Calendar Pick: Summer Shows Opening Reception

“Mirror Mirror” by Melissa Huang in “Picture This”

The Lyndon House Arts Center will celebrate the opening of four new summer exhibitions with a reception on June 23. “Highlighting Contemporary Art in Georgia: Picture This” features works by 11 narrative painters living across the state, including Cedric Smith, Holly Coulis, Margaret Morrison, Melissa Huang and Tori Tinsley. “Maps, Landforms and River Rafts,” by Cathy and Coulter Fussell, is a series of intricate and rich quilts resembling topographical maps. The West gallery will be filled with the minimalist paintings of Robert Croker, former teacher at the Lamar Dodd School of Art. His watercolor works are intentional, meditative and grand. Finally, on display in the Atrium cases is Jason Matherly’s “For Heather: New Shaped Paintings,” a series of geometric forms and painted backgrounds. Exhibitions will be available to view through Sept. 3.
