This Hangover III Weekend, May 23rd - 25th

Day by day, it is getting hotter. Thunderheads build up during the day around the horizon. Monsoon rains will soon be with us. Mosquitoes already are. The local storms seem to be quieting.


Please join us for the Opening Reception of the 2013 Artlink Transition Exhibition at the Mahaffey Theater on Thursday, May 23, from 5:30 pm until 7:00 pm. Five Artlink teams will exhibit the artwork they have produced during this five-month long collaborative project. Each team consists of a local professional artist and a Creative Clay Transition program artist apprentice. The following teams will present their work:

Asani N. & Vivian Bowman
Cassandra H. & Judith Salmon
Michael R. & Julie Price
Kayla F. & Zach Thompson
Ryan W. & Rose Marie Prins

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served and a cash bar will be available.

Bringing his wildly inventive sculptural forms to MSG, this is Mason's first solo exhibition in the Southeast United States. Combining material elements of a seemingly incongruent nature, Mason creates three-dimensional masterworks with a nod to Abstract Expressionism.
