“Wild is the Wind”
Pei Ling Chan Gallery, 332 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., and
Gutstein Gallery, 201 E. Broughton St.
Paying homage to the 1957 American standard “Wild is the Wind,” made popular over several decades by musical icons including Johnny Mathis, David Bowie, George Michael, Cat Power and Nina Simone, this exhibition brings together a collection of recently produced work that resonates in profound ways with the enduring tune. The song lyrics make an appeal for love, intimacy, escapism and transcendence as love is like the wind, and wild is the wind. Similarly, each work in the exhibition offers poetic visual and emotive moments through the exploration of translation, fantasy, epic voyages, and deep engagements with melancholia. The exhibition runs Jan. 8-Feb. 28 at the Gutstein Gallery and Jan. 22-March 12 at the Pei Ling Chan Gallery. Pei Ling Chan Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Gutstein Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; and Sunday 1-4 p.m.
“Doublethink” by Rocio Rodriguez and Martha Whittington
Pinnacle Gallery, 302 E. Liberty St.
“Doublethink” is an exhibition featuring SCAD Atlanta foundation studies professors Rocio Rodriguez and Martha Whittington, whose works share many complementary aesthetic and conceptual properties. Through looping, map-like webs and spinning vortexes, Rodriguez’s large abstract painting and Whittington’s kinetic, sculptural installation simultaneously recall the beauty and destructive power of nature while referencing theoretical, political and scientific themes.
