The walk up the wide granite stairs between the elegant white columns of the UGA Chapel makes a visitor feel just as its architect no doubt originally intended: as if you have left the ordinary world and have arrived somewhere beyond. Approaching and entering it fills you with a sense of occasion. You are about to encounter something special.
On Friday, Jan. 30, the occasion was a visit to Athens by sustainable designer and fashion celebrity Natalie Chanin. The event was part of the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts’ Global Georgia Initiative.
Chanin has built an international following with her skirts, dresses and blouses that while exhibiting a high level of design and craftsmanship, celebrate the handmade and the imperfect with simple appliqués and large, playful stitching.
The Classic City Rollergirls opened the 2016 season with the Green vs. Black intrasquad bout Saturday at the Classic Center. Team Green won 176-156. Below, check out a selection of photos from the event.

With its pristine white walls, large windows inviting in natural light, polished concrete floors, and generous track lighting, the Gallery@Hotel Indigo is a standout among Athens’ art viewing spaces. Add to that the unique vision of curator Didi Dunphy, and you’ve got a must-visit gallery space.
The opening on Thursday for “Chain Reaction” testified to this. The space was crammed with young and old, artists and art appreciators alike. The adjacent lobby and nearby bar graciously accommodated the overflow. The music playing in the background went unheard until the end of the evening because of the din of conversation. Oh, did I mention the parties?
Celebrating the best in anime, sci-fi, comics and gaming, AthCon is an annual convention featuring vendors, guest appearances, panel discussions and plenty of costumes.

A growing town that recycles and reloads a healthy portion of its population with great frequency deserves the benefit of a public service reminder, every now and again. The more you know.
