Sycamore Gallery Presents:

"Teenage Kicks” by Rose M Barron

The Adolescence series by Atlanta artist Rose M Barron, is a photographic study of youth as complex and engaging human beings. Ms Barron says, “This body of work focuses on gend er roles, behavior, and identity. Think back to adolescence and the images in your mind of what you thought you and your friends were like, this series captures the reality of the subtleness of this beautiful experience. Youth can be a time of soul searching for identity while also being consumed with their own image. It is a time of prime physical condition and vitality juxtaposed with feelings of uncertainty about self. My work presents the complexity of young people and encourages the viewer to engage in in their complex and engaging humanity.'

Opening reception featuring Atlanta resident and artist Rose M Barron, Friday May 23 from 7pm until 10pm.Refreshments will be served. Music entertainment will be provided. Everyone is welcome.

For additional information:please contact Sylvia Cross at 404 352 5938 or Rose M Barron 404 274 3227

Jill Celeste Gallery Presents...

“The Human Monochromes” by Sean Rush
May 17-June 30

Contemporary figurative explorations that reference the classical sensitivity of Michelangelo and Da Vinci's drawings. Mr. Rush begins with a traditionally gessoed wood completely covered with a warm sienna oil pigment, then uses rags and brushes in a subtractive process, drawing from live models. The result is a series of very intimate views of stolen moments.

Function Presents...

Cooper Sanchez presents his second independent art event (one night only) at Function in Decatur, GA. His flag-inspired works range from the literal to the metaphoric, including textiles, narrative paintings, and explorations in illumination.
The show concept began after Cooper nearly lost an eye in the summer of '07. The paintings are a celebration of vision and the visual symbology flags connote � utilizing color, composition and references to battles and independence. The flags were designed as gifts to friends locally and internationally as part of the project.
Local seamsters and seamstresses formed an ad hoc "Betsy Ross Society" to sew remnant fabrics together and contribute in their own personal ways to Cooper's textile designs for "Flagship Mark."
