Special Alert

Gallery @ Hotel Indigo-Athens presents - SPOTLIGHT

Please join us for the Artist Reception on July 14th from 6:30 – 8:30 pm.  It is hot outside, so come inside for cocktails and art at the Indigo.

SPOTLIGHT, a summer exhibit, an opportunity to look deeper into an artist’s work and practice, focuses on works by three artists who share a quiet beauty, sublime surface, minimal color palette and a graceful line.

Featuring works by Judith McWillie, Teresa Cole and Pete Schulte.

Judith’s paintings circle around studies of cosmology, spirit and the Native stories of the “Beloved Land”.  “These paintings are artifacts of Beloved Land, a libation ceremony and performance, held on June 4, 2016 at Smithonia Plantation House in honor of the native Muskogee/Creek and Cherokee Nations of North Georgia, the enslaved African Americans, and post Civil War convict laborers buried there.” 

Teresa’s new work in SPOTLIGHT is inspired by travels to Japan. Created with washi, Japanese style kozo paper made from mulberry bark. Each sheet of paper was folded and hand dyed, some were relief printed with white ink.

Technically exquisite, Pete’s graphite drawings run from the monumental to the miniature.  Each with sharp edges and soft surfaces, Pete’s drawings engage space, light in an optical playfulness.
