A gigantic, immersive aerial art installation is at Atlanta Botanical Garden
SUPERnatural: Aerial Art in Motion, Glass Art in Bloom, began on May 15 and will run throughout the summer. Beautifully combining art and nature, there’s a duo of art exhibitions at Atlanta Botanical Garden that are not to be missed.
Firstly, Poetic Kinetics’ Patrick Shearn was given a new canvas to transform into a trippy wonderland. Part of Shearn’s signature Skynet Art Series, “Dream Flora” is composed of red, orange, purple, and yellow nylon streamers attached to webs of fishing net that are suspended by ropes in the trees of the Southern Seasons Garden.
The installation extends to the Canopy Walk, where it flows above, under, and beside the suspension bridge. Crossing the entry road at two points the kinetic sculpture glides through the air like a flock of birds.
As well as “Dream Flora”, on display through Sept. 19, the contemporary glass art is the creation of Seattle artist Jason Gamrath, presented through Oct. 31.
Gamrath presents dozens of large-scale contemporary glass sculptures reflecting the beauty of nature. The insanely beautiful sculptures represent blooming plants, including orchids, pitcher plants, aloes, lotuses and more – all created by hand with no molds.
SUPERnatural: Aerial Art in Motion, Glass Art in Bloom started May 15, with “Dream Flora” concluding on Sept. 19 and Gamrath’s exhibition ending on Oct. 31.
