This luminous exhibit at the Atlanta Contemporary is a neon-dream
The juxtaposition of neon and nature may be an oxymoron, but at this inspiring exhibition, the contrasting ideas collaborate beautifully. Tayler Drattlo is exhibiting a collection of neon art at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. The artist studied neon design at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, and has been working full-time in the neon industry since 2016.
This particular exhibit, entitled Veiled, represents self love and mandatory indulgence through floral imagery and glowing lights. Drattlo states on the Atlanta Contemporary website, “I wanted to create a composition using vivid color to draw the viewer in. The neon glow from the soft lily encompasses the environment like a blanket. The soft translucid argon gas mixture inside the frame tubes appears dream-like with their wondrous glow.”
So immerse yourself in this neon wonderland at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, on display until May 15, 2022. However, there’s so much going on at the museum, as this exhibit is just a fragment of their stellar collection of exhibitions and things to do.
Other notable exhibitions include Genevieve Gaignard’s ‘This Is America’, which made our round-up of unmissable art and history exhibits to check out this Women’s History Month in Atlanta. Drattlo & Gaignard are just two of the many female artists on display at the Atlanta Contemporary.
Veiled was curated by art consultant & curator, Lauren Jackson Harris. Art advisor and curator Karen Comer Lowe was the curator for This Is America. With so much female representation, the Atlanta Contemporary is the perfect place to visit this Women’s History Month and beyond! It’s also important to note that the gallery frequently commissions new works, paying particular attention to artists who have not had a significant exhibition in the Southeast, continuously bringing diverse and unique exhibitions and installations to the ATL.
Admission to the Atlanta Contemporary is free, however, all guests and Members must have a ticket or reservation. Click here to visit their website.
