‘Wagon Wheel’ Opening Reception

Athens’ tiniest art space, Mini Gallery, is showcasing the work of creative couple Sara Parker and Simon Hunt, who run a small business together selling hand-screenprinted textiles and paper prints. “Sara’s paintings on wood depict real and imaginary landscapes inspired by rural Georgia, while Simon presents an excerpt from his ongoing photographic documentation of the Parker home and surroundings,” says gallery co-owner Missy Kulik. The exhibit’s name, “Wagon Wheel,” refers to the road Sara’s family home is on, which serves as both the location of their print studio and a major source of inspiration for their work. In addition to the new exhibit, the gallery features an ever-changing stock of handcrafted items like zines, comics, jewelry, stuffed Tofu Babies sewn by Kulik, and records and cassettes from Pittsburgh label Unread Records. Mini is open Thursday–Friday from 6:30–9 p.m. and Saturday–Sunday from 3–6 p.m.
