some of our wellness practitioners on hand to offer their services in 15-minute "mini sessions." These services include intuitive readings, Reiki, and energy healing. Art not only enriches the mind and the soul, but it also brings people together. This is a great way to meet artists and art-lovers alike in the Roswell community, at a truly unique locale. Bring the whole family -you’re never too young or too old to start appreciating art!

The Art Market is free to attend, prices of artwork depend on the seller, and each 15-minute "mini session" is $20.
