New show up at the MINI GALLERY: SQUARED, featuring the work of local Athens, GA artists LOU KREGEL and HANNAH JONES (New Sound of Numbers). If you’re in downtown Athens today or out and about enjoying the PRINCE AVENUE ART CRAWL, be sure to stop in at the Mini Gallery to see the new show…it’s also a great chance to collect some affordable pieces by both artists…hope to see you there, starting at 5pm!
Missy and I were lucky enough to FINALLY catch the awe-inspiring PAPER COVERS ROCK exhibit at the LYNDON HOUSE ART CENTER, curated by ART ROCKS ATHENS (ART ROX ATH), our very own “Athens’ art and music preservation society”. We saw the exhibit on it’s very last day back in July, and we were also lucky enough to have the show all to ourselves…
The show focused on the Athens music scene spanning the ten years between 1975 and 1985, as documented through various posters, flyers, photographs, and other various bits and pieces of ephemera…all the bands from that bountiful era of music were represented – R.E.M., B-52’s, Pylon, Love Tractor, etc. etc., but focused heavily on the B-52’s…perhaps because of all the bands from that time, they were the most visually stunning…
CINDY and KATE from the B-52’s, back-in-the-day. So cute!
A very young-looking R.E.M.:

I love this photo of PYLON:
While I hold down the fort at MINI GALLERY today, Missy will be hocking her wares at the first-ever YART SALE over at the NORMAL BAR in the Normaltown neighborhood here in Athens, GA. Lots of great art to be had by a bunch of great local artists – all of it on sale and/or affordably priced. Here’s your chance to get a leg up on Christmas or to spice up your dreary walls. Do it up, Athens!
