Calendar Pick: Bart King Opening Reception

Bart King

The natural imagery that is the subject of Bart King’s photography is captured using a flatbed scanner and an impeccable eye. The images, often taken up close and with the flora meticulously arranged, are arresting in their vibrancy and detail. King, a multi-talented artist who is also known for his music and children’s books, is having his first ever solo show displaying 15 of these photographs alongside a kick-off fundraiser for his other project, the Forest Heights Blueberry Festival, which was created to build connections and culture while also raising funds for the Community Blueberry Project. The event will also feature a community forum and panel discussion with Athens Land Trust, as well as the launch of Southern Brewing Co.’s new blueberry beer. King’s art will be on display through mid-June, and the Forest Heights Blueberry Festival will be on June 1.
