Happy New Year from Art Rise! Hopefully your holiday was restful, because there's some great art coming at you this week.
The First Friday Art March is tonight in the Starland District! Graveface Records is holding “Serial Killer and Oddball Art Show,” featuring work by John Wayne Gacy, Charles Manson, Richard Ramirez, and other lunatics. This art is on display for one night only, so don’t miss your chance to view the work that Ryan Graveface says is surprisingly good.
Also opening tonight is “Emergent Geographies” by Jennifer Moss. Her mixed media fibers collages draw on elements of nature and feel both abstract and familiar. The show is on display in the main gallery at Sulfur Studios until January 14.
“There’s Enough Time in Distance” opens January 9 at Starland Cafe. Jordan Fitch Mooney’s prints embrace inconsistency in the printmaking process, like an ink blob in the wrong place. His show will be up until February 21.
“Oils and Watercolors” by Nancy Solana opens on January 12 at Hospice Savannah. The show is dedicated to Nancy’s father, Clifford Lebey, whose last six weeks of life were spent in Hospice Savannah’s facility. This touching show will hang through March.
Closing on January 13 is “Recycled Self: The Limbs that Bind” at the Butcher Tattoo Studio. Victoria Sheppard paints on wood panel, creating a very unique look.
“Eastern Edge” opens at Location Gallery on January 13. Preston Orr’s mixed media pieces are organically modern, and the proceeds from his show will be donated to the Ossabaw Island Foundation. The exhibition runs through February 3.
"Low Country Callings: Goin' With the Flow" by Carol Lasell Miller opens at Ships of the Sea Museum on January 13. The ten large-format acrylics portray maritime life in Savannah, particularly those who live and work on our waterways. The show is up through April 2.
