Hagedorn In July - Art Opening / Artist Talk / Art Southampton

Stay informed, subscribe to the Hagedorn newsletter, follow on facebook and twitter.

Hagedorn Foundation Gallery is pleased to present two one-person exhibitions, by Atlanta sculptor David Landis and Savannah painter June Stratton, that consider how people and nature reflect each other in their behavior, their strength and fragility. The dual exhibition, titled “Animal Dreams,” opens July 17 with an Artists’ Reception from 6 to 8:30 p.m. and runs through September 15. For more opening info, please click here:

In Animal Dreams, each artist’s dreamscapes depict animals and birds in a reflective silver tone – whether cubist aluminum sculptures of floating and falling creatures or silver leaf paintings of birds and animals in midair. Landis and Stratton’s poetic works incorporate the mirror-like material of silver as an intentional nod to the aesthetic use of this treasured tone in classical art of centuries past.

Steve Aishman Talk / July 12 11:30am

Concepts of Cartography and Visual Art July 12th - 11:30 am  To join our talk, click here to RSVP!

In 16,500 BC humans started drawing maps of the night sky. Cartography represents more than just mapping, it represents the human desire to locate where we are in relation to other humans and to the universe around us. As our understanding of the world and ourselves has changed, our maps have changed.

Dean Steve Aishman will discuss how Nanna Debois Buhl and Hans Christian Schink’s work participate in the continued evolution of cartography by displaying contemporary visual representations of how humans locate themselves in a place.

About Hagedorn Foundation Gallery

Hagedorn Foundation Gallery opened in 2009 under the mentorship of Julian Cox, Curator of Photography at the Getty and High Museums. Since that time, the not–for-profit gallery has extended the scope of photography and photo based art in Atlanta focusing on contemporary practices which foreground social and political issues and which frequently push the definition of documentary tradition and artistic manipulation. Exhibitions are augmented by lectures and talks at the gallery by exhibiting artists and panels of cultural, art historical and theoretical experts. Hagedorn Foundation Gallery also offers classic images and vintage and secondary market collections.
