With themes of irony, contradiction and humor in her exhibition “Upon the Wheel,” Michele Mikesell utilizes symbolic storytelling through figurative painting in the tradition of 17th century Dutch painters as well as 20th century photographers.
Her new work is an homage to Upton Sinclair’s novel The Jungle (1906) about immigrant life in the meat packing industry.
Internationally acclaimed local photographer Gabriel Benzur’s debut exhibition “The Geometric Landscape” is held in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography 2012 and will also feature his incredible woodturnings.
