Exhibition Opening Party Extravaganza

The various gallery spaces within LDSOA are unveiling four new exhibitions this week. “Ry Rocklen: Local Color” features a collection of found objects that have been flattened, molded and cast in porcelain by Los Angeles sculptor Rocklen during a month-long residency at the art school. “PhotoTopos 1: Rinne Allen, Michael Lachowski & Carl Martin” is the first edition of a new photography biennial exploring ideas of site and place and includes photographs of interiors by Allen, an elaborate self-portrait by Lachowski and portraits of Athenians by Martin. Zipporah Thompson, an MFA candidate at UGA studying textiles, responds to materials through surrealist and folklore traditions in “Menagerie.” In “Jessica Machacek + Ella Weber: Suspended Preservatives,” UGA MFA candidate Machacek and University of Kansas MFA candidate Weber examine the physical and psychological presences of everyday objects through sculpture and photography. The exhibitions will be on view through Thursday, Oct. 9.
