& by appointment
Savannah College of Art and Design Painting M.F.A. candidate Savonna Nicole Atkins will exhibit recent work, including painting, textile work, and sculpture in her thesis exhibition "bouquet de dents-de-lions" at Sycamore Place Gallery, 120 Sycamore Place, Decatur, Georgia 30030. The reception will take place on Friday, May 15th, from 7:00pm - 10:00pm. In her thesis work, Atkins explores the nature of insecurities, the notion of perfection, and the absurdity of ideals. The painting and textile work is obsessively filled with layers of paint and stitching, as each piece attempts to outdo its neighbors. In sculptural work, Atkins playfully flips traditional ideals and highlights the common disconnect between intentions and reality.
Reception is free and open to the public.
