What is going on in SCAD’s “Modern Love” exhibition?

The words “modern love” evoke a variety of emotions, so an art show devoted to the phrase is bound to be complicated. In Modern Love, up at the Gutstein Gallery until August 20, there’s a lot going on, and the theme doesn’t seem to fit the majority of the works in the exhibition.     Modern Love is a juried exhibition with over a hundred works by SCAD faculty, alumni, student and staff. The show synopsis notes that the...

“Profiles of Poverty” puts a face on a state-wide crisis

We think we know what it looks like; the tents under bridges, a person ahead of us in line at the grocery store paying with SNAP, or the far-away faces at a bus stop. Yet rarely do we get a glimpse into the reality beyond our own perceptions of poverty for deeper understanding.

“Yamacraw in the Sun” sheds light on a complex Savannah neighborhood

On the west side of Savannah, between West Boundary and MLK up near Bay, is a little neighborhood called Yamacraw Village.

Its residents are all criminals who leer at any outsiders from their porch, and if you walk through there at night, you’ll definitely be shot or mugged or assaulted. Marian...

“Proclivity” examines force of habit through painting, sculpture, video

Have you ever thought about how you began a habit? Let’s say you bite your nails. Do you remember the very first time you put your finger in your mouth and chewed down? What did the action offer you in the moment—a way to channel your frustration or anger or anxiety into a physical activity? Does the habit affect you now? Do you ever consider how your nail-biting could reflect your deep-hidden beliefs?     Proclivity, the...

Review: Sidney Davidson’s “An American Hero”

  Sidney Davidson has no intention of being an American hero. You will not find any capes, kitsch, self portraits, or American flags at this Friday’s exhibition, An American Hero. If this feels misleading, it’s meant to. The show’s poster, inspired by times the artist received uncomfortable responses regarding his work, sets the viewer up to experience his exhibition with a bit of humor, an acceptable level of uneasiness, and a...
