“Mirror of Life II: An Exploration of the Built Environment”
Curated by Sang-Mi Yoo
Reception: Thursday, March 16, 6 - 8 pm
In his book, To-morrow: A Peaceful Path to Real Reform in 1898, Sir Ebenezer Howard describes Garden Cities as an idealized living environment to balance mankind’s needs. Ever since then, many urban planners have developed this idea to further realize their utopian visions. In reality, the built environment influences our everyday life in various urban and non-urban settings. How do artists observe the built environment and infiltrate that information? The five artists plus one collaborative team raise questions about built environments through their political, environmental, romantic and idealistic lenses.
Participating Artists: Amze Emmons, Nick Conbere & John Holmgren, Kevin Haas, Jessica Meuninck-Ganger, Nick Satinover and Sang-Mi Yoo

“Blue Plastic Goat” work by Lauren Peterson
Artist Talk: Thursday, March 16th, 6 - 8 pm
Once an object reaches the household curb it loses its original purpose. Any and every object becomes trash, ambiguous, disgusting, and homogenous to a multitude of other rejected objects through the single action of its placement for disposal. Even though the object may not lose any of its physical qualities – the object may retain its shape, size, color, etc. – our capacity to describe lessens because the object has lost its use-function. Blue Plastic Goat is a text-based installation containing descriptions of discarded objects. By obscuring legibility and placing text as simple form this mixed-media installation approaches the transitional moment from useful good to useless bad, identifiable to unidentifiable.

Hathaway Contemporary Gallery
Monoprints by Karen Schwartz
Reception: Thursday, March 16, 6-9pm
Karen Schwartz is an artist and also a clinical psychologist. She is interested in the way in which her two practices cross-pollinate, and addresses the overlapping topics to both psychoanalytic and art audiences. “I think of monoprinting as capturing the dialogic nature of the artist's interaction with materials and surfaces that have qualities of their own. The monoprint process highlights accident and invites the artist to recognize form amidst accidental happenings according to her own subjective priorities and preoccupations."

“Norman Wagner, SGCI Award for Teaching Excellence”
Solo exhibition of works by Norman Wagner, recipient of the Award for Teaching Excellence. In addition to sharing work representing his past, Wagner will be showing a series of collagraph-monoprint assemblages. “Some of these artworks utilize oil based intaglio process color inks, while the most recent artworks utilize the water-soluble, soy-based Akua intaglio inks, which for me inform a new printing experience—resulting in significantly different color enhancement.” Norman considers his art to be experimental in nature, intuitive and introspective, yet not adhering to any particular mode of expression. His working repertoire includes: drawing, subtractive relief printmaking, lithography, serigraphy, hand set type, letterpress, aspects of handmade paper, assemblage, assemblage sculpture, installation art, and digital photo montage.

Orpheus Brewery SGCI Portfolio
“Orpheus: Never Look Back”
Reception: Thursday, March 16, 6-10pm (ticketed event only)
orpheusbrewing.com/ 1 440 Dutch Valley PL, NE, Atlanta, GA 30324
The story of Orpheus, is fraught with “arrivals and departures”. Endowed with the gift of music, Orpheus uses his ability to charm the earthly and spiritual realms, escaping the sirens call during his adventures with the Argonauts, and persuading Hades to return Eurydice from the Underworld. Even in death, Orpheus’s head and lyre were saved from his attackers and carried to safety by the winds and water. While “Never Look Back” is an interpretation of Hades instructions to Orpheus in his retrieval of Eurydice from the Underworld, it speaks universally to the bold acceptance of the decisions we make and the resulting paths and directions forged.
Artists include members of the SGCI Atlanta Steering Committee & other invitees: Hannah Adair, Aaron Artrip, Robert Brown, Abby Bullard, Valerie Dibble, Terri Dilling, Kathy Garrou, Jerushia Graham, Melissa Harshman, Stephanie Kolpy, Eun Lee, Cynthia Lollis & Daniela Deeg, Michael Marling de Cuellar, Chris Neuenschwander, Gina Reynoso, Cassidy Russell, Debrah Santini, Geo Sipp, Stephanie Smith, Deborah Sosower, Sergio Suárez, Matthew Sugarman
