“Emerges VII” Opening Reception


While the majority of artists whose work makes it to the walls of ATHICA are professionals, the gallery’s “Emerges” series is an annual exhibition dedicated specifically to showcasing local, up-and-coming artists. This summer’s installment, curated by ATHICA Director Tatiana Veneruso and multi-media artist Ted Kuhn, includes 2D and 3D works by Addison Adams, LED light sculptures by Gabriel Cymerman-Bird, a polaroid installation by Jordana Dale, mixed media paintings by Christopher Nelms, paintings on shaped canvases by Jason Matherly and a foam sculpture installation by Jason Sokolic. “Athens has a lot of well known, well established artists, but we are such a transient town—talented people move here every year. Some are students, some are just new to town and haven’t had the chance to show here. It gives us the opportunity to put a spotlight on artists and work people are unfamiliar with,” Veneruso says. “Emerges VII” will be on display through Sunday, Aug. 24.

6–8 p.m. Donations encouraged. www.athica.org
