Emerge, an exhibition showcasing a group of homegrown new artists and co-curated by artists Perla Zavala and Brittany Wages, opened on March 18th, and will hang in the WonderRoot Gallery until April 11th.
Exploring Intimacy: Using Our Stories to Build Power, a collection of photographic portraits, will be presented by SPARK Reproductive Justice NOW in the WonderRoot Gallery on April 12th. The reception will begin at 6:30, with a big reveal at 7:00.
I [robot] ATL / I [dinosaur] ATL, a collaborative installation, showcases sculptures made in the WonderRoot ceramics studio by studio manager Michael Klapthor and teaching artist Laura Asherman. 5 pairs of sculptures, each composed of one robot by Michael and one dinosaur by Laura, are frozen in battle. Sometimes it’s clear which is about to meet its end, but not always.
While Michael has been working on his robots for a while, Laura had just begun experimenting with dinosaurs in the studio a few months prior to this exhibition. Michael and Laura quickly saw the potential to have their work interact, and both artists feel the collaboration challenged their craft in surprising ways.
And how better to tell a city “I love you” than by fictionally destroying it? Designer Mike Stasny built a set to contextualize the frozen fight scenes in which photo-realistic Atlanta skyscrapers are combined with comic book bursts of color toward the classic King Kong stylings that we all dream in.

Every Thursday from 4-8 pm, the WonderRoot Index exhibits a different artist or group of artists’ work. The WonderRoot Index seeks to encourage experimentation with interaction and display. With the East Atlanta Village Farmers Market as its venue, The WonderRoot Index encourages viewers to think about how art can be further integrated into the world around them, and to get acquainted with local artists in the community.
