Theater Bits Blog – ART Station’s Fall Galleries and Georgia Shakespeare Celebrates Flannery O’Connor


ART Station Announces Fall Exhibits in Galleries

ART Station, the contemporary center for the arts in the village of Stone Mountain, opens two exhibits on Saturday, October 5. The exhibits continue through Saturday, November 9. The galleries of ART Station, located at 5384 Manor Drive, with regular hours Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The downstairs gallery will feature “I Phonetics,” the unique and intriguing iPhone Photography of Marie Matthews, in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography. Although this Atlanta artist is known more for her award-winning watercolors, it is no surprise that Marie has embraced and excelled at this cutting-edge art form—she had a twenty-year career in the digital technology field before leaving to pursue her dream of being an artist. Marie’s iPhone Photography has gained worldwide recognition in multiple publications and in online media. It has been exhibited in Los Angeles, London, and Barcelona. We are thrilled to be sharing Marie’s work with metro Atlanta for the first time! Marie will be presenting a Gallery Talk about her work on Saturday, October 12 at 2 p.m.. The talk is free and the public is invited.

The upstairs gallery will showcase the fall members’ exhibit, juried by Christopher Hickey, professor of art at Clark Atlanta University. Member artists of ART Station are eligible to submit work to 3 to 4 member exhibits annually, providing them an opportunity to have their work seen, and perhaps be sold. Almost 50 artists participated in this exhibit.

There will be an opening reception for all of the artists on Saturday, October 5, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. The other galleries in town will also be open that evening for an “Art Stroll.” Guests are invited to visit all of them, free of charge. A map and list of the galleries may be picked up at ART Station. The free event features light refreshments and door prizes. For more information about the exhibits, ART Station or the upcoming Art Stroll, call 770-469-1105.
