Gallery One | Jasmine Best, Laura Little, Aaron McIntosh + Renzo Ortega
October 4-November 30
This group exhibition explores aspects of Southern identity and experience that exist in the shadow of the stereotypical “South.” Using various lenses to explore Southern identity including, Queer culture, mestizaje, kitsch, and blackness, these artists present a rich and messy look at contemporary Southern life.
Gallery Two | Coulter Fussell + Antonia Perez
November 1-December 28
Alabama-based quilter, Coulter Fussell and New York-based mixed media artist, Antonia Perez explore the notion of the heirloom through textile based techniques. Fussell applies a modernist aesthetic to traditional Southern quilting and dying techniques. Perez, crochets monumental scale objects out of plastic bags. Both artists push the boundary of tradition and innovation to redefine what an heirloom can be.

Corridors | Lety Alvarez, Cornelio Campos + Peter Marin
November 1-January 25
Studio 206 | An exhibition by Julio Gonzalez curated by Rafael Osuba will be on view.
