WEDNESDAY

Opening Reception for Juan Logan: Long Silence
SOCO GALLERY
6-8 p.m.
FREE

This is Logan’s first gallery exhibition in a while, and it features paintings and works on paper from his most recent body of work, Elegies. A common theme among the works is constellation-like lines connecting randomly places dots, creating fictional networks that reference our universal connectedness. According to the gallery’s press release these intriguing maps “reinforce our obligation to one another and to unconditional empathy as a means against indifference.”

Katie Walker: Aerial View Opening Reception
Hodges Taylor Gallery
6-8 p.m.

Painter Katie Walker presents recent works rendered in her “expressionistic map-making” style, which are birds eye views of places from her memories. In her studio, she paints on the floor to allow herself the correct perspective from above. The compositions are colorful and filled with flat, geometric planes as well as calligraphic, sweeping strokes. Walker has been associated with Hodges Taylor since the late 1990s and is based in Greenville, SC.
