Eight by Two: Paintings by Curt Butler and Christina Foard
April 24-June 6
Thomas Deans Fine Art
690 Miami Circle N.E., Suite 905
“Painting has been a pathway to open and react to memories. I build imaginary spaces and scenes to create sensations,” says Christina Foard, on her current body of work that will be displayed at the Eight by Two exhibition. While both artists touch on the essence of memory—Curt Butler focuses on childhood—their styles contrast. Foard’s paintings involve physically abstract techniques, such as spraying, sanding and scraping paint, whereas Butler’s work involves oils and wax. A painting by Foard features thick lines and blobs that meld into a visual masterpiece. A painting of Butler’s looks like the textured, tattered portrait of a child playing in the sand. The opening reception for the exhibit is Friday, April 24 from 6 to 8 p.m., where light hors d’oeuvres and wine will be served. The exhibit is available to view free of charge. Gallery hours for Thomas Dean Fine Art are Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Pascal Bouterin Exhibit
Huff Harrington Fine Art
4240 Rickenbacker Drive N.E.
Huff Harrington Fine Art presents a solo show, Voyages, featuring French painter and jazz musician Pascal Bouterin. His lyrical oil and watercolor paintings touch on abstract concepts that are inspired by his travels; think narrow urban alleys and vast expanses of hillside landscapes. Traditionally, Bouterin exhibits in France, but he frequently makes American appearances here in Atlanta at Huff Harrington Fine Art. At the opening on May 8 from 6 to 8 p.m., Bouterin will perform with his jazz band, Akpé Motion. Wine and light bites will be served. The exhibit is free to attend—gallery hours are Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
