Featured in One, One Thousand in May, photographer and artist Dan Powell will be having a closing reception for his painting exhibition entitled "New Works" at The Gallery at Lucky Street Studios in Atlanta on Thursday, June 2nd, from 5:00-8:00pm.
Here’s a bit of Powell’s statement (hat tip to Jason Parker of Atlanta’s Art Relish for the extra info): "Like a patient gardener the river shapes the land around it. The landings where we join the river are likewise shaped by our activities. Whether we launch a kayak or powerboat or just clear a spot to cast a line we are agents of change and leave our mark. I love the landings of the Waccamaw and the Little Pee Dee rivers in South Carolina. There we have come across waiting fishermen, proud brides, excited children and bemused locals. They are dotted with remindersâ€”oyster shells and beer cans, a forgotten sneaker, stray cats and the tracks of countless boat loving dogs. These are the sites of beginnings and endings… The Rhode Island vistas and seascapes are poetic memories of places observed. They serve as Proustian references, fragile madeleines which unleash a flood of pleasant imagery."
The Gallery at Lucky Street Studios is located at 130 Cone St NW, Atlanta, GA, 30303. Here’s a link to Google Maps for directions.
"The greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something, and tell what it saw in a plain way. Hundreds of people can talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see. To see clearly is poetry, prophecy, and religion, â€” all in one." â€” John Ruskin
