Anthony Greco’s Facts and Patterns, May 24 – July 13, 2018

Of his recent work, Greco writes, “This ‘series’ of work began as small studies for larger paintings.  I soon realized they had a life of their own and they have since grown and evolved.  I began calling them ‘Goyesquas,’ relating them, flimsily, to the late, dark, expressionistic paintings of Francisco Goya.  Whereas those ‘black paintings’ were gloomy, bleak and pessimistic, I see these paper pieces as poetic, dark dirges and elegies…The [pieces in this show] are subtitled either as ‘Collateral Damage’ or ‘Near Certainty.’  They stem from reactions to the kinds of absurd statements we hear on a daily basis in the media.”

Anthony Greco has been a fixture of the Atlanta art community for over 50 years. He holds a Master of Fine Arts from Kent State University, and he taught painting at the Atlanta College of art from 1966 until his retirement in 2006.  His work can be found in various collections, including the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library, The Coca-Cola Company, Georgia’s State Art Collection, the Mint Museum of Art, the Butler Museum of American Art, Kent State University, and many private collections.

Opening reception: Thursday, May 24th, 2018, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Alli Royce Soble’s When the Levee Breaks, January 11 – March 2, 2018

The Callanwolde Fine Arts Center Gallery presents When the Levee Breaks, a solo exhibition by Atlanta artist Alli Royce Soble, January 11 – March 2, 2018.  Alli Royce Soble is winner of the Best in Show Award in the 2017 Callanwolde Juried Art Exhibition, curated by Susan Bridges of Whitespace Gallery.

Opening reception: Thursday, January 11, 2018, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Free and open to the public.

Of her mixed-media works on paper, Soble writes, “The works in this exhibition are a response to changes to my expectations of the world I, and we, inhabit. They are a subconscious reaction to perceived (or very real) chaos. Without the barriers of preconceived limits, this work has allowed me to explore negative space and new media, and to shift from the purely abstract towards something more defined.”
