An homage to the local music scene, “Sound Check” is an exhibition of watercolor portraits painted by Jackie Dorsey. Named after song titles, the collection includes photorealistic renderings of Sam Burchfield, Sienna Chandler of Monsoon, Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood of Drive-By Truckers, Seth Hendershot, Thayer Sarrano, Wrenn and the Grassland String Band. Working from photographs she shoots herself, Dorsey has an incredible eye for capturing expressions and natural lighting. Burchfield and special guests will entertain the reception’s audience at 8 p.m. Additional pieces by Dorsey can currently be viewed in exhibitions at Athens Academy through Oct. 28 and Aurum Studios through December.
