With an important public art commission for the City Court of Atlanta this year, an ongoing installation at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport’s baggage claim, and a screening of his animated antiwar film “Pass the Ammunition” at Get This!

PHILIP CARPENTER has been a fixture on the Atlanta scene for more than 20 years now, offering painting instruction at the Chastain Arts Center and the Atlanta College of Art.

With almost three decades logged on the Atlanta art scene, BARBARA SCHREIBER (who's relocating to Charlotte) never lost her will or her wit in her beguiling, intellectually intriguing paintings. Often working in a pleasingly diminutive scale, Schreiber's neat, clever paintings rendered in intense colors often suggested smarter, surrealist "New Yorker" cartoons with ambiguous punch lines. Even though the 1976 Atlanta College of Art graduate was featured in multiple solo shows at Sandler Hudson Gallery, she always mixed it up with younger, untested artists by contributing work to group shows at venues such as Spruill, ShedSpace and Eyedrum. less...
