The next opening at One Twelve Gallery is opening on Friday, May 4th and entitled “Resurrected”.  The event is free and open to the public.

Resurrected is a display focused on mixed media art and features four Atlanta-area artists:

  • Artist Abi Wright uses the medium of collage to explore themes such as femininity, technology and old vs. new. She is interested in the idea of taking objects apart—cutting, tearing, burning—and then reassembling them to give them new life and purpose.
  • Woodworkers Derek Hensel and Michael Sink began collaborating about a year ago. It wasn’t their original intention to create art—they just started hacking up some wood salvaged from an old house, and the ideas started flowing. Says Hensel, “We love the idea of using wood that would have ended up in a dumpster to create something meaningful. The incorporation of light into the pieces allows the materials to tell a story. It’s amazing to realize that most of the wood we used hasn’t had light cast on it for a century.”
  • Sculptor Patrick Toups became interested in the foundry process and iron casting while studying sculpture at East Carolina University and later at Georgia State. Says Toups about his work, “I let my material dictate what the sculpture wants to be. There is no forcing it to happen, just a relationship to how I work with it as it manifests itself.”

RSVP for the opening on Facebook!

The gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 11am to 4pm and by appointment with the show closing on July 22nd.
