Maya Stein creates extended media paintings that investigate the urban landscape through quotidian language in architecture. Her creative process is driven by the venture of capturing a place with the premise that, even within globalization and standardization in America, it is still possible to find elements that are uniquely connected to a place, vernacular elements, that are a worthy subject to highlight and uncover. Since her move from New York to Atlanta, Maya’s focus has turned to suburban life style and driving culture as means to understand Atlanta as well as other similar environments across America.

Saturday July 2, 7-11pm
Can you contain? Can you sublimate? Sometimes I have the feeling I can. Sometimes a particular vision takes a form inside me. Sometimes this happens outside, it becomes a real thing and I feel contained and sublimated. When there is a specific form out of me, I can restart giving shape to something else, because this process never ends.
Repurposed Aggression is a condition of urgency, where uncontrollable, difficult explosions happening inside find ways to come out as a form. This form is dangerous, on the edge of the abyss, yet contained, sublimated and perfect in its own way.
Repurposed Aggression is a long path. Showing its forms can be a frightening exposure. It can hurt but also liberates an awareness of what else runs through our veins, and lets it out.
The shift from a sports career to an artistic one is the spark that moved Walker Keith Jernigan. That shift is one of abandonment and surrender to art, giving the world the forms, disbanding a sense of anxious ownership thus letting them be real devices for everyone. Repurposed Aggression is love, cash, soccer balls, baseball bats, an arrow, ropes, lights, punching bag.

Love/d & Sex/ed - April 14th - May 7th
Love/d & Sex/ed is a meandering visual conversation touching on each issue within the broad spectrum of sex, gender, love, and intimacy. These issues range in both negative and positive contexts, but connect to each other in a complicated and important web of influence, impact, and need, illustrating the challenges and triumphs our society faces when confronting these ideas. The work within the show will address these topics, create space for conversation, and point towards action.
Alongside a new, shifting body of work from Caldas, an assortment of other collaborators, which includes artists, organizers, researchers, and other community members will will manifest this show through physical work, conversations, workshops, discussions, interactive experiences, and performances to create space for thoughtful dialogue and learning. The “conversations” will occur within the space of the gallery, will remain free* and open to the public, and will encourage the thoughtful and sometimes physical participation of the audience.
Participating artists include Maria Alejandra Baetti, Danielle Deadwyler, Iman Person, Jaehn Clare, Estela Semeco, Maggie Benoit, Audrey Gamez, Jac Woo, Grace Thornton, Jennifer Tarrazi-Scully, Aida Curtis, Lauren Hind, Ruth Schowalter, Haylee Anne, Angela Bortone, Nicholas Ward, Adele Ulrich, Ray Manlove, Patty Lacrete, Angela Davis Johnson, Jo Peace, Tom Bell and more.
