What are you doing on Thursday night?!  If you answered “hopefully seeing great art in one of Atlanta’s most historic homes, eating sweet and savory southern snacks, and taking part in a cool educational experience” then we’ll see you at The Sidewalk Art Project – Gallery Show.

Sidewalk Radio, in creative partnership with SCAD Atlanta, is hosting a gallery opening at the Atlanta Preservation Center on Thursday June 21st showcasing original works of art created by a select group of SCAD’s very best.

For this cutting edge gallery show each student has prepared a piece of visual art inspired by an episode of Sidewalk Radio. Using various mediums from photography, to painting, to printmaking, to sculpture, each student has been given free interpretation for his or her work.

The show will be juried by some of Atlanta’s most noteworthy art patrons, producers, and critics, and the artist who takes “Best in Show” will be a featured radio guest for this month’s Sidewalk Radio show all about arts education.

Come celebrate and support local artists, education, preservation, and one of Atlanta’s newest creative partnerships.

Thursday June 21, 6:30 pm –  9:00 pm

At The Atlanta Preservation Center

Oh, and did we mention FREE WINE & BEER??  YEP.


From Brett Osborn's Paris Hilton series

Come check out Kai Lin Art this Friday as terra opens, a new exhibition featuring local painters Brett Osborn and Alexi Torres.

Brett is the Dean of the School of Fine Arts at SCAD and will show his Paris Hilton series (or “things she should have been doing to become this famous,” as he puts it) and his “Homework Landscapes.”

Alexi, who is originally from Cuba, approaches his art with an awareness of his personal history and that of the worlds.  In his words, “I still find myself in each painting and I am aware of creating a necessary message: which is to be conscious of living, critical thinking, and feeling art.’

The opening runs from 7 to 10 at 3096 Roswell Rd in Buckhead.

PS.  If you get out a little early consider grabbing a slice from Pie Shop.  The Hood prefers the Savory Sweet Potato Pie, but the menu changes so don’t hold him to availability.

SCAD is at it again, bringing both style and design to Atlanta (and Savannah) from April 25th – 29th, with their signature programming series, SCAD Style.

Kicking off the week is a Scott Schuman Lecture, MONDAY APRIL 25TH AT 6:00 PM.

The creator of “The Sartorialist” comes to SCAD Atlanta, Events Space, fourth floor, Building C, again, 6:00 PM.

Scott Schuman is the founder and photographer behind “The Sartorialist,” the internationally renowned blog that features street fashion from around the world. The New York Times called the blog “the bellwether American site that turned photo blogging into an art form.” And, Mr. Schuman definitely got it right when it comes to pinpointing style here in the “A”, as evidenced by the photo of Matt Lambert (one of our favorite friends at Sid Mashburn).

Come hang with SCAD, be in Style.  Oh, and if you need a quick lesson on “How To See Art”, then look (and listen) no further.

Sidewalk Radio, hosted by Gene Kansas, is a show about art, architecture, design, development, city planning and preservation.  Creative, cultural, and colorful guests share their stories and insights on this monthly, 20-minute Special Feature on AM 1690’s “The Voice of the Arts”.

December’s Sidewalk Radio, “The Art Show”, considers the question about “How To See Art” from four uniquely creative perspectives.  On this show we hear from The Creator, The Curator, The Career Counsler, and The Chainsaw (wait, you’ll see a little later in this post).

The “Creator”: Radcliffe Bailey, one of Atlanta’s most celebrated artists.

The “Career Counsler”: Robert Brown, Chair of Printmaking at SCAD.

The “Curator”: Artistic Director for the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Stuart Horodner.

The “Chainsaw”: Terry Legge joins Sidewalk Radio for a few words about divine intervention, innate ability, and therapy through art.

Originally aired Monday December 6th at 8:30 AM & 6:30 PM on AM 1690 “The Voice of the Arts”.
