It’s that time of year again. Time to retire your puffy down jacket to the closet and start coming outside again. It’s also time for a new show here at Mason Murer.
We’re particularly excited about this show. We’ve got a bunch of our old favorites, as well as a few really amazing new artists.
Our Spring show will open with Robert Marx drawings, paintings by Jeanie Tomanek, Karen Hollingsworth, Craig Hawkins, and Will Rafuse. We will be welcoming paintings from new artists: animal portraiture by Ray Hare and urbanscapes by Valerio D’Ospina. Additionally, we will be showing photo based works from Robin Davis and sculptures from Steve Steinman and Todd Fuller. Finally, two groups from academia round out our exhibition: the Georgia High School Art Symposium and Damn Fine: a SCAD MFA Group Show.
We will also be continuing the Cigar Box Art Project to benefit future art therapy programs at Mason Murer.
The show will open with an artist’s reception on Friday, April 5, from 7 to 10 pm, and will run through May 11, 2013.

Terry Turrell, one of our longest standing artists, recently released this documentary about his works and process. It’s pretty awesome.
We will be getting our shipment of DVDs in soon, and you can pick one up for a mere 15 bucks.
In the mean time, check it out here.

Happy New Year everybody! We hope you had a great 2012, a fantastic holiday season with your friends and family, and that you’re looking forward to another great year in 2013.
You’re probably tired of partying for the moment(New Years hangovers can last a few days), but when the mood stikes you again, why not party with these Party Animals?
