On multiple days

This exhibition opens Oct. 23, 2018 and continues through Feb. 2, 2019. The exhibit features a dozen artists who work in or who were educated in Georgia as they investigate interiors, domesticity and identity. The artists in Home Tour investigate the domestic environment through a lens that is simultaneously sugary sweet and sharply sour. Exposing the nature of place, these works are not without extreme beauty and whimsy, but they also offer a sensation of longing and nostalgia, and the desire for the feeling of belonging.
