Taking a deeper look into the practice of just a few artists, the exhibition series “Spotlight” will showcase the work of Ali Norman, Joseph Peragine and Helen Kuykendall this year. Norman, a recent MFA graduate from the Lamar Dodd School of Art, infuses elements of fantasy, natural history and dreams into meticulously illustrated prints. Georgia State professor Peragine paints tender portraits of cute animals with an unusual silky surface. Kuykendall, a former landscape architect with the National Park Service, balances realism and romanticism through surrealistic landscapes that are interrupted by floating, still-life-like fruits and root vegetables. “Spotlight 2018” will remain on view through Sept. 15.
