Exhibit:  "Donald Sultan: Lantern Flowers and Poppies" @ Simmons Visual Arts Center, Sellars Gallery | Gainesville | Georgia | United States

Exhibit: Love’s Vacuum: Works by Dominique Labauvie @ John S. Burd Center, Leo Castelli Gallery
Aug 23 – Nov 15 all-day
Exhibit:  Love’s Vacuum: Works by Dominique Labauvie @ John S. Burd Center, Leo Castelli Gallery | Gainesville | Georgia | United States

Dominique Labauvie’s sculptures create an elegant and fragile dialogue between the raw power of the artist’s hand within the forged steel line and the precarious element of balance in space that these sculptures master.  In this exhibition, color has become a new addition to this conversation about line, balance, and space. Free and open to the public. For more info, call 770.534.6263.
